We wanted to share with you a meeting filled with lots of questions and answers, emotions and admiration!

We were able to meet with Sophie the globe trotter, in Paris before our ‘test run’ bike trip in Britanny.

Avec Sophie de Courtivron

Sophie de Courtivron travelled around the world alone for 1 year and 9 months. 3000 km by foot, 5000 km by bicycle with a 10 kg backpack, and never once took a plane. Her travels took her from the cold of Siberia to the sun of Central America.
She published  « Le nez au vent » (éditeur Les 2 Encres) (Nose to the wind) to tell her story.

Voir ici son interview à TV5 monde. (here is her interview on television).

During our meeting, we were able to pick her brain! Everything from thoughts on itinerary to technique, meetings, food, vacines, finding sponsors etc…. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this motivational thumbs up and the little message of encouragement shown below!
