Across/Around

Really enjoyed the view from your camera, especially Portugal and the Netherlands. And now I have to find out how that guy was "floating" in air!

Seems to me, you did more than "ride across Europe" - you rode AROUND it!

Oh, and I've "invaded" a curb with my bike too, like the woman you met. That meant a new wheel and tire! Ha ha...

See you on the road...

Well it happend what happend and to be honest I'm glad... because new energy jump in me when I started to ride alone. It was like fresh breath.
Oh yeah, been there, done that.

It's not necessarily a mistake. Old friends may disappoint you too, such a journey with close contact over weeks and months may give new insights into friendships, good and bad. If it's a new aquaintance, a new friendship may grow - you never know in advance. Just be prepared to part, should tensions become too strong.

Usually it's the small things ... like one stops for photos often while the other wants to ride on: One feels pressured into making haste while the other feels pressured into waiting. Small, if it happens once or twice, but if the seemingly small tension coming from different attitudes or approaches to traveling grows over weeks ... well, you know how it ends.

Even if you're aware of it, it may happen sooner or later. But if you're aware, that it may happen, then the loss is smaller. Just be glad that you encouraged each other to start at all and had some good time together in the beginning.

Nice Ride Report, btw. :)

Great photo journal, hope to do the same soon, but will concentrate on Spain and hire a 400cc scoot in Malaga. Very inspirational, good luck with your future plans and look forward to another ride report.

levitation trick

the trick to the levitation appearance is pretty cool.
Under the carpet on the ground below him is a heavy gauge steel plate.
A metal rod is welded to it vertically (the cane or inside the cane)
Another metal rod is welded horizontally that either follows the contour of the arm, up to the shoulder and then back down to the seat level where another metal plate is welded for the guy to sit on...the other variation is the metal support rod instead of going up the arm, instead goes straight from the cane height to the seat.

You will never see one of these guy assume the levitation position or stop levitating to go home (set up and take down) because they would reveal the custom made prop. You also won't be able to peak under his carpet / rug beneath him.

For this set up to work, baggy clothing must be worn in the area where the metal frame exits the cane and goes to the metal seat, either through the shirt or through the pants.

Even knowing the trick it is still a mind bender to see it done.

check this short video to see a version of the prop required for the stunt.
