Last meeting with my scout group!

Yesterday I hade the last meeting with my scout group, Da Kurkuts, before I go! We made our own hamburgers and grilled them outside. On the picture is one of my scout leaders, Anna.



I have also started packing my apartment, and it starts to feel really empty even though we haven’t moved that much stuff. The positive thing is that it goes pretty fast!

Not many days left!

Another interview!

Last thursday I was interviewed by Audrey Erath! There were no specific article in mind, but more like an interview to get to know me and learn about my trip before I go so that she may write an article in the future when the opportunity strikes! She also took the picture I am using as header of this blog right now. It was a nice interview with many perspectives!

You may check her blog out (swedish) at the link below:

The start of an adventure!

Hello, and welcome to my blog. It is still not finished, and there will be many changes, but this will be the place to go during the oncoming year to follow my bicycle trip from Sweden to Japan!

First, a small introduction of me!
My name is Jackiie Samuelsson and is at this time 23 years old. I am living in Västerås, Sweden, and have been hiking more or less my whole life. I have been traveling a lot but never in a close-to-culture kind if way as this bicycle trip will be!

A little more than a year ago, I decided to quit college. At almost the same time as I was searching for a job, I got the idea to do this trip. Since then I have been working towards my goal by earning money and knowledge. Today, it is just some hours more than eleven days until I will start my trip, though it feels as the last year went by fast!

I will try to update this blog when I have internet access, which could be from every day to every week. Before the trip I will fix the design, and also post about the gear, the chosen path and other relevant info!

Welcome to join me at my first big adventure!
