Simon’s adventurous travel on bicycle
I come from the quaint town of Luzern. My passion to travel, to meet the locals and understand their culture has seen me exploring some of the remote yet beautiful places in Europe, Central America, Africa and especially Asia.
My educational background in hotel management has led me to work for a few years in some of the renowned hotels and schools in Switzerland. Driven by my passion and curiosity to explore the world, I made the decision to travel from Switzerland to South Africa by bicycle in September 2010!
My brother Philipp who shared the same interest also decided to join me on this journey.
