7 Days of Biking – The Couchsurfing Part

While planning our trip we saw that for the first part we would pass through some sparsely populated areas of Germany and never end our day in a town, so camping would have to be it. That changed for the second stretch of the trip, so we figured we might try sleeping indoors again and turned to couchsurfing – and it was great.

London was impressive and beautiful and diverse… and honestly: far too expensive. But let me walk you through the experience.

Happy New Year!

The new year is ten days old already (when did that happen??), but it’s not to late to wish you a happy new year, lots of love and peace and many wonderful encounters and experiences.
Last year, I spent new year’s eve in Taiwan, looking at the Taipei 101 fireworks and cracking up about the photographer who felled a small tree with a machete (!) to get the perfect picture.

Which may or may not have looked something like this:
