Why am I doing this?

The Why, Where and How of it ALL.

I was very sick & miserable for 2.5 years… blah blah blah… nobody cares.
In January 2017 I decided I needed to do *something* if I was to go on with my life instead of throwing myself into the Seine. I resolved to follow my heart and materialise my long-lived dream of visiting the United States of A. By bike. On my own. Moneyless.

I am now keeping this blog and collecting money for 3 charities that are dear to me in order to stay motivated and turn the nightmare of the past couple of years into something positive and bigger than me.

Wanna know more but in a hurry? Here's the gist:

Why – the longer answer:

1. For me: for after 2,5 years of being sick & miserable, I decided to do something that'd help me get better.

2. For the adventure: because I want to try an alternative, socially questionable way of living.

3. For the world: I want to change the reality I live in by promoting a female-empowering experience because they say that “if you can see it, you can be it” (yes, going off solo and moneyless does not equal instant death from the invisible hand of patriarchy).
