First Stage

The European continent consists of 50 countries with five additional territories to be still fully recognized. There is no fixed route to cycle the entire continent, therefore, to estimate a total distance may not be accurate. At this time I can only estimate, that it may take 22,000 kilometres of cycling to visit all the countries.

The FIRST STAGE of this journey starts in Gibraltar followed with stops in; Lisbon, Madrid, Andorra, Monaco, Vaduz, Bern, Paris, Luxembourg, Brussels, Amsterdam,  Copenhagen, Berlin and finally my hometown Gdansk, Poland. This stage estimated distance is around 6,000 km.

Second Stage

The SECOND STAGE of this cycling madness came with few changes. in my ‘itinerary.’ I had to abort my plans  to visit Oslo and Stockholm . Otherwise, I would never make on time to my birthplace Gdansk where Jill and Wade, my dear friends from Vancouver, decided to join me. After three days of show-and-tell around Gdansk we hit the roads of Poland. We cycled together for 770 km. Then, they headed back home and I continued through the crazy hills of Czech Republic where I eventually rested for two nights in Prague. Then, Vienna and unplanned three nights in the home of Mozart. Thanks to a Polish cyclists who generously shared his flat with me. Then Bratislava, Budapest, Belgrade, Sofia, Skopje and Tirana. A beautiful landscape of Montenegro took me to Podgorica. From there Croatia and unplanned  (again) eight nights in Dubrovnik. My last two capitals were Vatican and fanfare less arrival to Rome. My first visit to this ancient capital in 33 years. I spent there eight long days. At the end ,it was time to head back home, that is Gdańsk in Poland. I didn’t think twice, the KLM airlines was my choice. Overall I pedalled for 11,432 km, crossing 26 countries, and visiting 24 capitals. I am fully satisfied and happy of my achievement.
