The launch of Cycloasis

Welcome to the blog CYCLOASISCycling to reconnect Earth and Humanity!

This is a journal of my bicycle journey of 4 months through France, called CYCLOASIS, visiting innovative eco-projects, oasis‘, that reconnect earth and humanity. During this period I will feed this blog with my travel experiences, beautiful encounters and interesting stories & features on these projects.

Over half a year of preparations comes to a close now. The result is, among others, the launch of this blog. As you can imagine lots of things need to be organised for a journey like this. And surprises are never far away! Although I have lived in different European countries and know the red tape, it is amazing to discover on what you can stubble when organising ‘cross-border’ activities in Europe and using a sustainable means of transport; a bicycle.

Think about taking a travel insurance. All kinds of motorised vehicles are included in the package, but a bicycle … no way! What about getting the bicycle on the train, or a ‘simple’ subscription to telecom outside the country you live in ….?!

Read more about this soon on this blog and follow me in all the adventures to come.

You can also find CYCLOASIS on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Desejo que esta viagem te sirva para um melhor conhecimento de parte da Europa pouco ou nada falada. Talvez a verdadeira, livre de falsos profetas políticos e de ladrões engravatados sem qualquer sentimento de respeito pela cultura dos povos.
    Força, continua assim. Beijos.

  2. Dag Ans,

  6. Hi Ans, congratulations for having the courage to do all the planning needed for this project and being able to put it into practice now. We’ll be in touch along this experience. Send you love and best wishes.

  7. Hei corajosa!
    Mudar de vida nem sempre é fácil, mas é preciso respirar o ar
    puro para sentir o coração a pulsar de outra maneira; mais fresca, mais terrena, mais inspiradora. No percurso que escolheste, mais do que a paisagem exterior, espero que a viagem interior seja muito rica . Espero também que enchas de notícias o teu blog para que te possamos acompanhar e dar força quando delas precisares. Lá estarei no sábado ! Bom trabalho e boa sorte!
    Um abraço 🙂

  8. And in French now:
    Bonjour Ans, en welkom in Frankrijk. Bienvenue dans le sud de la France qui est aussi un sud que nous partageons bien volontiers avec d’autres Européens. Que ce périple ouvre maintes occasions de rencontres prévues et imprévues, qui seront autant de ponts entre nous, pour faire connaître cette belle biodiversité de nos vies locales et de nos expériences.
    A bientôt donc ! Jacques
