Starting May 2018 - Paris >Amsterdam > Switzerland-Italy-Greece-ect...

Hi,  

First thing is add me on Facebook as its easiest to keep in touch on messenger.  www.facebook.com/aaronscottbullock

Seeking bicycle touring companion for my first European adventure... 

Lots of experience in western USA in all kinds of weather and terrain. 

My tour is very open ended and malleable so.... 

I'm a scuba instructor from Hawaii whom needs to experience different cultures and cuisine so if you're up for an adventure and want to explore the world.. I'll probably go on from Switzerland Italy,  Greece to who knows Africa or Kragystan and Beyond . 

 

Only God knows where the wind will blow me.......

I got my scuba cert in hawaii

I got my scuba cert in hawaii. Lahaina. ;)

You could do a lot better than the rhine. Ride through the eifel, across (maybe along a bit) the mosel, through the pfalz, sneak across the corner of france, and hump it through the black forest, then pick up the rhine at waldshut-tiengen, and take the beautiful ahre river into switzerland. Much more interesting than the rhein - when the rhine is not full traffic in the middle stretch (duesseldorf to mainz), it's often just riding a dike through cottonwood trees for ages. Nice for a while, but it gets old. It's not all bad, but it's a last ditch route for me anymore.

If you want some even better riding, and want to go further east, I could give you a fantastic route through a bunch of germany's best landscapes, getting you to switzerland via the swiss and austrian rhine, or via bodensee to the ahre again. All marked bike routes, and some of my favorites.

Sincerely,

Roy

PADI Divemaster here! If you

PADI Divemaster here! If you are in Bulgaria between June and September 10th and want to see a bit of the Black Sea marine life - drop me a message, come to Sozopol (this is the diving capital of Bulgaria) and you'll get one free dive from me, equipment is included in the dive :) And I'm planning some trips as well, but I'm not experienced at all. But do want to go to Turkey, then cross to Cyprus (some of the best dive spots in the world are there, including Zenobia, probably the best shipwreck), then want to cross to Israel on a ferry and go to Jordan and Egypt and dive in the Red sea.

Amazing,  I hope the wind

Amazing,  I hope the wind blows me to Sozopol...  If so I definitely desire to dive with you.  

 

The Red Sea is a breathtaking area to dive.  I was a divemaster in Israel for three months. 

 

Do you have bicycle touring plans this summer?

I'll work this summer as DSD

I'll work this summer as DSD leader and dive shop manager, no cycling being planned. Apart from occasional 1-2 minutes rides underwater every day as my boss bought a 2nd hand bicycle and will put it at a designated dive spot as an atraction for novice divers.

After the tourist season (probably the end will be around 15th of September)... only the Almighty knows where the winds will blow me :)
