WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.

Today is Labor Day in Belgium and I suppose all over the world. This means we get a day off from work. Yay! This means I have some extra time to work on my website and other things. Or just to relax. As you see in the picture I tried to be a bit creative with resting. I won’t take that chair on my cycling trips though. I was looking at this travel chair and it looked really cool to have with us on a cycle trip. In our last trip I didn’t take any chair but when I see people with one it really looks comfortable after a whole day of cycling so for our next trip I might take one with me. So that I can even relax on labor day on cycle trips!
 
Since we are still in this lockdown I am trying to keep myself busy with researching, writing, online board gaming and trying to be creative with drawing mandalas, writing and building up my websites. And playing Age Of Empires II! I grew up with that game and it is fun to discover it again. I also still work (from home) so I still have a lot on my plate to do. The only thing I really start to miss is playing futsal. I would love to score some goals again.

Researching our new route.

In our first trip we didn’t plan our route so much. We felt that we missed some things because of that so now we will try to plan a little bit better. Since we might need to rethink our departure date we also might need to change our route. Our first plan was to cycle from Argentina too Alaska. Since we might need to postpone our trip it is possible that we will need to start in Alaska. Our route would be more or less the same but just reversed. The reason behind this is because of the seasons in those countries. In Argentina the best time to start is November.
