Last time I posted, I was thinking about going to the Yukon, even though I had to arrange a lot of things and quit my job and leave my apartment. The reactions were merely positive and if it were up to you, I should be there already. I researched the possibility a little further and it turned out to be a quite unfeasible plan. I have no trekking experience and would start on the most adventurous of travels. Also, I don't have any equipment, but the seven week travel through the Yukon would require me to purchase the very best materials. The fact that I just don't have the money or the contacts to make this trip possible, made me decide that I can't go at this point. It did make me realise that it's a really cool goal to work towards to in the coming year(s), and I will definitely go into the wild one day.
A new opportunity opened up when a friend told me about his plan to cycle to Spain. I was actually thinking about going to Italy, but now I could join him for the larger part of France and at some point turn left (probably at Valence). He continues southwest towards the pyrenees whereas I will cross the alps to eventually end up in Umbria. About 1900 kilometres of adventure.
Does anyone live near the route and wants to give two tired cyclists a place to sleep for one night? I would be incredibly grateful. :-) The route is more or less: Amsterdam - Maastricht - Nancy - Dijon - Lyon - Valence - Cuneo - Genova - Firenze

regalphis An oldie. Yesterday I had a really good conversation while cycling with a good friend. He's heading to the Yukon for seven weeks to experience the unspoiled nature and jaw-dropping vistas it has to offer. He's going with his brother and asked me to join him for the journey.
I am seriously considering joining him as I've got nothing to stay for anyway. Besides, this is exactly the kind of unforgettable adventure I've been hoping to find for quite some time.
Let's make a list:

I don't have a real job yet. I'm still working as a salesman in te decathlon, and even though I enjoy advising people about apparel and telling one of my semi-pro cycling stories to unexpected customers, it's not the most challenging of jobs. Last week I even won a prize for best looking isle of all the Decathlons in the Netherlands.

I do have some options open at traineeships. My old supervisor at Philips has been promoted to Marketing Director and is establishing contact with the traineeship coordinator. I have similar opportunities at pharmaceutical and medical technological firms, though not of them offers a solid entry into that particular firm as I don't have any contacts.

I can cancel my apartment at a one month's notice and already have another better apartment for december; one at which I am allowed to stay for an indefinite period of time with one of my closest friends. Besides, I can use the money I otherwise would pay my rent with to finance the tickets to the Yukon. And in the two months succeeding the trip, I'd be able to save up some money living at my parents' house. At the same time I could apply for a decent job, something I should be doing more intensively right now, but don't have the time and energy for when working almost full-time.
What do you think?

  •   fredvtn Of we gaan met de fiets door Europa. 4w
  •   regalphis @fredvtn dat lijkt me ook mooi natuurlijk :-) Sowieso een keer gaan fietsen! 4w
  •   annestolk Leuk!! Zeker doen! Haha en wat mooi van die prijs. 4w
  •   regalphis @annestolk Ha! Ja die prijs... Wel een waardebon van 50 euro gewonnen; die kan ik nu mooi gebruiken om goede gear te kopen. Maar t is nog wel even afwachten of t wel doorgaat. Melle moet het sowieso nog overleggen met zn broertje. En dan nog alles daar omheen regelen... Het lijkt me wel echt heel gaaf.. 4w
