Cycling through Arlberg pass in winter


After finishing the weekend with Claus, I knew that on Monday it would be snowing.In one moment, I thought to leave on Tuesday but I received an email from Aleksandra a friend of mine in Imst that on Tuesday morning I had a school. So, Monday was the only time I had to leave. I have to be there on Monday evening.
There is no way because I had a school Tuesday morning in Landeck. But the problem was I had 110 or 120 kms to Roppen and it was quite impossible to do in one day in a snowy day and I had to go to over the path which was impossible to do it in one day.

I met Lukas in my friends house and after we talked a bit about my journey and my project, he kindly invited me to visit his class in OSZT ( Oberstufen zentrum tauffellen ) - Biel-Biene.
we fixed a date and on Thursday January 29 I went to visit his class and share some ideas and my experiences with his students.
we talked about some problems we have in our world and at last we planted a tree in a pot just to symbolize our work and to touch the soil.

Visiting Montessori school in Zurich and planting tree in a kinder garden in Wil


I came back to Montessori school to visit a class and also to thank them for their support.
When I visited the school first time in 2012, Mrs Rachelle Olson helped me a lot to reach more classes and about 10 months later she organized a book sale in the school. 
kids brought some second hand bok and some mothers backed some cookies or...for the market and afterward they sent me the money to support my journey and " we need trees" project. 
so it was nice to go back there and meet them again and thank them.
Also I had a chance to have another class and workshop with another group of kids

Getting back to Switzerland


After that quite very cold night that I had spent in the tent, in the morning I couldn’t leave quite early because all around of my tent was frozen. At the top of my sleeping bag, there was a layer of ice. It was like a frost.  So I had to wait for the sun to rise. Likely it was a sunny day to dry up my tent and clean all the ice. Fortunately in the next night, I didn’t need to stay outside and I had a friend in Ulm. I just left around 11 o’clock.  I arrived Ulm around 5 in the evening and directly cycled to my friend’s house. I had a warm place to stay. That night was quite nice after such very cold days.

Cycling through Germany - part 3


This is a Nomad number 3. I am recording this voice in Germany. I am in my tent now.  It is 7 o’clock in the morning. It is quite early because sun is going to rise about 8:15.

I want to tell about lase few days. What I’ve done in my journey.
The last week when I was in camping, I recorded my voice and the next day Ihad to cycle about 70kms to Nuremberg where I was going to meet Ushi and Hands. It was a very easy day. I didn’t have much wind. The road was quite flat and I was going to make it before afternoon. So I had pushed myself and in 4 hours I cycled 70kms. It was a very good for me for losing my weight.
