The world has become smaller they say, because of jet planes, internet and other modern technology.

But this is not true. The world is as big, manifold and fascinating as ever. But to see its size, you need to have time and move on the ground.

With the bicycle I have the opportunity to see the little things along the road as well as to meet the people in the villages. On the other side I am exposed to tropical storms and stone throwing kids. On a cycle tour I barely spend the night, where it is most beautiful, but where I am tired. So, I don't only get to see the most beautiful sides of a country, but also the less beautiful and everyday life.

In january 2005 I set off from Switzerland, to fulfill my dream: to get to know the size of this world, meet its people and to reach Mt Kailash!
