Special Video: Lessons Learned From 9 Months Of European Bike Travel

SPECIAL VIDEO REPORT: The Last Day Of My 9 Month European Bike Tour

For the past 254 days I’ve been traveling with my bike through Europe. I flew into Switzerland on December 31, 2008 and I’ll fly home tomorrow (September 10, 2009) from Athens, Greece.

It’s impossible to sum up nearly 9 months of travel and 16 different countries in just a few minutes, but I wanted to take a moment and share with you some of my thoughts on the way I’ve been traveling this year and the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

In the video below I discuss:

  • How a negative situation turned into a positive one (and I was able to extend my travels by an extra 4 months)
  • What I think about traveling in the winter versus traveling in the summer (Which one is better?)
  • How I traveled on this trip and why it was unlike any of my previous travels
  • What I would do differently if I could do this trip all over again
  • The REAL reason I’m returning to the United States (No, I didn’t run out of money.)
  • Plus, my plans for the future of Bicycle Touring Pro

To hear me sum up my 9th and longest bicycle tour to date, just click play on the video below:

    Hey Darren,
    I have about 2 months left on an 8 month bike tour, and a lot of the things you said about the length of your travel resonated with me. I feel ready to return, even though I am having such a great time and feel like I could go on forever. I also want to take this experience and branch it out to other things, like maybe a big ride for charity in my state–Nevada. Looking forward to the future of BTP, and welcome home.
