Already before our trip, when looking around for which is the best fuel to use with our camping stove, we got quite confused. The reason being that the name used for the same fuel is even more varied than the different electrical plugs and necessary adapters for each country.
On the road it is not easy to find our super strong mix of cereals, nuts and grapes that we call muesli in Switzerland. Often there are only alternatives with too much sugar and few cereals. So we went down to make our own muesli mix. The simple ingredients were omnipresent both in Europe and South America. A box of oat grains, nuts, almonds, dried grapes and a mix of other seeds, put together in a ziploc bag, are the essential ingredients of our breakfast while cycling.
We spent a rest day on a nice campsite in Portugal, where the owners were raising chicken. The hens picked and ticked around our tent and bicycles all day looking happy (if a chicken knows what happiness is, that is).
As some of you may know, we were already passionate about making our own bread. Back home, we hadn’t bought bread in a store for probably two years! We also had our sourdough, about 3 or 4 years old, who had become sturdy enough to survive even our 3-week holidays in the fridge. So we thought it would be a pity to throw it away, and it became the travelling sourdough!
