Hi. My name is Sven Eckardt. I am 42. (2019)
My synonym CILTRAD means
Cycling Is Life The Rest Are Details
I am german, but I am hardly there anymore.
Since 12 years I am travelling. Mostly by bicycle, living as a nomad.
I cycled in West Africa, all across Europe, Middle East, from Europe across Asia to Australia. I did backpacking trips to New Zealand (Love that country!), Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Hawaii and the Philippines.
In May 2019 I started another big adventure. Cycling from Alaska to Argentina.
By end of November I crossed into Mexico, heading south...
I will be in Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego in March/April 2021.
I am living sustainable, upcycling and repurposing material for my travel gear.
I want to share not only the beauty of the places I visit, but also of the struggles.
I will show you how to repair gear and bike with what you have instead of buying new parts.
I also show, how to travel cheap, sustainable and most important I want to encourage you, to live your dream as well.
