YesTrip : about the route

This article is about what is more or less the general idea for the YesTrip route


In Turn the page 2 (introduction to the Trip) you can read all about the period from the moment I left the Netherlands in june 2017 until the moment I started the real YesTrip on my OnTheRoad 4.0 bicycle. YesTrip on 2 wheels started at the 22nd of june 2018 when I cycled out of Montpellier.

During the winterseason 2017 - 2018 I saw another great documentary at TV5 about the region of San Sebastian in Spain. I found it quite impressive and came to the idea to cycle in that direction to enjoy and decrouvrir France first and then explore the north of Spain. This fits also to the general idea of travelling to Africa.

So I decided to first cycle north-west to the most northern France - Spain border-passage. There I would enter Spain and determine the follow-up. Advantage is to travel with the sun. Disadvantage is having headwinds more often.

It was a nice trip and I planned to cycle criss-cross east-west through Spain and Portugal. And little by little I would travel south. But early november 2018 I knew I would not reach Portugal this year. Starting in september already the weather continously presented me very many stormy days, quite some rainy days and so ofcourse dropping temperatures.

This has caused me many days of delay (in hotelrooms ...) were I waited for a normal day to cycle again. There have been many weeks were I cycled only one day, the rest of the days the weather was just to bad ... I therefore decided to cycle more or less straight to the south of Spain to hopefully have better weather again.

And that didn't work either ... You can read all about that in the blogs, so I suggest you subscribe to the newsletter.

You can open the (very first) blog about France 1 here.

In the menu at the left you will find the listing of the countries I cycled. They ofcourse will show you the trips I did over there.

Finally you can have yourself surprised by opening a random blog.

Idea is was to later in the year 2018 follow the sun to the south, to cross the Mediterranean Sea and continue YesTrip in Morocco. But as written already I decided to stay a while near the Mediterranean Sea in Spain.

However, since I actually have no goal (and don't need and don't want one) all is possible and much will happen (and change). The only goal is actually to not have any (cold) winters anymore !
