Radu Păltineanu, #CycleTheAmericas - The Story (so far)

Back in 2015, I was just about to graduate in Software Engineering from a top Canadian University, but also had plans to marry someone, plans which didn't work in the end. So, at that point in my life, decisions had to be made, and since travel and adventure had been the biggest passion of my life, I decided to embark on a longer and adventurous project; crossing the Americas by bike.

So after all the preparations were made, my cycle tour through the Americas started on August 5th, 2015 in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, one of the northernmost points of the Alaskan Peninsula. The idea was to be the first Romanian to cycle the Americas from one extreme to the other.

Since then, I have cycled almost 21.000 km through 17 different countries and territories, covering so far all continental countries of North and Central America as well as 6 countries/territories of South America.

Having started with a very low budget (about 1.400$), I had to rely on people's hospitality and sleeping for the most part in the tent (or different crazy places like churches, prisons, police stations, etc). So, if I got so far is due to people that helped me with donations and random hospitality.
This is probably the coolest thing I learnt from traveling; that in the end, the world we are living in, is not as crazy as the media describes it, yet it still is a very humane and hospitable place.
