What's it like to take off 6 months and ride your bike across Europe? What are the challenges, pitfalls, logistics and the stories that such a journey provide? Join me this week as my guest Keith Maurer recalls just such an adventure he took a few years ago.  We'll discuss:

  • Getting the travel bug through academic cultures class in Ireland
  • Biking in Upstate New York
  • Lake Champlain breakdown lesson
  • A trial run in the Adirondacks
  • Shipping the bike
  • Schengen Area for Visa free travel
  • Getting out of Calais
  • Exploring the United Kingdom and Ireland
  • So much to do in London
  • Feeling of lost experience due to language
  • Carrying food and shelter
  • Hostels (organized and independent) and the experience
