A blog then

Yes, having met travelers from around the world and reading their stories online I've decided to start up a blog of my own. As of yet I'm only a prospective traveler myself. I do however have a yearning to see the world, preferably from the saddle of my bike.

Most likely, this will start off as a diary / log of my training and other related and unrelated matters. Then in July I'm off to Germany on my first real, albeit shortish, bike tour. I'm hoping to be able to post regularly from the road as well. Exactly how that will work out has yet to be seen.

As for the heart portion of this blog, I have a congenital heart defect, the basics of which can be found through the links below. I am however one of the lucky ones, having survived in the first place and growing up to be strong enough to enjoy riding my bike, faster and longer than a lot of so called "healthy" people choose to do.
