Why have a blog centered on me and my experiences? Simply because I believe in sharing my joy in discovering new places and people all over the world. I retired in May of 2019 and plan on making the most of my spare time. My first epic trip was a 79 day trip from Athens in Greece to Brussels in Belgium. Originally, I wanted to finish in Amsterdam after looking at the prices of accommodations from Utrecht in the Netherlands, only 60 kilometers from my final destination I choose turn around and to ride a few extra days to return home in Montréal from Brussels.
My passion for cycling started a very long time ago but increased exponentially after participating in 5 or 6 Grand Tours , a yearly week long bike expedition organized with brio by Vélo Québec where up to 2,000 cyclist visit a different regions of Quebec with occasional sorties in the US and Ontario. I also cycled in the south of France, Hawaii and the US west coast. In 2018 I made a trip from Budapest to Prague and I have done a bit of cycling in Cuba and Guadeloupe. I have trouble staying in the same place for too long and do not mind being alone! I believe there is no better way to travel than by bicycle except may walking but my knees would hurt too much and it’s much faster to ride a bicycle.
If you are curious, you can follow me on my trips and see the pictures I have taken whenever I thought I should freeze moments to compensate for my failing memory.
