Day 2200: The End of the Road

Posted by Thomas Andersen Posted on Oct - 10 - 2016

I’m not sure if I really understood it myself yet, but I’m back home in Copenhagen!

58.201 km, 2200 days, and 58 countries since I left… but those are only numbers. What’s really important is the memories; the fascinating places I saw, and the amazing people I met. Trust me, the world is generally a good place πŸ™‚

At the same time it feels right to be back among friends and loved ones again. Such were my thoughts as I cycled into the Copenhagen City Hall Square – the very same place where it all started back in 2010.

Friends, family, and followers – thanks for joining the virtual ride and and thanks for all the moral support. It was a true pleasure having you on board!

Oh, and don’t worry too much – this channel will not go silent. As you might have noticed I only made it to Kenya in my diary. I will spend the next month updating the blog so that I will make it through the rest of Africa and Europe back to Copenhagen in the virtual world as well. Stay tuned…

    Hey Thomas,
    We met in Kigali,Rwanda just after you made the 50.000km. I was working there to find sport related projects with my colleague. I stopped my work and listened to your stories – really enjoyed it. Just thought about that night today and remembered your website. Glad that you made it home before winter πŸ™‚

    All the best from Germany!

    Thomas it has truly been a pleasure following your progress post by post all this time. Your journey has been amazing and inspiring. I hope you get some well deserved rest and relaxation! Can’t wait to see how some time off will allow you to reflect on the last 6 years. Thank you for all the effort in keeping those of us who have been following you updated. Hope to hear more about the final leg soon! Congrats again!

  9. Again, what a joy and honour it’s been to follow your trip. As you know, I was a late comer, but it’s been entertaining and inspiring at the same time!

    Congratulations on your adventure. I have enjoyed following you every step of the way. Especially enjoyed having you visit my home along the way.

    Please think of cycling to Japan via Russia (or something). I want to read and see more of your great descriptions and photos!

  14. Hi Randy! The pleasure is all mine – thanks for following along from Day 1, and I’m truly happy that we could meet (and celebrate 41000 km) in Uxbridge, MA! Hope you and your family are doing well there. Greetings from Qatar – I will be at A73A for WW SSB! Thomas
