In the beginning we were pretty tired. because, like most new bikepackers, we didn't have anything in common with velo-sportsmen. we didn't go to gym and didn't run in the mornings. that is why we started from slow 30-40km per day, considering that we were pedaling from 8 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. the road was almost flat, and this was its problem. wind in the face and monotone fields just made it worth.
but, at least, being tired we could fall asleep at 8pm, after the most tasty dinners in my life, even though we ate just pasta with tuna or rice with vegetables, and vice versa. and after a month, nothing hurt anymore – we got used.
when, for the first time, i got scared of the dog, barking and running to me from the roadside house, i turned my bicycle towards the highway and heard rodrigo screaming behind: «the truck!» i managed to hide from a passing-by lorry, but rodrigo looked at me very seriously and very firmly said:
«never do this again. it's better you get bitten by a dog, then hit by a truck»
like this i lost my fear of dogs, calmly slowing down every time they were chasing me on the road.
it took much more time to fight the fear of people....

so i have been writing for a while and creating a blog because my story must be told but i have been too chicken to make it live. every time i think it’s good to go my perfectionism slaps me and says that it looks like s**t and i tweak and tweak and tweak and tweak and it’s still not good enough so i decided that friday 25th november i am going to just take the leap and launch it no matter what and hope that somehow i can swallow the nerves that have kept me from sharing my story and my hustle through life. #nervous#itsnowornever#freakingthefuckout
