"Discoveries are everywhere..." jverstri's Profile

... and you cannot buy them.

Genuine, rewarding travel experiences come to me when I get around on my own strength. This way, I try not do not disturb too much the places visited, and I still feel like a real traveller. Physical effort combined with mental relief.
I particularly like travelling on bicycle - to me it is an ideal way of travelling around. My personal views on that in another chapter. Also public transport is a very important source of getting into contact other people. And take your time... To do lists, must see's,... - just add up to the stress to do everything as efficient as possible. My best memories were never planned - and as they are unique to everybody else, I have no recipe for the best vacation. But I hope my thoughts, tips, ... contribute in a modest way to my fellow travellers - as I hope also to find some interesting stories, people, tips,... here.
