Around The World In 1000 Days
If you feel like escaping from modern monotony and leaving everyday life behind, there is no better way to travel and see the world than on a bike. Bikepacking is about going slowly, exploring the world and seeing it for the first time, also bringing back the most indelible memories about the people you’ve met. "Around The World In 1000 Days" is a new book that documents a captivating story by Swedish cycle-tourer Fredrika Ek (the 2017 Adventurer of the Year) whom spent 1042 days on her bike, solo and unsupported, covering 51,000 kilometres across 45 different countries. In the process she raised $85,000 for Action Aid. Driven by curiosity, and a burning desire to find out what awaited on the other side, she crossed deserts and mountains, national borders and the boundaries of pain, over doorsteps, and straight into people´s homes and lives. 1042 days and a planet later, she came home with an amazing story to tell.
