How to get the new book

During the Verkami´s campaign  the book had a 20% discount, as I have to reward those who trust blindly on me, the author, but you can now order on this page.  All my books are distributed worldwide.
Here some of the reviews already received the book:
“I received your wonderful book and I really enjoyed it with your cherished intuitions. I am extremely proud to have been involved in this project.“ (Susana A.)

“The design, images and the general impression could not be better. The first pages have already made me smile and reflect on life … I will ration so that it can taste good!“ (Judith L.P.)

“I think the best book travel (even it is not a propel travel book) you’ve written. For me one of my favorite words is essence and certainly you have transmitted, through letters, the essence of who you are and how you see life.“ (Victor M.)

A plane called Biciclown

I asked the Vueling company to check their bicycle transportation policy to provide better treatment to those users. Not sure if they do, but at least they have said they will try.
Having a plane called biciclown, does not entitle me to fly on that plane for free, or any of the company.
For this advertising campaign I have not received a single euro, but who has proposed biciclown´s story to Vueling have won a ticket.
Not all our actions have a direct impact on us.
If someone takes a picture with the plane Biciclown and a clown nose I will give him/her one of my books.
Here the entire collection.

I’m writing two more books. It is as if I had parkinson on my hands and could not stop typing. One will be a digital, free, with tips and ideas for trips by bike book. I just need to find a platform to upload and give it for free. Something difficult.
The other book is about my past five years on the road. From Japan 2011 to Brazil 2015.

Happy New Year and Merry book to which you have it.

Until Dec 12th we have to run to reach the final and third goal in Verkami. In a few days we got the first and the second one.

Here we explain what we mean about goals.

This is the project that has gathered more supporters of all I have sent in Verkami, more than 200, but to reach the ultimate goal I believe we need about 300.

The days are of incalculable beauty on this island, productive in terms of work, but relaxing. As the same speed than the waves reach sweetly the shore on the coast.

TVE, Turn your Christmas on, but my message off

When TVE request your participation in a television program for Christmas and offered to pay you for an interview passage, and even take your family to the program, worth pausing to consider the proposal.Just in exchange for no money just advertising my project. I am reluctant, because I know that my message can be handled, cut off and fade. Rejecting the offer to fly to Madrid (I will arrive to Spain bike in the future, not by plane) and send my self-interview answering questions.
When the show airs and I see video editing my worst fears are confirmed. An artificially sweetened version of my project, forgetting the essence of it is emitted.

Here a version that I have done.

A plane carrying the name of Biciclown

I did not answer e-mail because it smelled like spam, like claiming that you’ve won an inheritance but must send money to advance the proceedings. An airline (I did not know it existed), Vueling,  offers me that one of its aircraft bear my name.
But it’s true.
Ummm, I do not know. So many years traveling at the speed of butterflies and now a plane can carry the name of biciclown. I do not know. I used this aircraft around the world, of course, and acknowledge its usefulness.
As I think of it I ask the company to review its policy slightly bicycle carrier. Maybe at least that plane named Biciclown, could take cyclists for free.
I’m still thinking.

All this fruit of hard work, night and day, and that has forced a stop on a beautiful island in Brazil where I hit the computer keys with the same relish as which Oscar Peterson pounded the piano.

According to statistics from previous experiences in Verkami and three other projects we had fundraising by the crowd, with 150 people who support this new venture we have achieved.

Only 150 people, Will you be one of them? On December 10 we’ll know.

“Do not travel to escape from life, travel for life not to escape”

In more than ten years of touring the world I have had to hold some special events away from the bar and friends. It has not been my last birthday I’ve enjoyed in the city I have visited in my world tour more times: Rosario. And not by chance but because in my living days they are very  dear to me. There I also again offer my last show, and has been in the same place and the same people I did in the year 2001, on my first visit to Rosario.

In this newsletter in addition to these stories you will find the opportunity to take free my latest documentary Spreading Happines. Read on and if your liking, share the content on your social networks.

I just met again Matias, the director of several of my documentaries, whom I first met in Cameroon in 2005. The reunion was in Bariloche (Argentina) and to celebrate it, the Calbuco volcano has erupted. A celebration of nature that had covered with ashes the lake Nahuel Huapi.

After a new show in Chile, in a little town called Chenqueco, I returned to Argentina. The winds and the first rains begin to harden the way south to where Karma proceeds at a leisurely pace.

Yes, again in Chile. In this part of the continent I’ll be dancing between Chile and Argentina the coming months. I entered Santiago and I have met again with some old friends. Some are characters in my first book Miles of Smiles. What an incredible experience. I have returned to pedal 100 kms per day without too much effort. Something that long ago could not do and that allows me to continue extending the red line on the world map. Red line because of the red clown nose. In the capital of Chile there I could do another show.
