6000km by bike! Are we Crazy?!

Me and wifey will embark on our long awaited honeymoon biking through 11 countries across eastern and western Europe. The idea first came to me after a one day cycle  in Korea 12 months Prior. How did a cycle on a sunny Saturday afternoon in Seoul turn into a 6000km cycle across our own continent!? Ahhhhhhhhh I’m so lucky I have an obedient wife who agrees and embraces my crazy ideas and adventures! ( Well most of the time!!)

We booked into a hostel for a few nights before the trip started in a place where we stayed with both sets of families over our Wedding in Portugal. Suddenly this place, Cascais has a special place in our hearts, so it made perfect sense to leave from here and take on the first adventure as a married couple!

We’ll leave behind the home comforts and luxuries for freedom on the trip of a lifetime. We’ve got all equipment needed and probably more so. But I’m sure we’ll adapt along the way as time goes on!
