Janos and I will soon be on our way to Berlin, and from there our bike tour will start. With some trepidation. We are experienced bicycle tourers but we are getting older... need I say more?
A few things I want to keep in mind:
1. We are not competing with our former achievements.
2. Whenever we stop, be it after one day, one week or three, it will not be considered quitting, failure or giving up; it will simply mean we had enough.
3. If it's not enjoyable, it's not worth the effort.
4. At the age of 76 and 78 it's time to think about what is really important.
I'm hoping to blog and post pictures made with my smartphone while traveling. This post is a trial run.
PS The picture of the youthful cyclists in this post is not of Janos and me, in case you didn't guess.
