THE ADVENTURE STARTS: FROM THE NETHERLANDS TO GREECE BY BIKE

We already are on the route of our adventure and we still don´t believe it.

The adventure starts: from The Netherlands to Greece by bike Click To Tweet

And although now everything looks very nice, to get here we had to go through difficult times as well.

In my case leave work, not to do this trip, but because I wanted a new direction to my life, both professional and personal facet.

So, at this point, why not take advantage of this inflection moment to take a few months off and be able to do all those things you can ever do for lack of time?

Luckily, Evert could also arrange it at work. As usual when it comes to the ends of the decisions, the stars start to be aligned and everything flows.

Once decisions are made, we knew we wanted to travel and had to find a plan and destination nice for the two of us. 

– One of my dreams was to go to Athens by bike from Utrecht. – Evert told me with a low voice-.

– Heyyy … it looks a good challenge !! – Although the option of cycling for me, knowing his rhythm and mine…it was not an option if we wanted to continue all the trip together :-)))

From this short conversation everything was smooth sailing. Of all travel options, this was the most convincing.

It was a challenge for both of us in many ways and his dream became mine in a flash.

He would go all the way by bike, and I, with the car and all the stuff :-). Hey, but I will also be very busy enjoying my hobbies: doing the social media, posts, photography, reading and writing, searching for accommodation… ufff!

Each one by their own, but meeting every day at a point of arrival.

The deal was also be stopping by countries across we’d go for sightseeing together. In this case the bike would be parked for a few days and re-take it at the same point to follow the route again.

EXPECTING TRAVEL PLAN

 

Countries:

Netherlands

Germany

Austria

Slovenia

Croatia

Bosnia

 Once we accomplish to arrive to Athens, then, we will take a rest of bike and we will continue our journey together by car, crossing from Greece to Italy and going up to take our way back to The Netherlands.

Distance:

Cycling more than 3000 km, although until the end we do not know exactly.

By car surely be many more, because as I said before, we will stop and will do excursions to visit many more attractions of each country.

Budget:

Honestly, we are the first ones very curious how we end up spending. Throwing long to have room, 100 eur per day for the two, taking into account housing, food and fuel. We will keep you informed.

Accommodation:

A bit of everything, for now we only have reserved the first night in Issum, a small village in Germany. Yeah yeah, first night we are in Germany!!

During the trip we will use from rooms, apartments, Airbnb, Booking and camping.

And this is our plan, I hope you enjoy it and accompany us on the journey!
