Africa Europe South America

World Cycling

An overview of all the places I cycled through, clustered by continent.

Counted nearly 50.000 kilometers in about 5 years, more or less continously solo pedaling through more than 40 countries. I started off in Africa, where I cycled first through Europe to get accustomed to the cycling lifestyle. When my bicycle broke down I went back to Europe to have the bicycle fixed and continued on, among other countries, via Iraq and Iran. The highlight and also the downfall of my cycling odyssey happened in South america.

West Africa

Africa, the first continent of my cycling trip after I crossed Europe. I started in Morocco, with the Sahara as an absolute highlight, on to Cameroon, where my bicycle broke down. Read on…

Middle East and Indian subcontinent

From Turkish, Iraqi and Iranian Kurdistan to UAE and all in between to reach India. Read on…


Criss cross around and through Europe, to go to Asia or to reach back home. Read on…

USA and South America

Cycling through South America was the odyssee of the 5-year cycling trip. On this continent I met my husband, where we did some motorbike rides together. Read on…

Years of traveling brought me many different insights, philosophies and countries I needed to be (over 90 in total). I lived in Pakistan, went over 15 times to India and when I stopped cycling the world, that was after 50.000 kilometer through 45 countries, I met Geo. Together we now try to be more self-sustainable, grow our own food and live off-grid. I now juggle with the logistics of being an old-fashioned housewife, cook and creative artist loving the outdoors. The pouches I create are for sale on

hell Cindy I hope your husband has recovered since we last chatted, and that you are loving Hungary , I hear great things about Hungary as being a great country, out of your collection the photo that stands out for me was the on of an afghanistan man selling potatoes on the side of the road with a white suit on .

Hi Oliver, great to hear from you because now I can thank you once again for the donations you are handing out to me. That’s so very generous and kind of you. Thank you 🌹😁

Yes, Geo has recovered from that Ileus. That was quite a thing 😬. Now he is just about fine again, he’d shaved off a big piece of thumb with a grinder.

Hungary is lovely. Not a great travel destination but lovely overall.

I find that man in white suit also great, because his suit is so clean (being it white is strange), it has even embroidery on it! He’s a vegetable seller, if I remember correctly. Afghanistan, was also quite something πŸ™ƒπŸ₯΄

Hope you are doing well, Oliver. Thank you again for your kind generosity and hope Brendan gave my regards to you πŸ˜‰

Greetings Cindy


Hi Miro,

When we came to Hungary, we were here just 3 days, Geo got very sick. It turned out to be Ileus. Do you know what this is? Thank God, he was operated immediately, brought by the downstairs neighbors collegues to the hospital (the neighbor is head of ambulances!) Geo is recovered, the shock was real and the scar big. Oh, what a shock it was! So thankful that he is well again.

Thank you Miro, for your concern. Hope you are well as well ; )

Well, that could very well be. He is always drinking too little. And the past year had been quite stressfull, so it could have to do with all these facts together. Although the chirurg said it can happen to anyone, at anytime…


Don't just stop here, I appreciate your thoughts too : )
