The big departure

Version française disponible ici.


Here it is…

After speaking about it over a year, every single month, weeks and days, we are today at Brussels airport – ready for boarding!

It’s like a dream becoming true, but it’s still very hard to believe. We have our backpacks with us, waiting with patience in the boarding area, on the screen it’s written “Bogota, Colombia”. So, it’s seems true today!

 

What are we expecting on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean?

No idea! We haven’t done that much of researches about places to visit, landscapes to see… as we prefer to keep the surprise!

100 Days… Really?

There are some important numbers while you’re preparing a travel around the world.

The first important step was our engagement at 100% in this project. Then, it was the first 100 euros spent ; the first time we went over 100km/h with our sidecars. Today, we are 100 days prior our flight for this travel around the world – a symbolic date!

Since over a year, we are organising this project together. We went through moments of doubts. But, step by step we are developing our project, proving our motivation. We want to prove to some people, and above all to ourselves that this dream will become true.

Two Urals for 2018

And 2018 started with the purchase of two racing cars.

A round-the-world trip… but how? 

This is the first question asked by anyone who wants to travel: travelling, yes but with which means of transport? 4 people working on this project means 4 times more dreams, crazy thoughts and ideas of means of transport. We have imagined this trip with a backpack, van, motorcycle, bicycle, hitchhiking and even an electric car! Each one of us bringing the best arguments to stand up for our own ideas. It was not easy to make a decision which will make everyone happy.

So, how did you make this decision? 

What’s this idea? A travel around the world, really??

Here it is, we are taking part in a trend:
‘Travelling around the world’!

Following like sheep? Certainly not!

For this kind of adventure, we need to be prepared! Prepared to have tough days, to spend hours without knowing where we are and where to go, not being able to communicate with people we meet, not knowing where we will sleep, missing the comfort of a warm shower to wake you up… Of course, we will also have amazing days, we will meet great people and enjoy breathtaking views. This is what we hope to experience by travelling!

How did you make the decision to travel around the world?
