My dad wrote a 2 side long article about my trip in the new number of VISKA! I feel honoured and so damn happy for that ❤️
The article is in Swedish and you will find the link in bio.
Have a look 👀

As I start to go through all the pictures I realise that Norway was a life time ago. In the very north, there the trip through Europe all the way to Morocco started.
It's like a travel in time. And Norway, I now remember, you are damn beautiful 🙌🏽

New Year's Eve 2017 was spent on a camp site with a small group of lovely people. Everything started in this cozy chill-out tent and escalated when special food and drinks was served. Good times with music, dance, company, Berber drums and lots of Berber and Catalonian language. The party however ended up in a hotel, that pretty much made me feel I was invited to Jasmines palace ❤️

Thinking back to one of those absolutely stunning camp sites in Morocco, in the rocky desert, surrounded by the funny shaped mountains.
When the soul is in total harmony and peace 🙏🏽

It's definitely not summer anymore, it's freezing cold and my bike is lighter then I'm use to. But every bike ride gives me joy for the moment, and the ride to work is way to short to satisfy me. My heart is still in Morocco but the cold forces me to pedal to keep the warmth still inside.
Big city lights and half moon was the view for tonight, but I surely miss the times when I couldn't keep my eyes open after 10 in the evening ❤️

Some sort of a slow new beginning is happening after a life on a bicycle for 7 months. More of that in today's new blog post. Link in bio!! 😍

And finally the route from Morocco (pic 2), where the +1 country of this journey gave me some extra journeys in the journey. Blue: bike, yellow: bus and red: road trip with Van.
On picture one you see the whole journey!

For many people it's hard to believe why you would ride your bicycle across countries. But for me it's even more strange to ride my bike through the town where I grew up, after just crossing 9 countries with the same bike. This picture is taken by the pond where I always fed the ducks in my early days. And to see my bike in that surrounding, that is strange, cause that wouldn't have happened if I didn't first cycled through 9 countries.
Yesterday and today's very special welcoming home was lovely, thanks to all of you who waited for me and thanks to my family for an epic "dinner come together" ❤️
I now believe that'll have approx 80kms left of this trip, but before that last stretch home, to my actual home some family-time is on the agenda! ❤️

I'm getting closer and closer, and tomorrow at 11:30 I'm rolling in to the shopping mall in Varberg, I hope to meet you there! For more info, link in bio!

Joy, never ending smile, lots of pedalling and beautiful cycling in the dark, that is the words describing my day. Still smiling while falling asleep.
Thank you all for pep talk and endless support, you are amazing! ❤️

Good morning Copenhagen!
The air is different as well as the temperature, but I'm stoked to finish this last stretch up to Gothenburg 🙌🏽

One of my followers Hans has been organising a "welcome home" event for me. That is for you a lovely opportunity to ask questions or just have a peak at Bike. There will be a little interview, and other goodies, that will take place in the shopping mall of Varberg (Sweden). I would love to see you there on Saturday 😀 are you in? Link in bio for more info.

So Sweden, here I come!

Some insensitive last days in Morocco is now over. Bike is wrapped up (finally after 2h). I will now close my eyes and pretend that I am flying my Moroccan handmade carpet to Copenhagen, in my opinion a more romantic picture of returning home after almost 7 months on a bike across 9 countries.
Let's see what's waiting on the other side! 🙏🏽🙌🏽

Just another camp spot ❤️ I'm so happy for all your name suggestions for my cycle-monkey-friend, insanely good and it was also very funny to go through them! I forgot to give you an expiring time, but as you noticed I'm leaving Morocco soon, so I had to decide quickly.
The winner is Abu, after Aladdin's 🐒. Which is also a name that describes Morocco very well from my point of view!
Thank you all for super cute names!! 😘😘😘

I never did this, and I have no idea how many of you reads the this text at al, but I will give it a try! -
It's time for me to introduce you to my monkey friend. And I need your help 🙏🏽.
Background story: When I cycled through Denmark my sister got her second baby. As you understand, I haven't met this little boy named Imre yet. I bough him a monkey who has now cycled with me through the last 8 countries. In just a couple of days this monkey will meet his real owner, BUT, he has no name. I would love this little monkey to have a sweet on-the-road name, but I'm pretty bad at coming up with names. So please, if you are a bad-ass-name-giver, please name him and I promise to send you a sweet postcard from Morocco (who ever gives the best name)

Hope to hear from you! ❤️

Desert in my heart, now and forever. This endless land of nothing makes you find everything.

We are all very good at focusing on bad things in life, but life can be so easy.
It's hard to say it, but I'm pretty jealous of my life right now, and I'm just gonna keep on living it, I wish you the same happiness ❤️

Campsites ❤️⛺️🔥
You might see my tent in front of the white car, if not, just enjoy the view!

I made it to a point where I just enjoy, my bike is enjoying a rest, so do I, and I miss the desert. So that's where we're heading back to for a couple of days 😍

Stars have never been brighter and mountains have never been more beautiful. But nothing is like the endless quiet desert 🌵

This is the planet I'm talking about that I'm leaving soon ❤️

5💬

The Atlas Mountains is insane, I wish I had time to visit them all.
I have a few days left until I have to leave this beautiful planet, and I'm enjoying it to the maximum ❤️

At this very moment I'm sitting on the top of this mountain, only camera I'm carrying with me is my iPhone. The rest of my gear and house is in the little village below at a family's house. And only place I found a bit of internet connection was here, on the top of this mountain, somewhere in the Atlas Mountains 😍

Yesterday I helped a family out by carrying a message from the son, standing at the road with a broken car, to find his dad in the next village. The result was that I got invited to their family with open arms. The car is okay and the son got the cold. And I'm sitting on the top of a mountain. Life brings unexpected moments ❤️

I've been in a rocky-desert-sandstorm before, for sure. But never with Bike. Yesterday's sandstorm and headwind made me do 40 very slow kms before a German couple picked me up in their massive and supercool Mercedes truck, but that's a totally different story, maybe for another time.

I wanna give a shout-out to the turban! Not only is it practically useful in sandstorms and sunshine, it's also freakin beautiful. But that's not all... for all of you solo travelling women out there that constantly get called at, smiled at, touched and also getting the "are you married" question 10 times a day. The turban will absolutely help you to get a peaceful ride through the next town, cause no one except it to be a women underneath.

The boy in the second picture is Jamél, he pushed the storm with me for about 5kms, we had fruit break about half way through. He also needed a turban, and luckily I had a spare one that I gave to him.
-
Latest information I got from the German couple is that I'll probably catch a snow storm on my next mountain pass. Let's see what awaits me 🔥❄️

And how beautiful isn't these Berber guys. This is Youssif and Mohamed than I passed by on the road, I cycled for 2 km until I realised that I will regret not having a picture of them. Usually I hate to cycle back, but some kms are just worth it ❤️

12💬

The nature is splendid, the sun is hot, the people is beautiful.
So much is happening during one day of cycling here, and I'll definitely thank the locals for that's fall the cute dromedaries ❤️

Just a little glimpse from my life at this moment, I ❤️ the nothingness!

Africa has an special impact on me, every time it changes me a bit.
I'm in total harmony ❤️

I made some choices lately that I will never regret. The latest one was to reach the dunes before sunset ❤️

New Years couldn't be better, the beauty of having zero expectations and the result end up being the best New Years I ever had. Today my mouth is dry as a desert.
And what I'm doing right in this moment, is chilling and enjoying the best life ever! ❤️

New year in Sahara, can't be better ❤️
