Thomas Andersen, Copenhagen, Denmark

Hi, my name is Thomas Andersen. In October 2010 I left Denmark by bicycle, not knowing what to expect. What followed was an epic journey.

I have cycled through Eastern Europe learning all about the local beer, I have been chased by dogs in Turkey. I have pedalled through Syria before the war. I have been a celebrity in Malaysia, and worked on a huge cattle station in Australia.

I spent the year of 2014 cycling through South America which looked like this!

In 2016 I flew to Cape Town and I'm now cycling home towards Denmark!

I hope you will enjoy your stay on this site. Come along by checking out the diary below, and also the feeds on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
