: grow a seed of an
to a tree
vision, route, bike, bass: the plan
doing something nobody has ever done before
rediscover my relationship with my double bass
search for the musical spark inside
taking this wooden giant with me
becomes an uncatchable dream
of my capability of realizing this idea arise
questions come up:
Do I have enough equipment?
How does it feel to travel alone?
Do I have all the skills I need?
to proof myself:
I can do it
in a hasty winter-bikepacking trip
experiencing my physical and mental limits
I got what I need: will, equipment, skill.
I could start in this moment.
I will start this summer
the idea grows with every day
to wake up in a forest, no one who dictates your path
no route planned, no dependency stopping
space for creativity, exploration and silence
is holding me back.
only doubts and problems:
I’m stuck in my dreams
is born after a juicy winter depression,
accompanied by disorientation and self doubts:
doing a longer bike trip
to overcome my resistance for creating
and get to know myself and europe better
an personal incident releases all frustration
all doubts spoken out
a wave of encouragement
builds up the energy to finally realize:
dreams can come true,
if you make them reality
I believe in myself.
a new chapter begins:
Uprides is born
a video in the sea
sounds in a cave
bass in the forest
the pencil never rests
all my emotions flow into texts
problems turn into solutions
all the time my potential was hidden
I stop doubting and start creating
I know now: this will be my summer
the beauty of nature
by unknown people
lining out my idea on paper
When should I take which steps to turn my dream into reality?
Which problems need to be solved? What is not under my control?
I change my initial plan
from riding to Northcape
to riding to Budapest
to have a route that is shorter
to be able to travel with the bass
