The 41483km bike trip has come to an end, and I have been working on the final video. It’s a long finale to this two year trip. I hope you like it.

    Hoi Matthew,

    Hi Mathew
    Congratulationns to completing your great journey!

    I enjoyed all your stories from this wonderful adventure. They triggered memories from places that I had been to, dreams about places that sound wonderful but that I will probably never see and gratefulness that I only have to cycle to work through the German rain and not carry my bike through the mud in the Australian desert -naked- for a whole day.
    I was looking forward for your blogs every day for the last two years and will surely miss your stories and pictures.

    Alina and I wish you all the best for your next challenges down under.
    Drop by if you ever come back to Aachen.

    • Thanks Andi and Alina. Great to hear from you. Several times recently I thought about times we had together. Talking about Singapore, and about speech recognition systems..
      Cool. All the best and greetings from Downunder. M

    Great video, Matthew. It’s been a pleasure following your travels. You are one of the very few that have biked halfway across the world. Congratulations!

    bravo Matthieu , tu as réalisé ton rêve et tu m’as fait voyager pendant tout ce temps , je te dis merci et te souhaite le meilleur pour la suite , qui à mon avis va être un peu difficile au début . nous avons reçu Virgile (qui était parti depuis 5 ans) au Warmshowers , qui nous as dit avoir fait un bout de chemin avec toi.
    je vais m’inscrire sur le blog de Clément s’il veut bien de moi, pour continuer à rêver.
    je t’embrasse

    • Salut Nicole. Ah – je me rappelle être chez vous avant ce tour mondial de vèlo. C’étais super chez vous. Je crois que chez vous c’etais la première fois j’ai utilisé warmshowers. Un sèjour memorable!
      Merci, et amities de Adelaide!

    Great work Matthew! And many thanks for the very impressive 2-year journey-diary, it was a great pleasure to follow it. All the best wishes for the next steps on the trail!

    Ik zag vanavond pas je video maar heb ervan genoten.
    Dank je wel voor al je berichten foto,s en je belevenissen de afgelopen 2 jaar.
    Het leven zonder de fiets zal heel anders voor je worden maar mocht het niet lukken dan fiets je toch gewoon terug naar Eindhoven.
    Nogmaals veel dank en het gaat je goed.

    Mooi en coole muziek. Icehouse staat hier nu in Itunes favorietenlijst.. En als het wordt aangezet, dan moet ik even aan je denken, dat is lollig toch. Hoop dat het goed gaat in het great southern land. All the best!!
