Cycling from Switzerland to Japan

Donation protected
In 2019, I felt out of place in the busy world of finance. While dealing with clients and numbers, I realized there was a whole world out there to explore. I made a bold decision to go on a big adventure, traveling across borders and continents.

For three years, I got ready mentally. I started saying goodbye to things – my stuff, family, friends, my cozy apartment, and my financial job. What's surprising is, I never owned a bicycle before, but it became my ride for this amazing journey.

In every country I visited, I practiced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and met awesome people who welcomed me. The journey had ups and downs, but I always knew giving up wasn't an option. The biggest lesson was discovering that real happiness comes from inside.

In India, something big happened. I had a bad accident, but luckily, I only got a concussion and some bruises. My bike, Spirit, got wrecked, but that didn't stop me because adventures come with challenges.

After 13 months, 10,000 kilometers, and exploring 20 countries, I reached Thailand in late August. Now, I'm taking a break before continuing my journey to Japan in spring 2024. Each part of this adventure has been full of challenges, happy moments, and meeting unforgettable people.

I'm super thankful for all the support on this journey. This adventure isn't just mine; it's a story shared by the many people who travel with me and inspire me. Looking forward to the next chapters on the unknown roads ahead!
