We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect. — Anaïs Nin I enjoyed telling the story of our bicycle journey (cycling from Los Angeles to New York City on road bicycles) and sharing the photographs I had captured along the way very much; and I was looking for a way to save my memories of this epic adventure for my whole life (especially because I had to realize that I have forgotten the details of our last cycling days already…). — Therefore I…Continue Reading “I Wrote A Book”

„It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them“ – Ernest Hemingway Following Hemingways advice my brother and I came up with the idea to get to know our mother country Germany better back in 2012 – so what could possibly be better to grab our road bicycles and get rolling?
