We have finished the trip

Posted by Asa on 13 April 2010

We arrived at our goal, Ushuaia, the end of the road and of the world, with mixed feelings. We felt happiness of having reached our goal and soon seeing friends and family again, sadness of leaving freedom on the bicycle behind.

Looking back at the travel it has been a wild mixture between wonderful encounters, great landscapes, environmental disasters, courageous and innovative people, roaring glaciers, lush forests, steep climbs and winding roads.

We have been surrounded by friendly and helpful people. We have been gliding around in the sun in some of the coldest and rainiest places on earth. We have hardly been sick and never stolen. We have been lucky maybe but mainly I believe this is the standard when choosing a life on the bicycle. The life can not be easier then when the biggest thing you have to worry about is a broken tire and when every day is filled by exercise, excitement and new encounters.

It has been a great trip!
