I sold my wedding dress!

When we leave Germany, we only plan to take 2 carry-on knapsacks and our bikes. But living like minimalists while keeping 99% of our belongings in storage, is not something we want to do.

My Mom has asked me whether we’ve thought about health care and cancer scares while travelling. The answer is, of course! Our approach to our health is very hands on.
