Biography

Travelling has always been a hobby I've taken very serious,either through business or leisure. After a career in Heavy Equipment sales I had the misfortune to have a serious accident which put a stop to that. Now I just work and go on extensive cycling trips or quests whichever you prefer.This travelogue was written on the advise of many people who suggested just to apply my "derrière" to a chair and get started. To be honest I have no intention to make it my new profession. It is just too difficult.
