Anecdotes plein les sacoches

or how I joined solo the Iceland with my grand mother's bike

Über den Projekt

At 25, Aurélia feels like she needs to break up with her too much regulated daily life in order to go at the meeting of the others, to reconnect with the nature and also confront herself under all circumstances. That's why she decides, for the first time, alone, by bike, to embark on that journey.

Her turns of wheels will lead her from the black forest until the Icelandic glacier, from comfortable nights at wonderful hosts to bivouac on a hay cart, from all-you-can-eat breakfast to tin can under the rain...

Always alert, open-minded, she is carrying on the world she crosses a gaze without prejudice nor judgment, where she offers smiles, her joy of life, her travel tales as her sketch realized on road to foreigners.

6 months of wandering in North Europe, or 8200 km (5200 miles) travelled by bike, which has taught her to develop her instinct, to gain some self-confidence, to trust people and to be daily amazed.

It is on her return, by telling her escapade to her relatives that she had the idea to creat this travelogue, livened up by the desire to show how travelling as a single-handedly woman in Europe is not only possible but also and above all incredibly rewarding..."Launch into a solo journey should even be a prerequisite for all of us!".

The list of equipment essential to provide for; clothing tips to be on the top of your game (even as a girl), detailed maps of the route, games, discoveries, perseverance, interdependence, biomimicry, self-confidence...

Her quick made sketches, short illustrated cartoons, panoramic pictures, anecdotes: or how she has been able to create improbable and moving meetings, how she kept working all along the journey, how she defeated the cold and the wind upon the approach of the icelandic glacier, how she has been offered the "warrior" arsenal from an old german scoutmaster...
But also her doubts, reflections, and the way this has made her grow up!

A story you can read or chronologically or "peck" according to your mood! Novel split into Aurélia's personal development steps. You will also find:

  • Well made page-setting mixing texte & illustration

  • Games & funny explanations

  • Playful advice for travelers

"I do appreciate the personal reflections which show her evolution during that adventure. We instantly understand this is a human experience with its up & down, every part of it brings something to the trip. It gives some bravour seeing it is possible for a solo woman to face the unknow and manage in all security. Maps, pictures, drawings are all amazing and let us represent what she lives. Tips (ou travel tips) & meets she describes make us want to leave immediately." Anne-Gaëlle
