... please do tell!!!
What kind of bicycle, road, off road ... brand?
Speaking of bike riding, today is Bastille Day in France and the first real mountain stage in the Pyrenees Mountains of the Tour de France! You can watch it on Versus if you get it.
Why not, i might just tell my happy story
It's just i met my future wife by pure accident. While i was at work, there was big delay on updating information from our client, so for a while nothing to do. Was really bored and browsed through Asian related sites, one place caught my attention. That's where i found one interesting person to talk with, it was something like culture exchange chatting at the beginning, but it continued for about a year
That's when i thought, why not visit Japan, since it became really interesting and i didn't have vacation for quite some time. Also i wanted to meet that person, not just talk on internet. My sister was also interested in visiting Japan. There were no good offers from travel companies, so i offered that person to be our guide and we could prepare our own route. Well, i certainly didn't expect this turn of events, but meeting in real life changed quite a lot and already during second week we decided to marry
I couldn't stay in Japan right away, so we were living in Estonia for about 2 years, then company where i was working started making many changes that i was really not happy with. So my wife told me, why not move to Japan already
I regret only one thing, i didn't study Japanese properly back in Estonia, now i'm having problems to catch up
So i'm yet another living evidence, that internet can actually bring people together
As for bicycle, i don't have anything fancy here in Japan. I bought foldable one, Dahon brand. Quality is quite good and comfortable. I'm mostly using it for city and parks.
