WT Correspondence with Antun Čolig and friends in Zagreb, Croatia: Discussion is Round The World Bicycle Travel

DREAM WITH OPEN EYES, 


PLAN THE IMPOSSIBLE MISSION, 


FACE YOUR FEARS AND LIVE THE DREAM!

DEDICATION TO MY BIKE TRAVELER FRIEND


THE DREAM IS ABOUT POSSIBILITIES. 
WHEN ALL THE FEAR WILL VANISH?


IT IS THE DAY YOU LEAVE ZAGREB AND ARE READY FOR THE ROAD. 
YOU SHOULD CONSIDER EXPEDITIONS LIKE MINE, IT CAN HELP YOU EXPLORE, EARN MONEY, AND TRAVEL MORE...


TO CONTINUE IS PURE WILL, LUCK, SERENDIPITY, FAITH IN YOURSELF. 


I HAD LITTLE FOOD IN CHINA, I LOST 15 KG IN THE 3200KM OF CYCLING, 10 KG TRAINING BEFORE I LEFT KOREA. 


IF YOU FEAR SOMETHING, 
YOU WILL EVENTUALLY FACE THAT FEAR DIRECTLY TO OVERCOME ANYTHING. 


IT'S A FIGHT, NOT A RACE. IT TAKES STRENGTH WHEN THERE IS NO FOOD OR ENERGY TO CARRY ON, 


YOU WILL OVERCOME.

If Anthony has the money, or more importantly your bike,panniers, tent, sleeping bag, mattress, camera, phone, and money, it is a requirement for travel around the planet. How much money depends on how hot showers, hotel or wild camping luck with meeting new people, serendipity, and his open heart on a bicycle, which is really the reason for the trip, to be free, to see,experience, to travel wide open distances without a ticket price of fuel or a gas swallowing car. It has been translated, I hope that my message is clearly understood. Hello Antun friends in Croatia and Europe, I hope to meet my brother on the road and traveling together. Peace, Brian

First options: Going to Korea and travels around the world with Brian Perich. Second options: Going to travel with the Croats. Third options: Going to travel alone. 4th options: to go somewhere and earn money while traveling. 5th options: Earn all the money, or at least most of the money needed in Croatia and quiet travel with one of a tourer, I hope Brian. (Most likely)!

I know a man who went to drive in the world without a lime in his pocket, and then another that took a coin from the house, which gave him the mother and her and returned after a few years ago when he came home.:)

Saddlebags, trailers, tents, and fotoapart, that's the necessary equipment, for which I have given 2000 euros if we want to endure. I can take and cheap equipment, of course, but the quality and waterproofing can not be measured.

Can I can tour the world without money? Can Europe, Asia and Africa, and this is not the world! America and Australia can not forget, because I do not have money for the plane, and otherwise they can not come to these continents.

Brian Perich:

It's definitely not cheap to begin with. I spent a similar amount of Anthony in U.S. dollars and shipped all the friends in Korea (where prices are 40-60% more expensive). My real touring bike you see, was purchased at an online auction website for $ 400. The rest of the equipment I used in the Himalayas / western China expedition cost thousands more, a laptop computer carried in panniers, panniers, tent, sleeping bag (4-season, $ 400), and camera film Anthony riding in the world (because I can not film me riding 10 hours a day!) the large initial investment. But the bike is very important, mine is probably worth $ 400 just for parts now. The most important piece of equipment is your heart, open mind, willingness to travel, to endure, to live for FREE, as opposed to old and new fears and living your dream with your eyes are now wide open.12 minutes ago · Like

Waterproofing Tent with Scotch Guard or silicone spray (or liquid silicone can be applied to the surface with a brush), I used this on my 1975 Jeep CJ5 traveling across America on the canvas roof of my old boots and the motorcycling across America five times in 60 days (24,000 km) and the rain fly of the tent and on the bottom and seams in šator.Oprema should be waterproof panniers most of the time, if flooding occurs at night, or there is a need to escape in a hurry.  (:

Innovation is the way of bicycle travelers. Some arehappier than others, the family has their paycheck to pay forintercontinental flights to round-the-world adventure, but most of us come from conventional family who have worked hard to owntheir home, a dream is definitely not travel around the planet.Unfortunately, it is an intersection that must pass. I have traveled independently from my family in Canada for most of my life. My parents could only afford a car and camping adventure as a family, so we crossed into the eastern U.S. from Canada, from snow and rain to the north, to beautiful beaches and bikinis down south (Daytona, Florida). It was crazy driving for 24 hours together, this experience is what makes me a better driver, and later a better bike rider with crazy endurance, but only an average body like any other man drinking beers in pub. The mind is different than the body, it can be trained to endure pain and overcome obstacles...all the way to triumph. (:

About the Korean-World Author

Brian Perich was an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) lecturer for a decade, father, and adventure cyclist based in South Korea.

Previously, Brian has led Canoe adventures in Quetico Provincial Park, Atikokan, Ontario, Canada (1993/1999); led Grand American camping adventures (2000); lived at Paramahansa Yogananda's SRF Ashram for 5 months (see the film "AWAKE"), formerly worked in titanium welding at Agilent Technologies, formerly worked in Winery industry in Marin County with Kendall Jackson in California; Surfing and Meditation continued for several years in California, British Columbia, South Korea, Yoga training in California 1999-2000.

Between 1994-1998 - Brian completed his own adventures with motorcycles. His motorcycling marathons took him across the United States and central/western Canada, while traveling solo over an astounding 24,000km in 60 days! Brian endured 900 mile/1300km average days in the motorcycle saddle and apparently loved every minute of those adventures.

Today, he has given up motorcycle adventures altogether, but finds an outlet for his enthusiasm in outdoor recreation while bicycle touring and micro-blogging about those experiences on his mountain bikes.

While employed as an English teacher in South Korea, Brian has became an advocate for bicycle touring on his mountain bikes. The Korean-World blog originated from those small adventures in Korea, now expanded to cover his recent trek down the TransMongolian highway to the Gobi Desert, cycling 900km east through the Khentii grasslands and in 2012 crossing Mongolia in 45 days, 2500 kilometers 1553 miles. HimalayasX expedition Brian previously cycled across western China, the Taklamakan Desert, the northern Himalayas of East Turkestan Xinjiang/Uyghur Autonomous Region, the corrugated back roads and mountains of Kham Tibet. Brian successfully completed his 2011 mountain bike expedition with 3200 kilometers / 1988 miles unsupported, on/off road MTB adventure cycling.
Brian has completed his second mountain bike journey, MongoliaX expedition - Crossing Mongolia 2012, an unsupported mountain bike MTB expedition across 2500km of Outer Mongolia from Ulanbaatar to Altai Taven-Bogd National Park bordering China, Russia and Mongolia.


In 2013, as a sequel to a trilogy of cycle tours, Brian enjoyed a more leisure bicycle tour onboard his Koga-Miyata World Traveller seeing the northern tier of the United States and western Canada covering 3400 kilometers / 2000 miles in 30 days. This North American cycle tour was called Totherocktour. Enjoying the adventure of bicycle travel and every great conversation started while traveling on the road - has refueled his inspirations to cycle around the Earth. In 2013, while he cycled solo from the Great Lake State of Michigan, United States to Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. He weaved through local communities and reconnected with friends, family and community after spending almost a decade in Asia.


Brian is now supporting several non-profit foundations through expeditions: IDEAS Foundation of Canada IDEAS is the acronym for Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society which supports the IBD community, those suffering from IBD-inflammatory bowel disease, also known as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis.


The second non-profit foundation is ETE.ORG - Education Through Expeditions, UK which supports educational outreach programs inside schools around the world. ETE connects explorers with students in the classroom, through an interactive online program in development (Beta).


Brian is researching support for a 18000 kilometer bicycle expedition across the Americas: North, Central and South America - ONE -Arctic to Argentina
