Squat Advisor, our European highlight


Squat Advisor, it’s a new concept. If you want to get off the beaten track, go for a night in a sheltered place where no one else sets foot, don’t look any further. We’ve got the perfect squat for you.

Squat Advisor

Long-term wild camping enthusiasts, recently we’ve discovered the art of squatting. In certain special conditions, when using your tent is impossible (urban areas, once in a decade storms, absence of flat terrain…) squatting is the solution. To do so, you still need to find the perfect place.

What is Squat Advisor?

Did you know?

Being surprised each day is one of the reasons we love travelling. Discovering new landscapes, hearing different languages, confronting ourselves with other customs. In short, getting surprised by novelties, seeing them as bizarre before finally get used to them and finding them normal.  Accustomation. After five months on the road, let us tell you what has astonished us the most so far.

Cres, Krk, Rab, Pag, Hvar

This could be a list of random acronyms, it’s not. These are the Croatian islands we’ve travelled over in the past few weeks.

Philosophical moments #2. Being late

Travelling, or the art of being late.

Travelling

Going fast, it’s shortest path to go far. It’s also probably the best way to not enjoy the trip. Winter reminded us of a forgotten lesson. We can plan everything, except the passing of time. Since planning is not our thing, time flew faster than expected. No danger, we’re late but still going in the right direction.

 

Thank you Christine for this poetic welcome.

A sunny december

OspDecember 12. Osp. A little village in stone nestled underneath a gigantic rocky cirque. The paradise of Slovenian climbing. The perfect wild camping spot; the crag a 10-minute walk away under cloudless skies, friendly temperatures and a six kilometre cycle to replenish the water and food. ShoppingEverything came together, we put our difficult winter behind us and finally used our eight kilos of climbing gear that had lain dormant in the depths of the panniers. We’d stay for ten days. Meanwhile, a third adventurer had the time to consolidate his equipment, pack his bike and find a flight to Venice, joining us on the 21st of December. From there, Sylvain took a train for Trieste whilst we climbed the hill separating Italy from Slovenia to greet him. Three on the road. With our need for the open road coming back strong accompanying the better than usual weather, we head for the Istrian Peninsula. Piran, the Slovenian Venice, calls us. An unseasonably zealous security guard dislodges us from our beach bivouac at 2300.

Philosophical Moments #1. Small Bike

Small Bike on the road of a big adventure.

small bikeTo see things in grand context, there’s nothing better than feeling small.
To point the eyes upwards.
Being aware of the vastness around us.
As lying on the floor to take pictures reveals a new perspective,
With Small Bike it’s never far away.
Thank you Duch for this gift.
