  • Our status


  • Description

    We are two Belgian guys on a bicycle trip around the world.
    Our motivation lies in the sustainable way of travel, the freedom of being outside on our bikes, the use of our strength and muscle power, the health aspect and the slower pace of travel.
    We are happy when we can get to know new people, can learn new skills, can experience new ways of life and can develop our minds, hearts and bodies. Growing as human beings, brings us immense happiness.
    We are looking forward to get to know you, to work together and to share some beautiful time together.
