The Bicycle Traveler Quest – How Life Unfolds …
Happiness is achieved by persistent patience!
Anyone who goes far, the world looks different from what it really seems. And if at home evoking by the word, they say, he is telling lies.
Only this believes the people dulled herd, which gropes, which shows the eyes. Inexperience, that has stayed at home, won’t give this story little faith.
H. Hesse: Journey to the East
Bicycle Touring as one of the most Earth-friendly way for exploring the world and getting to know yourself. It can not be compared to any other mode of travel. Since bicycle traveler must be actively present all the time, the real life continuously happens in front of his eyes. With touring bicycle under his feet, the world is sliding past him in all its diversity. And that flexibility is the most important thing for a self-supported bicycle traveler on the road. His journey can be anything he chooses.
IT ALL STARTS WITH A DREAM
Since that period, when the idea of Journey Around the World was born, decades have passed. Torn between great expectations and apathy this man lived his everyday life in envy, to those who dare to live their dreams. Often, there was a fear in his mind about the greatness of this plan. Most of his thoughts and skills were focusing on finding ways and means to realize that goal. Gradually reaching a point of no return, which only the highest force can stop him from realizing it. And, the man was thinking: Is this a common life dream of the ordinary man? What kind of life is that? Being afraid of living his own dreams, while following or stalking the stories of others.
THE REAL WORLD FOR EVERYBODY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Man’s early expectation was a part of New Age philosophy, that realization of his quest will be inspired and encourage by some kind of a Deity – but this, unfortunately, never really happened. He gave up thinking on saving some part of the World’s Ecosystem, just by traveling with the most ecological transportation. Therefore the man’s effort was, to rise and encourage himself away, from being just one of average time and space consumers. Perhaps that was a reasonable goal. While following many others opinion, his mind was pursuing for answer to that impossible question about the meaning or no-meaning of his life. What was given to him and what never meant to be. Therefore, it seems like his quest was only a mind fixation…
* The Quest – A search or pursuit made in order to find or obtain something
WHAT MAKES US A HAPPY PERSON
Still this man had high expectations, that his goal will remain a humble role model to family relatives as well as his friends around the world, who follow him. But first of all, this man just want’s to stroll and scroll around our beautiful planet with his Touring Bicycle. To make a visit to certain dream destinations, get to know people and above all, do exactly what was his long lasting dream. The great allegory of life, as constant change, which is more important then the goal, is implemented here literally. The human life is unique and should be very precious to everyone. Since it’s short, let’s allow this life to completely embrace us! Simply enough?
DREAMS THAT SHOULD BE PURSUED
Nowadays, his expectations are only to enjoy the ride as long as there is motivation and then stop, rest, eat, write, meditate or be invited by the locals. Sometimes he will be lonely and longing for a warm contact with the people. Every day at dusk, he will lay down to rest, sleep well and with a smile on his face wake up in the new sunlit day, hopefully never in a hurry. And if he spontaneously change his plans for the future, Bicycle Touring can be felt like the closest thing to freedom, that he will ever experience. Finally, a firm belief has been born: all the time, of the rest of his life is still available to him in abundance, to carry out the most important thing in human life – not to dream his life, but to live his dream. The life of a man is now more defined, since he has a goal and this goal is his journey.
