Heh, I've hosted a Warmshowers guy (is there any chance you know him?  :D Stephen S...) from Australia, who's lived in Holland for a couple of years, and was cycling to... no, not Australia ;) Just some Balkans countries. I guess he finished in Bosnia or sth...

Good luck on your trip! It's nice to hear, that you enjoyed visiting our country  ;)

Hey Waxmund. No. I don't know Stephen.. I will be going through the Balkans on this trip. I hope to visit a friend from Bosnia on the way..

Thanks for your best wishes!! :-)

Hello everyone,

I shared this already but now it is more relevant:



This is the clip I made after cycling the coast with a friend 2 years ago.
You will be able to see what kind of routes and surfaces to expect.
If I was to do it again, I would do it on bigger tyres. 1,6" was at times not enough!

Cheers
Daniel

Hi all,
After a really great trip through Poland last year on the way from Holland to the North Cape (http://arctic-cycler.com/biking/eindhoven-nordkapp-kirkenes-2013/), I am cycling this year from Holland to Australia (http://arctic-cycler.com/world-cycle-2014/).

I'll be meeting people. I will observe, and I will write. What are the sustainability issues people face across my path, and how do they deal with them? Who are the people? What are their stories? I will also support Green Pedals (http://www.facebook.com/greenpedalsforschools) to promote this dialogue, and use to realise sustainable infrastructure in selected schools on my route.

Take a look at my blog entry on Green Pedals: http://arctic-cycler.com/2014/08/18/green-pedals/

Holland to Australia, sounds great! But why not go a little farther, say... New Zealand? :) Not only is it a paradise on Earth, but also it's the farthest you can get from Holland - isn't it a perfect destination for a bike tour? :)

Anyway, good luck and enjoy your trip!

Hi Janus,
Thanks for your best wishes! Indeed, New Zealand is a beautiful country. Maybe I will cycle there too. The goal if this trip is to return to where I was born, which is Adelaide, Australia. Also a beautiful place.. :-)

All the best!!

I see, then Adelaide is better indeed!
But you can still make a short NZ detour on the way there :)

And visiting schools... not on your way but one never knows - I work at school in Ireland just give me a shout if you're by any chance passing us by. The rainy and foggy countries might be as interesting as the sunny ones (doesn't sound too convincing I'm afraid :)). You got my 'like' for Greenpedals, I admire your idea.

Hey. Thanks Hindiana. Unfortunately Ireland is not in my way. The weather there sounds a bit like Dutch weather. :-)
All the best from Holland!
