De foto's zijn adembenemend en de teksten inspirerend. Ik kan niet anders zeggen dat het een van de mooiste fiets boeken is die ik gelezen heb.

One Year on a Bike: From Amsterdam to Singapore

I pitch my tent, build a fire, and the rest of the evening I'm busy maintaining it. Light and warmth are basic necessities to work for. Life can be so simple. In Europa loopt zijn reis bijna dood door een meisje. Liefde doet vreemde dingen met je. In Turkije en Iran is het thema veel gastvrijheid. India is een grote chaos. Saying goodbye was not easy.

I've learned the hard way that a nomadic style of living is as much about connecting as it is about letting go. Vandaar dat er ook zoveel jaloersmakende foto's in het boek staan.

Day 2: Have fun under the sun

De teksten zijn kort maar herkenbaar. Mijn langste fietsreis was maar vijf weken maar toch zijn de situaties en gedachten hetzelfde. Hij weet heel goed de essentie van een fietsreis te beschrijven en wat het met je doet.

Day 2: Have fun under the sun

De vermoeidheid en de tegenslagen die essentieel zijn voor je reis en elke keer weer als een overwinning voelen. Het 'gevoel' van een land, de vriendelijkheid van de mensen en de dingen die een land anders maken dan het onze terwijl je dat, normaal gesproken, niet beseft. Setting small goals and not getting frightened by the size of this country. Living by the day and taking it in piece by piece.

One Year on a Bike: From Amsterdam to Singapore by Martijn Doolaard

It was the only way to make this kind of trip doable. Maar ook voor een aspirant- of niet-fietser zal het heel interessant en inspirerend zijn om te lezen. En zelfs als je niet van fietsen houdt kun je niet anders dan genieten van de foto's. Had ik al gezegd dat die mooi zijn? The discoveries are what makes the unknown so exciting and the reason for taking the unbeaten paths more worthwhile.

Even more reason to go to places that are not recommended-you could be the first one to do so. Jan 19, Diana rated it it was amazing.

  • Life in Chinatown Past?
  • Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology.

It's less about cycling, more about the people, cultures. As a one year tour, it's not overly complicated or too dense, it's just the right length for such a book. I discovered that my little daughter also likes to open this book and look at the pictures.
