The 12:th of March 2011 I (Emil Börner) left sweden together with my friend Oscar Johansson to embark on my first epic adventure. A bicycle tour that I had planned would take us from Sweden to Beijing in China. I had never before bicycled a longer distance and realised as I set out that life on a saddle was quite different from what I had expected. During 11 months I crossed the worlds forests, deserts and mountain ranges in all sorts of weather conditions. It was a journey that came to change my life and my future values.
When I finished my trip in 2012 I had biked to Bangkok instead of Beijing and covered a distance of 13 500 km. I knew at the same day as I was finished that I wanted to be back on the road again and am currently working hard to prepare and save up money for a even bigger trip.
Here on thebigtrip.se you can read all about my adventures and the many positive sides of bicycle touring. I will give you tips and hopefully help you embark on a journey of your own.
Welcome and may the tailwinds always be with you!
