adventure preparation 42


This week I learned some video editing skills and started preparing for my new touring bicycle.

(This is a weekly blogging series, started before I did my first weeklong bicycle tour around the little belt on the Danish Baltic Sea Bicycle Route.  Now I want to do the whole Bicycle Route next year, and for that, I do some shorter tours to stay in training, study Danish, do other sports, sew some things, plan, map, buy, and worry. And blog about that every Sunday… it is an adventure already.)

This week I spent a lot of time reducing my 5+hours of video to 26 minutes. I am not happy with it yet, so this might change before I upload it. 😉 I have been making videos before, maybe you remember I made some sewing tutorials, but they were all based on pictures and not videos. So I learned a lot of new things, one of them is that I will not let the camera run for a whole tour. But just turn it on for nice views or something like that. That will also save a lot of battery. And of course, only use a few mounts. 😉


If nobody has a better idea, I will probably name my new youtube channel WanderlustFairy. I am not totally happy with it, so any suggestion would be appreciated.

I also started crocheting for my new touring bicycle, since the saddle and the grips will be the same as Leif has I could, with the rest I have to wait until I get it. Oh, I wish I would already have it, I can’t wait.

Today I went to the gym to use the bicycle, but I had to cut it short because I felt really light-headed. I hope my cold does not come back. 😦 Maybe it is because of my second shot for the tick-borne encephalitis vaccination which again stopped me from working out for 3 days.

My other weekly preparation:

I studied no Danish,

did 3 mornings with 4 yoga-flows,

1 evening training feet + stretch,

did 2 functional fitness for cyclists workouts,

went to the gym 1 time: 17.03 km in 45 minutes

and cycled 28.41 km in 1:51:22 h with Leif.

keep exploring and smiling
