Lets go! From Uzhgorod to Lisbon by bicycle!

in introduceyourself •  2 months ago 

Two weeks before the start of my new journey - from western Ukrainian city of Uzhgorod to Lisbon and Cape Roka - the westernmost point of European continent.


My name is Oleksandr Bogachenko-Mishevskyi, and i'm a bicycle traveller. In 2017 I launched "Безвізова велоподорож" ("Travel without visa by bike") and cycled from Uzhgorod to Amsterdam. Last year I crossed Scandinavia - from Copenhagen to North Cape and Helsinki, also from Izmail (southern Ukraine) to Istanbul.


I'm travelling alone on ultra-small budget. Always sleeping in my camping tent, or using Warmshowers (couchsurfing for cyclists). Omnia mea mecum porto - "All that is mine I carry with me", it means a lot of luggage and my speed isn't high. But I'm enjoying it - with beautiful landscapes every morning.


I'm not succesfull in my daily life, so I'm happy when I receive some donations for my project. I run blogs also on Facebook - http://facebook.com/bikeuatoeu, Telegram - http://t.me/bikeua2eu and instagram - http://instagram.com/bezvizova_velopodorozh.


This is my first experience on Steemit. I hope it would go well :).

Good luck and safe travels! Welcome to Steem.

Hi @boga4! Great to see another traveller on Steemit. Everyone has their own definition of success and I don't think you should be too harsh on yourself. Cycling across the continent is not an easy thing to do, many can't even manage to make it across town!!! So it would be great for you to share your journey on Steemit.

By the way, I'm part of the @SteemitWorldmap curation team and we curate travel content everyday helping quality users to gain more exposure. You can find out more about it on http://steemitworldmap.com. Just click on the 'code' at the bottom of the map and follow the instructions or check out the FAQ to get your post on the map. Hope to see you soon and that you will follow us @steemitworldmap for our daily #TravelDigest!!!

Congratulations @boga4!

Welcome to steemit @boga4 :) Sounds like an interesting way to travel if you ask me ... simplified :) Thank you for sharing, and and thanks also to @brittandjosie for sharing your post in her Pay it Forward Curation Contest entry :)

I can't imagine all the trouble and adventures you went through and that you'll still endure.

So, will you go only to Lisbon or will you visit other places in Portugal? Don't forget Aveiro, Porto and Vila do Conde, if you have the time and energy.
