I decided upon much deliberation, to start a web log regarding my upcoming solo travel trough Europe by bicycle. When I outlay my plans to people, almost everyone I meet save a few close family members....
1. Have said outright they think I am nuts
2. Asked why I don't just buy a motorbike or scooter
3. Misunderstood and had to be told again. (eg: You're goiong to hire a bike in Amsterdam?)
The purpose of this site is both to keep track of my "planning the trip" process, and to convince the skeptics that the bicycle is indeed the superior form of travel when one wants to see the true culture and sights of the country they are travelling through.
Hope it keeps you interested!
