ON THE GO WITH SOLAR POWER

- Herman Aartsen

Welcome to my blog!

I am a Dutch Engineer cycling around the European Union on a solar powered bicycle. Why? To show that it is possible to travel and enjoy life without a huge CO2 footprint.  During my trip I hope to find like-minded individuals to share my story with and bring awareness to a more sustainable way of living.

(22-1-2022) In november 2019 I wrote that I would continue cycling in northern direction after the winter. We all know what happened then. Many things have changed in the world, but also for me personally. This is the reason I will not complete my tour of Europe and decided to permanently move to Sweden instead. I have bought a small wooden house which I plan to turn into a sustainable and pleasant home. The recumbent bicycle will be kept just for short trips and for shopping. If you are interested you can follow my story here. I will try to publish something new at least once a week.
