Going for Slovakia and Hungary

My first week in Poland was a little bit boring. Dull and straight roads, not everywhere but almost. But above all, the weather was cold and windy and I had to cycle with down/feather gloves most of the time   Still not really realized I'm on an almost three year bike ride around our World. My second week was a bit warmer but not less windy, and apparently the spring has  gone  a little bit further [...]

Spring comes closer

Almost mid April and clear signs of spring are visible but summer far away. Bicycles for small dirt roads between towns I did not think were on the map, but here people live in the middle of the wilderness. In Nässjö, I will stay for a toilet visit at a "Resecentrum" then go on to Vetlanda, Astrid Lindgrens dear hometown. The weather still cool and the dun gloveds are needed. In Nottebäck at a bathing [...]

More headwinds and forest paths to Tidaholm

Take left towards Paradissjön and then on the narrow, sometimes closed gravel roads, some of them are only forest roads. Branches, twigs, pine cones and holes are also common timber piles. Forest road with no traffic, just me, the [...]

Headwind, Göta Canal and chilled friends

Before I continue towards Mariestad I call Hakan and Birgitta and says I'm on my way. Finds out that they are significantly colds and [...]

My first goal, Karlstad is reached

Everything worked as it should, except that I lost the kickstand to my bicycle (Bike Stand). I have tried to choose roads with little traffic for three reasons, safety, surroundings and silence. If You have time leave the mainroads and look for roads through countryside. Lots of small village with curious people and nice environments to fix your gaze at. Four young horses with inquisitive mind Best road so far is between Edsbyn and [...]
