If I didn’t have to work for money,
I’d become an arts or beauty admirer…

For the last couple of days non-twowheeled things were efficiently occupying my time and I’m afraid it will stay like that for a while. Nonetheless I’ve stumbled upon an interesting article by Dylan Kentch about his journey from Seattle to Patagonia which was fun to read. A couple of thoughts from the road and lessons learned:
Stop and ask for directions, and look at a map.
Start your big bike trip with all the tools you need to fix your bike.
Go on your own bike trip, not someone else’s. Just because you can sleep in the dirt every night doesn’t mean you always should.
Don’t believe the hype—the world is full of good people.
Long trips are more a mental than physical challenge. Take care of yourself because if you don’t no one else will.
A hot meal solves problems.
