Leon says: Nelson only cares for the most trivial little things, such as to have working brakes or to not starve on the way. He’s threatened my life far more often that he saved it, and since I’m still alive I figure he’s somewhat trustworthy.
Jorge says: The culprit of all this utter nonsense, the person who can dwell in the same proportion (and, what is worse, in the same length!) on the amount of food he is able to eat and the amount of women he would love to see, the epitome of crazy adventure, the supreme barefoot wanderer, the seeker of restless activity… Do you realize, dear reader, who is the one in charge of this web page?
Nelson says: Leon is an utterly careless person. If there’s anything you find important, he’ll find absurd to worry about it to a point of a terrible murder desire. An efficient German, at least when surrounded by Spaniards, he compensates his annoyance with his navigation skills and a nasty sense of humour.
Jorge says: A person who likes spaghetti ice creams, and who even justifies this aberration when questioned! I certainly have nothing else to add, every sensible being ought to see what does not deserve to be said. However, for the sake of nuance and the innocence presumption (after all, we are friends), we have to admit that he is the real brain behind the bike trip, the person with the millenarian maps of Europe and the navigation prowess, the calligraphy maestro and the ink and wax seals producer, le grand connoisseur… and the one who still likes spaghetti ice creams.
Nelson says: Jorge is a true old-times friend. He who was there with me when I claimed my first bike trip nonsense, now joins with a worse cycling background than I had, but he tormented me to no end about his enlistment. Now it’s all about pros and cons. A very well-educated humanist to guide, a very good friend to travel with, and an undoubtely strong will; but a tourist of the worst kind.
Leon says: I don’t know Jorge very well yet. Well, last time I went on a two-months bike trip that was with a guy with whom I’ve spent five days and exchanged a few postcards. Jorge is a profoundly educated and knowledgeable guy, which may complicate my job as a navigator: He might come up with own ideas which places to visit and relentlessly enforce them.
ABOUT THE BLOG
This blog saw its birth for several reasons. Leon just underwent too many voices pushing him to have one where he could write his saunters. Nelson is the guy from the future who dreamt of a digital project. Jorge simply wanted to write something new. Plus some other inputs, we finally came up with this output.
Last trip, when just superficially updating our social media about our adventures, a friend just mentioned that we should have a blog to keep up with the anecdotes. Leon just complained that such a project would steal the time to have something to write about. After a year of preparations and more inputs, we accepted the challenge.
In the mean time: where are we and what are we doing now?
