At this rate, by the time we get to Australia, we should have a good dozen posts. This one is about good fortune.
You might know that we're planning a trip. The kind of trip that people often do for benevolent reasons. Philanthropic reasons. Earth-saving, climate-change-reversing, spiritually-enlightening, soul-searching, navel-gazing (or naval-gazing) reasons. Those guys get sponsors, and so they should, I say. Typically, we don't. It's not that we're not trying, but just that we're not so good at convincing people yet.
But here we are, at-bat, playing for ourselves (and at the moment paying for ourselves) to trip the light fandango all across greater Eurasia to the Oceania in the hopes of a good time with no flat tyres.
We'll write, we'll photo, we'll film, we'll navel-gaze and naval-gaze and report it and hopefully you'll enjoy it and those of you who can't ride a bike, can't cross international borders (I can), can't leave the kids you decided to have (or didn't decide to have.. but in that case, you kind of can leave them.. ?) will live vicariously through us.
Well, it seems someone heard our call for sponsorship. In fact, two someones. The first is Theresa's parents who have supplied her with a helmet (yep, that's the actual helmet... we're waiting on Theresa's review..). Some might think this is really an extension of parental care, protection of genetic material, and evolutionarily a selfish gesture (in German here), but in the end, we're glad. Theresa's glad because she has a helmet that is light and stylish, and while not hermitically sealed, decently soundproof. I'm glad because although it's not hermetically sealed, it's decently soundproof.
Our second sponsor, luckily for us, is the makers of the world's best ever cameras, bulletHD. This is awesome. Check out our sponsorship page, and as soon as we test out the cameras, get ready for rad videos and objective reviews.
And also, if you suddenly feel like sponsoring a pair of goons to ride a long way.. clicky clicky
