In the spring of 2018, I went on a bicycle trip. Alone. For a month. In Brandenburg. It was the most terrifying thing I could think of before I left, but I was convinced that it was going to be good for me. It didn’t make me a better or more confident person like I had hoped it might, but it ended up being an unspectacularly spectacular experience, complete with wagyu cows, impromptu BBQs with strangers, and “brutal” sauna rituals.
The German version of The Trip – Der Trip – will be published by Jaja Verlag and be available starting March 1st. Der Trip can be preordered at major bookstores and on the Jaja Verlag website.
