A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and this step is done now. I have packed my things and now, I’m on my way.

I spent half of the night trying to optimize my equipment, as there was not enough space. Nevertheless, the BMW was close to being overloaded at the end. Good enough for the first stage, but I’ll have to review all of my stuff and leave some things here to get some more free space and less weight.

After a rainy morning, I was ready to go at 12:02 with a mileage of 12,220 km. Sunshine and 10 ° C – not to bad for this winter called May.
