Wide Open Travel is about doing what fascinates me. It’s about being a multidimensional individual, and finding out what caliber of person I am. When I look at the map and see the dots that make up my starting point and my destination, all I can think about is the stimulating experiences I will encounter in between. Getting lost and finding new ways, breaking down and repairing, getting screwed and finding warm hospitality. Saying yes to leaping outside my comfort zone. Cause that’s where things get interesting. You overcome imaginary boundaries created by yourself. So I will eat sketchy food, get drunk, turn strangers into friends, hike mountains, and drive through vast deserts. All because I can. And because wanderlust is incurable.
They say if you feel comfortable, then you are not challenging yourself enough. So when I decided to make my next trip Australia, I felt I needed to step up my game in some way. To experience another form of adventure travel. Traveling on two wheels powered solely by my might is certainly an uncomfortable thought. So bicycling from Brisbane to Tasmania solo sounds like just the adventure I need.
