New year's in central #Athens
Definitely up there with some of the shitest places I've stayed. Was freezing outside and only hope of a good night's sleep was to squat this horrid building. I plugged all the gaps with old curtains and shivered myself to sleep on the floor. The result of travelling light and a sleeping bag better suited to a pyjama party.
30 Countries and 24,687km (15,340 mi.) by bicycle. I'm now spending my final months in Europe. A collection of countries I feel I know and I know I love. Full of memories and people I'll never forget. Some lines on a map could never do it justice. Thanks for following me along this journey. Here's to the untold adventures of 2017...Greece to Azerbaijan to Tajikistan to China 😁🚴 Be true to yourself and I hope you make your dreams reality ✌😊 #biketouring #worldbybike #bikewander #bikeramble #cycletouring #biketour #cycling #travelgram #instatravel #adventure #adventurenow #adventurecycling #europe #travelnow #traveleurope #eurotrip #cycletrip #biketrip
Straightest road I've seen. Runs right between two small mountain ranges in the middle of Greece towards the city of Lamía at the end. Boring to cycle but nice to look at from up here 😊
Below freezing in an abandoned village in the Greek countryside. Decided to squat a house for the night. Burning wood from the broken ceiling of the house next door and supplementing the fire with a giant candle. Good times. But cold times.
Look who came by the hostel on their way to Athens! Anaís and Marine, the two girls I cycled with from Albania to Kosovo! 😁
I tried to get from the sea to the top of the highest mountain in Greece and back in one day only cycling and hiking. I got to 2,200m before I had to turn back...the top is 2,918m (9,573ft). The snow was too deep and you need crampons to cross the ice but hey, I almost did it. It would be a nice challenge in summer as now I know it's totally possible. Doesn't look bad in the picture but it was already -3 at that altitude and the only reason I wasn't freezing with my summer clothes was because I kept moving all day! (And probably the beard too) 😊❄☃
Snowy mountain roads in northern Greece. The snow plough has been out and there's ice on the road. Greece isn't all sunny islands! #snow #greece🇬🇷 #baltic
Who knew, snow makes a pretty good bike stand ☃😁 #mountolympus #pannierfree #snow #litochoro #greece #whereiride
