Hello everyone! Hello to the half dozen of our old readers!, hello to you, fresh follower!
These are Leon and Nelson writing to you. We’ve had a little blog affair running here a couple of years (de cuyo número no quiero acordarme) ago, starting with our bike trip from Paris to Rome and thereafter continuing at a slow pace with bits and pieces of whatever interested us at the time.
We’ve always tried to play it cool and to not fall into the standard travel blog tropes. That’s not to say it’s improved the reading experience. Our hallmark features include obtuse allusions to things you couldn’t know and we were to lazy to tell; haphazard topical jumps between memory management and baroque painting technique; plenty of vain references to places you haven’t been to; and an update schedule as reliable as Ligurian roadworks.
It’s April 2022 (scary large number), and we’re trying … the same? … something completely different? … – in fact, we’ll just have more coherent stuff to talk about now. Plenty of water’s run down the Rivers Wisła Pleiße Seine Ems; plenty of things we used to wonder about are clearer now and plenty of new questions loom behind the next corner.
And even in case we can’t keep posting morale on a high forever, rest assured that at least throughout this summer we’ll keep you entertained – for there’s a new bike trip on the horizon. Leon’s in Paris again – this time for a somewhat longer stay than usual, whose rent contract finishes the 30th of June. That’s when we’ll meet up and start going East again, eventually towards Leipzig, though probably with a hundred detours and squiggles and zig-zag and back-and-forth and will-you-look-at-this-thing! and fuck-we-took-a-wrong-turn-thirty-kilometers-ago! and and and …
… and we’ll tell you all about it, of course!
