4 things I learned from going solo on my last adventure
In September last year I did something I never thought I would – a solo road trip with my bike around California. It wasn’t some long lost dream of mine to go travel by myself, nor was it a thoroughly planned trip. It was just one of those things that happened and, despite my doubts and fears, I ended up absolutely loving it. For 8 days I rented a car, packed my bike and myself into it, and drove. Through deserts and mountains, from 25-degree sunshine to below freezing and snow, from the ocean to the lakes discovering some amazing bike spots and people along the way. I can honestly say it was one of the best, most carefree and exhilarating weeks of my life. It blew all my doubts, biases and fears out the window and I learned more about myself than I probably will in a couple of years. Here are a few of the road-trip-life-lessons I picked up along the way.
