On the 24th of October 2016, we went to say goodbye to the waves on the Portuguese Atlantic coast in Azenhas do Mar.
We were already 4 months into our year off, had cycled from Switzerland to Portugal, cycled around a good deal in Portugal, spent time with our families. Summer was slowly, but surely turning its back on us. The birds were flying South. And so did we.
On this very day exactly one year ago, we were feverishly preparing our trip to South America. Getting our stuff together after about a month of a more sedentary life, wrapping up our bikes. This mixture of excitement and slight worry, before travelling to countries yet unknown to us.
One year later, we are looking back on the South American part of our trip.
Every week, we will go back into our diaries and remember some of what we did exactly one year ago.
And here’s what this means for you: Every week until February, we will share one day on the road on this blog: a picture, an anecdote, an encounter, a memory.
So, stick around – the first post is coming very soon.
