When I left Copenhagen 677 days ago I had a rough idea that a time frame of about 2 years for cycling around the world would be appropriate. It turned out not to be so. The world is a beautiful place and the bicycle has turned out to be a fantastic way of experiencing the world.
Almost 2 years of the WT-expedition has gone, 27.000 km through 21 countries, and here I am, in Eastern Australia on the other side of the Globe, about half way through the journey. Ahead of me is New Zealand, South America, Central America, and North America and then back to Europe by sea. Realistically, I reckon it’ll be another 2 years until I reach Danish turf again. Hence these words.
Thanks to the financial support that I’ve received from my sponsors until now the adventure has come this far. Getting this support has meant everything to me, and I’m extremely grateful and happy that other than myself believed in the journey right from the start.
The time frame of 2 years – that the original sponsorships were meant for – has gone, and despite my constant economical cautiousness and strictly disciplined low-budget way of living, I’ve realized that I need financial help for the next and last Stage 2 of the WT-journey, that will hopefully bring me back to Denmark in 2010.
In other words, I’m now looking for new sponsorships that will help bringing the journey to an end, back to Copenhagen, and before I start making the sponsorship applications I’m very interested in getting in touch with companies, clubs, individuals or otherwise that might be able to help me.
Don’t be shy. Any ideas or contacts are highly appreciated…
