  • Today I am 26,what I’ve got from life.

When threatend by gun

I seemed never had any luck in Germany, the first time when I was only 20 kms away from Germany, I got caught by the Polish police on the highway, I thought they were nicely trying to help me like the police in other countries,but they just wanted to give me fine for 250 polish money( which is like 78 dollars), I got shocked and didnt expect that fine at all .

’’Sorry, I don’t have money ‘. I didn’t intend to pay the fine, and the truth is ,I really don’t have money .

‘GO, EXCHANGE !’

That polish police didn’t speak good English, just repeated these two words time to time and pointed the ATM asking me to exchange polish money.

I was insisted, so was he.It was so hard to keep 3 euros a day already, how could you take this unreasonable money from me?  That didn’t just make me sad,but also felt wronged, like an old potatoe-selling man got rubbed of all of his hard-earned money.

After deadlocked for half an hour, I gave in , didn’t want to waste any more time on this cold-blooded person,my tears couldn’t help streaming down when I was walking towards ATM, I didn’t want to be seen by anyone, only myself knew how aggrieved I felt.

But there isn’t that much money in my card,I took 150 polish money to him and told him that was all the money I have,he thought I was lying and asking me to pay the rest 100 immediately, I said that was all the money I have.  He walked out of his car arrogantly , showed me his gun and made the gesture of handcuff. He was trying to say that if I don’t pay the rest then he will send me to jail.

‘Ok, if you don’t believe it, take my card,you go and check how much money I have left’

Threaten my life for 100? Was he really enforcing the law or just defending his own power and dignity?

He followed me to the ATM and did believe that there was no money on my account, he backed to the car and started calling.

I started to pray at that time,  I was too tired to fight againt such a foreign police forces, but I knew God’s grace has been accompanying by, God always says to me ‘ Don’t give up,this is not the end, my grace be with you ‘!

Miracle appeared after prayers. He came down from the car with a huge smile on his face, and gave  my passport and money back,I didn’t know what happened, but I didn’t feel thankfu for him ,it was God not him. He patted on my shoulder and smiled to me as if he was not hte gun who pointed me with his gun a few minutes ago.The small road to the Germany border was blocked by barbed wire,he asked people to open the door and directed me the way.

Riding on the path alone,I let all the tears go ,Jesus, I have seen the love of the world, but also the cruelty of humanilty, in the end, only your love never abandoned me.

The closest time to death.

After entering into Germany, everything should be  wiped off and restart.There are a lot of biking path in Germany so I could finally GPS the cycling route to Berlin, the cycling route was always tricky in other countries, it either took me to the forest or the fields, when i had no way to go ,I had to just use the offline map since i dont have a SIM card, but the offline map usually just take me to the highway.

I was too innocent, after biked for 8 kms,the GPS went  away from main street and started entering into forest, this scene was so familiar ,that is usually the sign of’ getting lost’,but i didn’t think that would happen in Germant, BUT, i was wrong ,the end of the road was only a train trail, the only way was to cross the trail except for going back, after biked on the muddy and unpaved road in the forest ,I dind’t want to go back .Maybe there was a bright road after the trail, lets give it a shot, I always thought in that way.

The trail was surrounded by a pile of loose stones,like a heap of slope,in oder to cross the trail, I had to carry my whole bike with heavy panniers to climbe over the stones.It was hard enough to just walk through,not mention to carry my bike over.But I had to, there was 1000 strong guys in my body!However,the expected bright road didn’t show up after crossed the trail, there was just a super narrow path right next to the trail, when the train pass by ,I almost blowed away by the wind ,what’s worse, there was no raod after walked on the small path for a few meters, I really had to go back this time.

This time, I had to carry the bike over the stone slope again, ah, that’s life ! Right after I got in the middle of the trail,a train came! It just came a few minutes ago, I didn’t expect that another one would come so soon. I was still struggling with the heavy bike,the train approached much faster than I thought, only a few seconds,it got so close to me ! I had to ignore the stones and just jumped off the trail with my bike, there was only 0.01 seconds before the train hit me ! My arms got hit and my bike racks got broken, I still had to walk out of the muddy forest with my scratched up body,the rainstorms was dramaticly pouring down,the director must feel pitty that he didn’t select me as the of heroine of  Netherworld if he had seen this.

After the rack got broken, i took the bus to Berlin, it was just like a rewad to me, the only relaxing moment of this long day.

I got Berlin at 22, I contacted all of the hosts in the city but I didn’t get any luck,after standing in the wind for 2 hours, the dramatic rain poured down at 00, it was like a film and I must be the most reality actor.After prayed, I decided to spend overnight under the bridge, but just at that time, a couchsufing host accepted my request ‘! God always let me experience first but save me in the end.

When I was heading to the place,I saw this cyclist sleeping under the bridge.

There is always someone who can feel satisfied no matther where he sleeps ,what he eats. We would be happier if i have the same mentality as them,no more anxiety for what to eat and where to sleep, for some people, its just a normal part of their life, but we are struggling for eating better, wear better, live better, we are not unhappy ,we just don’t know what is happy !

 

Lost my wallet

The second time entering into Germany, I had been rained for 3 days in Danmark,tent 2 nights ,either woke up by cold or rain.After rained half day in Germany, the sun finally willing to show up. After bought some bread at Lidl,I decided to head to Hamburg- the city has  no hamburger.After rode for 10 kms, a thought shocked me

“Where did I put my wallet?”

I just put my wallet on my rear panniers after bought the bread, thought about putting them back after i finish eating, but i completely forgot it after eating !!I had gone for 10 kms, how possible that I could find it ?It was just like the time when I lost my tent, crazily heading back hopefully that I could find it even I knew it was impossible!

After rode for 10000kms,what should be broken is broken, racks, camera, phone, computer,what should be gone is gone, wallet,money. I am glad that my passport is still here, in case that i am gone someday,someone could pick me up and remember to send me back to China.

I had to move on and decided to tour around the beautiful harbor city ,I met a group people who is from South Africa but lived in Germany for more than 10 years, they surrounded me and excitedly asking me where do I come from,how far did I bike and where do I go next.  After we separated for a few minutes, we met again at the cross, they said there was a beer festival going on and invited me to have a beer together. I couldn’t think of any reason to say ‘no’ so I went with them.

We didn’t just share a lot of intersting things, but they also showed me the city on bike, one of the guy called Hans asked me if i have any place to stay for the night, I said no, he said if you don’t mind,you could stay with us. He live with another guy and he spaced his daughter’s room for me.

He works at a bike shop so he replaced a new bike rack for me , his major was economy but he is more happy to work in the bike shop, doing the things you like is the most happiness thing.

He took me to the playground, we had some chocalate fruits,  took the ferry wheel and roller coaster,it was just back to  my childhood, he said sometimes we should be just like kids,simply get happy from candy,leave the bad things to the sky.

Is there really something in our life we can’t let it go?

Broken rack could be replaced, broken phone could be repaired, the wallet is lost but we are not. Sometimes we are in some moments we think its really big but actually nothing serious, every little things could easily defent us, we overestimated the pain and underestimated the endurance of life,step forward or step back is will take us to a new stage.

Blind Tour Cyclist

I contacted a host through WarmShowers in Bremen when I was in Hamburg,on his profile he wrote

‘My first cycling tour was from Turkey to Iran,4000 kms, I am blind, but to be blind is not a reason for not to ride a bike’

‘I have to meet you ! ‘ I sent the request to him

Luckily he accepted my request. I called him when I was in front of his apartment,he said waiting me there. He groped his  way along the corridor,I saw him stagger his steps and was going to open the door, I steped forward and held his hands, I felt I saw I grandfather at that moment.

He is more positive and humorous than I thought,he showed me every rooms and prepared dinner for me ,I asked if I could help with anything,he smiled’ this is my place, don’t worry ,just relax and take a warm shower if you want’.

He made a wonderful dinner and even homemade ice cream, he and his husband live in this apartment, he said this is not big but not small, they are not rich but not poor,they have some money but not too much, they are happy what they have.

Refering that 4000kms cycling tour, he did with his husband on a tandem bike.

That was my first cycling, and also my first time camping outside. I had a lot of good experiences and got a lot of hospitality from people. But we got arrested for 3 times in Iran, we accidentaly got on their nuclear sites and they thought we are international spy, they kept us in the jail for 1 day until they believe we are just travelers.’he said.

‘What made you decide to make this trip?’

‘I JUST WANT TO SEE THE WORLD’

The next day he showed me around the city with his husband on tandem bike,actually they have hosted a lot of cyclists, each time they will show them the city, sometimes his husband has to work so he will take his service dog to show them, the city he can’t be more familiar with ,but he introduces to his guests like its the first time,he knows every statue,restaurant very well, his eyes could see through anything.

He has been traveled more than 50 countries, he even learnt 7 languages himself and trying very hard learning writing and typing everyday.Only one day, he has remembered a lot of Chinsese words I taught them.

‘Why do you have a big passion for language?’I asked.

‘It is a respecting to local people’ he said,’ and aslo a better way to involve in them, their culture and their life.

HE CANT SEE THE WORLD, BUT NOTHING CAN STOP HIM SEEING THE WORLD.

He has no difference from normal people, the only difference is that he has more passion for life. THE WORLD DIDN’T GIVE HIM LIGHT, BUT HE BRING THE LIGHT TO THE WORLD.

We always create so many obstacles to stop our dream. I can’t go travelling because of no money; I can’t learn a foreign language because of no time; I can’t travel too far because I never travel before; I can’t do a long trip cycling because I am not in shape*****You can’t do not because you can’t ,just because you are lazy.

You are lazy to learn so you always take ‘not good at English’ as an excuse; you are lazy to change so you always take your bad temper as your personality; you are lazy to believe to love  to  trust so you always think the world is full of terrorists.

WHEN LIFE SLAPPED ON YOUR FACE, SOMEONE  NEVER TRUST THE LIFE AGAIN, SOMEONE TURNS HIS ANOTHER SIDE TO LIFE.

 

I am 26, what I’ve got from life.

Most people try to figure out what life is everyday,but nobody get the answer.Actually the moment you think about life most is usually when you are not feeling very well.

Like when you are stressful from work, you ask’ what is life?why it is so hard?

When you get dumped by your girlfriend,you ask’what is life? why it is so misereable?”

When you have no money, you ask,’what is life? why there are so many people lives better than me?’

What is life? It is a good question, but I have no answer either.

So, I decided to start this cycling tour, because I am so tired of thinking about what life is,I just wanna go ,without thinking about anything,

Before I start this cycling tour ,I had no idea what is like ,how to make the route, how to find camp place, what shall I eat??? Just no outline in my mind at all, but there was only one thought, just go ,just do it , you will figure it out.It won’t be harder than finding the answer of what life is .

When I was camping at the first night, I was so nervous, even the bugs crawling sounded like footsteps for me ,my heart was beating fast the whole night, I couldn’t sleep well ,but now i could literally sleep everywhere, the parking lot, the forest,the holiday village, the cinema,the bridge,the stranger’s yard,life teaches me, if you are afraid of something, do it more until you don’t.

When i lost my tent, i cried, because my lost my only shelter, now i lost my wallet, I joked myself ,life teaches me if you  lose something that really matters to you,either get a new one or just forget about it, the same to anything we value.

When I biked 130 kms per day the first time,I was like” wow! I did a good job!’ When I biked 180 kms per day the first time, I was like ‘ wow, I didn’t know I could do this far!’ When I biked 1000kms ,I was like ‘wow, I really did it !’ When I biked 10000kms ,I was like ‘wow, I didn’t know I could make this far !’ Life teaches me never set the limit for yourself,if you don’t ,then there will be not!’

I don’t seek for the answer of life, but the answer came to me. The fact I am making this trip this far teaches me life is to choose, choose what you want but not what you fear; The hard moments I had on the road teaches me life is to have courage, not having the courage to get through, but having the courage to meet new yourself ;The 3 euros a day trip teaches me life is cherish, cherish what you have, happy what you choose;

When I told people that I am going to cycle  across America, people tell me’ Please don’t do,its too dangerous! Everyone has guns  there, and so many rubbers and rapist!’ But it turns out that American is the most amazing people I’ve ever met.

Then I told people that I am going to cycle acround  Europe,people tell me‘Please dont do, its too dangerous! A lot of refugees and muslins, bombs everywhere’ But it turns out that Europe is the most safe and biking friendly place.

Then I told people that I am going to cycle around Africa, people tell me ‘ Please dont do, Africa is really dangerous! You would never know how dangerous it is !”

I’m not gonna say  the world is  safe, I mean,nowhere is relatively safe,but we live in the world, we gotta experience, we have to feel it with our eyes,our heart, not just by our ears. The world needs trust, life is love, life is trust.

Don’t think about what life is anymore, forget about it , but,to bravely feel it .

 今天我26-当生活扇了你一巴掌

从3月9日骑行到现在,已经将近5个月的时间,10820公里,15个国家,

枪口的威胁

与死亡0.01秒擦肩而过

丢失钱包

盲人骑行4000公里

今天我26,生活教会了我什么
枪口的威胁

两次进入德国,却似乎总是摆脱不了命运的捉弄。第一次在离德国边境20公里的波兰境界,不幸在高速上被警察捕获,原以为是好心的带离我下高速,结果却是索要250元波兰币的罚款(相当于1800左右人民币),我整个人懵掉在那里,习惯了接受好心的帮助,第一次被强硬的索要如此高额罚款却是让我措手不及。

“对不起,我没有钱!”我并不打算交这罚款,现实是我也确实没钱。

“Go,exchange !”他只会简单的英文,不管我怎么解释,他只是重复着这两个字,指着前面的ATM兑换机,让我拿卡去兑换250元的波兰币。

他很强硬,我也很坚持,其实我的内心是崩溃的,一路风餐露宿一天3欧元本就不易,却要支付在我看来毫不合理的高额罚款,这让我不仅心痛更觉得委屈,好似一个卖红薯的老贩被城管扣押了来之不易的血汗钱一样,他们执法合理,没有人情味的坚持却让人心寒。

在这样僵持了半个小时后,我终究耗不住,不想再浪费多余的时间在这冷血无情的人身上,走向ATM 的那一刻眼泪却是止不住的流下来,不想让任何人看见,可是那一刻的委屈只有自己才懂。

然而卡里并没有那么多余额,我取了150元波兰币给他,告诉他,那是我全部的积蓄。他认为我是在耍赖,不耐烦的指着250元的罚款金额,让我立即补交。我说这已经是我的全部积蓄了!他根本不信,傲慢的从车里下来指了指他腰间的枪,又做出一个手铐的动作,意思是你若不交罚款,后果有你受的!

好吧,你若不信我把卡给你,你自己看看里面有没有钱。

为了100元,居然拿命威胁,到底是秉公执法还是为了捍卫自己的势力和尊严?

他跟着我到了ATM 机,在确认里面确实没钱后,他回到了车里,开始打电话。

在那一刻,我开始祈祷,我好累,我没有力气也没有精力与一个陌生国度的民警势力来抗衡,可是我知道神的恩典一直伴随,神总是会对我说,不要放弃,这并不是结局,我的恩典与你同在,我会给你最好的安排!

奇迹也在祷告后出现,他从车里下来,一脸堆满了从未有过的笑意,并且把护照和钱还给了我!我不知道发生了什么出现这样的逆转,可是我深信这是出自神的救助。我淡淡的说了句谢谢,他拍了拍我的肩膀,满脸笑容似乎刚刚拿枪指着我的不是他一样。去往德国边境有一条小路,本来是被铁丝网封锁的,他叫人打开锁,并且清楚的给我指引了前面的道路。

一个人骑在小路上,似乎所有的委屈都在这一刻发泄出来,耶稣啊,我经历了人世间的爱也感受人性的残酷,可是最终,只有你的爱不离不弃!
与死亡0.01秒擦肩而过

在进入德国后,我想一切该是要否极泰来了吧,擦掉一切重新开始。德国的自行车道很多,我也开始放心的用自行车路线导航去柏林的路,在之前之所以迷路太多次的原因也是因为很多的自行车道都很坑,不是把我带到树林里就是稻田,而我没有手机卡没办法重新导航,只能够用离线地图,但是离线GPS却只有车道,大部分都是高速路线。

我想我还是太年轻,在跨越边境8公里后,导航开始偏离主街道驶向森林,这样的场景我太熟悉了,不详的预感涌上来,但是却又抱着侥幸的心理相信德国不会这么坑我,然鹅,我错了,路的尽头只有一段铁轨🛤️,除了回头唯一的选择就是冲过铁轨,在跌跌撞撞的冲过满是泥泞和石块沙砾的小路后,我实在不想再回头。拼一把吧,也许前面就是路了!我总是这样想。

铁轨被一堆堆砌起来的松散的石块围住,就像一个石堆坡一样,为了上铁轨,必须要扛着整车翻过这些大石块,然而这并不容易!光是人爬过这些石块就很难,更何况是带着这么重的车加行李,但是为了光明的前方,只能硬扛,那一刻,有千万条汉子在我身上凝结,鼓起浑身的力气把车扛上铁轨又抬下石头坡,前面,并没有迎接我的光明大道,只有一条沿着铁轨只有单车宽度的小道,一辆火车飞驰而过,扬起来的风完全能把我扇起来若不是我这吨位,忍辱在小道上走了一段路后,再一次没路了!这一次,只能选择回头,有的时候,坚持不一定就有希望。

这一次,我又得再一次扛着整车加行李翻过石头坡,越过铁轨,我的力气渐渐耗尽,没有了来时抱着希望的激情,刚刚到铁轨中间,一辆火车从远方驶来,几分钟前刚有一辆火车出没,这么快来第二辆却是我始料未及的。我还在铁轨上扛着车挣扎,火车却比我想象的快的多的速度向我靠近,本来只是远远的一个点,瞬间的功夫就已经在我眼前,我完全顾不得是否前面还有石头坡了,抱着单车就这样越过石头跳下了铁轨,而火车就在我跳下铁轨的那一刻0.01秒在我背后擦过!双手磕在了石头上,那一瞬间来自手臂的巨痛却不及背后一阵冷汗,若不是那一跳,此刻受伤的就不仅是手臂了。 

车架也摔断,带着伤痕累累的车和心还是得走出坑坑洼洼的丛林,而大雨却在那刻戏剧般的淋遍全身,把一身狼狈的我更是浇的体无完肤,琼瑶阿姨若是知道,该后悔没有选我当情深深雨蒙蒙的女主角吧!

在车架摔断后,我选择了乘坐巴士去柏林,因为近所以也比较便宜,在巴士上的放松完全就像是对自己的一个犒赏,在经历这样有惊无险却伤痕累累的一天后,此刻,我终于不用再奔波。

到达柏林已是晚上10点,联系了所有我能联系的host,却没有任何回应。在寒风中伫立了2个小时,凌晨12点,暴雨又如戏剧般的淋下来,这一天,就像是狗血的电视剧情,而我,大概是演绎最真实的女主角了。在祈祷过后,我决定寻找最近的天桥过夜,然而,手机却在这时响起,一个沙发客主人接受了我的请求,而他就住在2公里以外的地方。神总是让我先去经历,却又在最后关头使我得拯救。

在路上看到这个睡在天桥的骑行者,总有人不管在哪都能睡的安稳,总有人不管吃什么都能觉得幸福,若将一切看淡,拥有像他们一样的心态,我们该会快乐很多,不用再为吃什么住哪里而去焦虑,这对很多人来说早已是他们生活的一部分,而我们却每天因为想要住的更好,吃的更好,穿的更好而挣扎甚至纠结痛苦,我们不是不快乐,我们只是不懂什么是快乐!
丢失钱包

第二次进入德国,在丹麦已经连续淋了三天的雨,搭了两晚的帐篷,不是被冻醒就是被淋醒,脚已经被泡的发白,在德国再次淋了一上午的雨后,天空终于舍得放晴,心情也终于被晒干,在超市买完补给后,准备前往德国第二大城市-汉堡。 然而在驶行了10公里后,一个念头在我脑海里闪过,浑身突然一阵冷汗,我把钱包放哪了?

在超市买完东西后只是把钱包随手放在了单车后座上,想着啃完面包后再放回包里,吃完后就已经大脑缺氧,把这件事忘得一干二净!此时已经驶行了10多公里,一路的颠簸哪还有它的踪影?我就像当初丢失帐篷时一样,疯狂赶回去找,却又清楚的明白这已经不可能了!

刚刚被晒干的心情此刻又回到了被大雨袭击的状态,骑行1万多公里,钱包没了,车坏了,手机,相机,电脑能破的都破了,所幸护照还在,万一有一天我也掉了,还能有人把我捡起来并把我送回中国。

到达汉堡后,我整个人感到很焦虑,身体难受,不知道该去哪里,不知道接下来该怎么办,这么美丽的一座海港城市却无法让我的心情美丽起来。在星巴克霉了一整天后,我终于决定去外面走走,然而却真的不知道去哪,心里被掏空,整个人都好累,好沉。

我说,主啊,你要把我带向哪里?哪里是你给我的净土呢?我已经迷失了方向,我需要医治!

只有神时时刻刻都在聆听我的呼唤,我的哭诉,我的宿求。在街上漫无目的的游走了一段时间后,我遇到一群来自南美洲的伙伴,他们热情的围住我,问我来自哪里,骑行了多久,要去哪里。这些问题早已被问无数遍,那一刻我只是心不在焉的敷衍着,心累到不想说话,即使他们情绪高涨的惊呼也没有勾起我太大的兴致。在分别后几分钟,我们又在十字路口相遇,他们说前面有个啤酒节,并且热情的邀请我一同前往。

我无地可去,也想不到理由拒绝。这群人已经在德国生活了将近10几年,他们带着我骑车观光了这座城市,被他们的欢笑和真诚所感染,我的心情瞬间明朗了起来,他们问我晚上住在哪里,我说还不知道。他们说如果我不介意的话可以住在他们那里。有两个男人住在同一间公寓,他把他女儿的房间空出来给我,并且烹制了美味的晚餐.

他曾经是名工程师,可是他辞掉工作现在在一家单车店打工,他说钱赚的少一点没关系,每天为单车配好各种零件看到他们完整的回到主人手里就是他最快乐的事情,做自己最喜欢的事就是最好的工作。

他带我去到游乐场,我们一起吃了巧克力版的糖葫芦,一起乘坐了摩天轮和过山车,他说,有的时候我们应该就像孩子一样,吃颗糖,有个玩具就就可以快乐,把不好的事情挥散在空中。

想想人生有什么是过不去的呢?车架坏了可以换,手机破了可以修,钱包丢了命还在,可是很多时候我们沉浸在一些我们觉得过不去可是其实并没有什么大不了的时刻,任何一点小事都容易把我们击垮,我们高估了痛苦,也低估了生命的承受能力,退一步或者进一步你都能收获比呆在原地更多的惊喜。

 

盲人骑行者

在汉堡时联系到一个在不来梅的host,在他的简历上写到,

“我的第一次骑行是4000公里从土耳其到伊朗,我是个盲人,可是这并不能阻止我看这个世界”

当时的心里一惊,心想无论如何一定要见到他,也很幸运他接受了我的请求。到达门口后因为不知道如何停放单车,打电话给他说我到了,他说他马上下来!他就这样一个人摸索着进电梯出来迎接我,看着他蹒跚着准备开门,我上前握住了他的手,心里一酸,似乎看到了自己的爷爷。

他比我想象的更加幽默开朗,到家后就为我介绍家里的各个房间,并且为我准备晚餐,我说我有什么能够帮助你的,他说你就安心的休息洗个热水澡,这是我的地盘,你不用担心我。

他喜欢研制各种食谱,除了晚餐,他还自制了草莓冰淇淋。他和他丈夫住在这间公寓,他说这间公寓不大也不算小,他们不算有钱也不算穷,他们有点存款但是不多,他们很满意这样的生活状态。

谈及那次4000公里的单车骑行,他是和他的丈夫用的双人单车,他说那是他的第一次骑行,第一次在野外搭帐篷,第一次骑行那么长时间。在伊朗他甚至有三次被捕的经历,因为误打误撞进入核武器秘密基地,被当作间谍人员,被军方扣押在牢里直到真的相信他们是单纯的旅行者才把他们放出来。但是这一路他却更多的感受到了来自世界的关爱。

我问为什么决定这次骑行?

“就想看看这个世界” 他说。
晚餐过后他带着导盲犬Lassé 去散步,他挽着我的胳膊说,

“现在Lassé 没有在工作,所以他只是像一只普通的狗一样。”

“不在工作?难道它也有工作时长和假期吗?”我惊讶道。

“如果我把导盲具为它套上,它就知道自己是在工作了,为完全为我领路,但是现在我就想让它好好休息散下步”

 对于Lasse,他像对待一个朋友般关爱。

第二天,他和丈夫骑着双人单车带我游了不来梅这个城市,实际上,他们已经招待了几十个骑行者,而每次有骑行者来,他都会为他们做向导,有的时候他丈夫要工作,他便自己带导盲犬去带领客人,这座他无比熟悉的城市,他却一遍又一遍的像第一次一样介绍每一个来的朋友。哪个地方有雕塑,哪里有什么童话故事,他都如数家珍,黑暗的世界里,他的眼睛却通亮。

在骑行之前,他已经旅行过超过50个国家,他甚至自学了7门语言,并且每天在努力的练习打字,仅仅是一天的功夫,他已经记住了很多我教给他的中文。

问他为什么对语言这么热衷? 他说这是对当地人的一种尊重!他希望有更好的方式去融入他们,融入他们的文化和生活。

他看不见这个世界,可是没有什么能够阻止他看这个世界。

他和正常人没有什么区别,唯一的区别是他比正常人更积极努力的去生活,加倍的热爱这个世界,这个世界没有给他光,他却把光带给这个世界!

我们总是为自己创造太多的障碍来阻止我们的梦想。我没有钱所以我不去旅行,我没有时间所以我学不了外语,我从来没出过远门所以我害怕,我没有锻炼过所以我骑不了那么久的车⋯没有什么可以改变你,不是因为你不行,只是因为你懒!你懒的去学习,所以你把英语不好当作借口;你懒的去改变,所以你把脾气不好当作本性;你懒的去爱去信任,所以你把世界充满恐怖分子当做挡箭牌。

当生活扇了你一耳光,有的人再也不相信生活,有的人却把另一张脸凑过去。
今天我26,生活教会了我什么

每天我们很多人都在想人生是什么,可是却很少有人得到答案。

实际上当你思考人生更多的时候,往往是你最不如意的时候,

比如当你工作压力大的时候,你想问,人生是什么?为什么如此艰难?

当你被女朋友甩掉的时候,你问,人生是什么?为什么如此痛苦?

当你没有钱的时候,你问,人生是什么?为什么这么多人都过得比我好?人生是什么?问得好,但是我也没有答案,

所以,我决定开始这一次骑行,因为,我不想再这么累的思考人生是什么?我只想出发,什么都不想。

在开始这次骑行之前,我不知道会是什么样子,如何制定路线,如何找到营地,我应该吃什么住哪里?脑海中没有任何的框架,但是就一个想法,就是出发,去做!你会找到答案的,这不会比人生是什么这个答案更难吧。

当我第一晚露营在外的时候,我很害怕,很紧张,甚至,虫子爬过的声音都像是脚步声。一整晚我的心都跳的很快,我没有办法安然入睡。但是现在我可以在哪里我都能睡着,停车场,森林,草坪,电影院,天桥或者是陌生人的院子,人生告诉我,如果你害怕什么东西,就一遍遍的去做,直到你不害怕为止。当我丢失帐篷的时候,我哭了,因为我失去了唯一的避难所。现在我丢失了我的钱包,我仍然哭了,但是我却已看开,人生告诉我,如果你失去对你来说重要的东西,要么得到一个新的,要么忘掉它,同样的道理,对于所有你珍惜的事。

当我第一次骑行了130公里之后,我说,哇,我真棒!当我骑行了一天180公里之后,我说,哇,我不知道原来我可以骑这么远。当我骑行了一千公里的时候,我说,哇,我真的做到了,当我骑行了一万公里之后,我说,哇,我不知道原来我能走这么远,生活教会我永远不要为你自己设限,如果你不设限,这就永远没有限制。

我不去寻求人生是什么,但是答案却主动走向我。这趟旅行可以走到现在告诉我,人生是选择,选择你想要的,而不是你恐惧的。

在路上这些难忘的经历教会我,人生不仅是有勇气去经历,而是有勇气去遇见新的自己。

一天三欧元的预算教会我人生是珍惜珍惜你拥有的,满意,你选择的。

当我告诉别人我要去骑行美国的时候,人们对我说,不要这样做,实在太危险了,美国每个人都有枪,而且很多的抢劫犯和强奸犯,但是结果证明,美国人是我遇到的最友好的人

当我我告诉别人我要去骑行欧洲的时候,人们劝告我,不要这样做,欧洲太危险了,到处都是爆炸案,移民和穆斯林,但是结果却告诉我,欧洲是骑行最安全的国度。

当我告诉人们我要接下来要去骑行非洲,人们告诉我,不要这样做,非洲真的很危险,你不知道那有多危险。

我不想说这个世界有多安全,因为世界上就没有一个是绝对安全的地方,但是我们生活在这个世界上,我们需要去经历,我们需要用我们的眼睛我们的心起来感受,而不是用我们的耳朵,世界需要信任,人生就是爱,人生就是信任。

不要再想人生是什么了,去勇敢的经历它。
