    WT Day #1.000 (UK)

    Sitting here in an internet cafe in Alausi (2.350 mas), a Central Ecuadorian village, on the second day of the new year, it fills me with joy and proudness to look at the WT “day count”. It now takes 4 digits to keep track of my worldly escapades.

    Since I’m actually 5 hours behind GMT and 6 hours behind my fellow countrymen in Denmark (it’s 8PM here + the WT day count is on GMT or DK time), I’m still not done with day #999, but waking up tomorrow morning in my hotel bed will most likely feel like some birthday celebration for me. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 1.000 days since I parted Denmark and left (almost) everything behind.

    For a “statistically inclined” person (yes, it’s called fetishism) like me, hitting a thousand days on the road non-stop is quite a special moment. However, I can assure whoever(myself, most of all) that this will be the first and only WT-millenium the world will ever see. 2010 (and probably the first half of the year) continues to be my YOA (Year of Arrival) in Denmark.

    Wish me a happy millennium! 🙂


    …I don’t believe in millenarianism, BTW.

    On this day..

      Congratulations on reaching Day 1000! I’m glad I found you (through Vimeo) in time to catch your last year on the road. What an amazing journey so far. Thanks for sharing it with everyone who can only dream of such an experience. Your photos bring the world into my living room much better than the tv news. Best wishes for 1001 and onward!

      Hi Nicolai,

      This is Eliana, a Colombian-Ecuadorian who moved to Denmark. My Danish boyfriend and I were living in Quito until last year, we just arrived about two weeks ago here in Copenhagen.

      I am very excited to see the pictures of Latin America, not only because I can see again all the beautiful landscapes again, but also because my brother is also into mountain biking, so you reminded me of him and his desire to travel on bike from Ecuador to Argentina.

      Keep going, congratulations, thanks for sharing all your trip with us.

      Hi Eliana…

      Thank you very much for your kind entry. Keeping the site uptodate really makes it all worth it knowing that people out there, like you!, are following the adventure and are dreaming along.

      Abrazos de Cali, Colombia.
