My name is Bram, aka BikelifeBram, and I am entering my 30’s soon.
I grew up in the northern part of the Netherlands with my parents and three sisters. I’ve always been a quite active person – which made me look outside the school windows most of the time instead of paying attention. I was member of an atlethics club and I played a lot of soccer with my friends.
After highschool I decided to move out and I started a bachelor in Journalism. I lived the studentlife to the fullest. With some blood and tears I managed to graduate, although I did put my study on hold for a year to do my first bike tour to Athens and to work to earn some money.
After those study years I did several jobs, I worked in a bar, as a consultant, as a planner and I even started with the police academy to become a police officer. During those years I made bike tours to Casablanca, Lisboa and some shorter adventures from Barcelona to Bari and tours in Greece and Albania.
During my working years I never felt I was in the right place at the right time. There was always this voice in my head telling me that I had to conquer the world by bike and now I can’t find any reason to not do so – I’m finally living my dream!

The journey has come to an end. Eleven months since I took off, 24 countries in Europe and Asia and in a way it doesn't matter about the kilometers, the hours ridden on the bike. What matters the most is how I felt. And I felt great, ofcourse not all day everyday, no...
1500km to go and I'm not even sure if I will cover everything by bike. I have decided to be back in The Netherlands for a wedding of a good friend the 17th of september. That's a clear deadline and it feels good to have one. It gives every day a purpose. Every meter...
