Why Life in Travel?
Easy... because we travelled our whole life and because our life is fueled by travels (by bicycle)! We have seen so many places... that we do not have time to write about them all (and this is a huge problem), but we try to tell you as much as possible, without pretending to be exhaustive or objective: we write what we see and what we do, looking to be sometimes subjective and emotional, sometimes more descriptive and informative. We write because we like sharing information and emotions, because it's nice to find people who have our same passions.What kind of travellers are we?
We are low-cost bicycle travellers: there are no doubts about that! The less we spend, the more we can travel... the more we travel, the more we write about it and share... the more we share, the more we are happy...
It is an equation that finds its closure in your point of view: you are welcome to write us about your experiences, on how you travel by bike spending little...
So what are you waiting for, share your experiences with us.
In addition to being low-cost travellers, we love bicycle tourism and we have been practising it for decades. The perfect trip for us means discovering less known, remote and possibly less frequented places. If we have to get on a flight to stay away from home more than a week, well... do not come and look for us in a tourist village! Nature, adventure, wilderness feed our passion, and we love sharing this to our audience! Cycling is a great passion for us and bicycle trips play a fundamental role in our "curriculum" of travellers: New Zealand, Patagonia, South East Asia, the Andes, the Atlas and Drakensberg, the Balkans, Italy, Corsica... our biggest dream is now called the World by bike!
Explaining why and where Life in Travel was born is easy. In 2007 I left for a year to work in Australia on a Working Holiday: this site wanted to be a travel diary open to the world, mainly to friends and relatives, so that everyone could follow me in my adventures Down Under. Since then, after some highs and lows, I started throwing my biggest passions in the heap: mountain biking, mountains, photography and, above all, trips... today we have thousands of articles, thousands of visitors every day and a great desire to continue travelling and writing! Life in Travel, after years and years of publications, has become THE bicycle touring blog in Italy thanks to the support of many readers... now we'll try to open our world to English-speaking people even if we know that our English is not perfect... but we hope you'll appreciate the content more than the appearance!What will you find on Life in Travel?
On the Italian site there are around 4000 articles and very (very!) slowly - like when bicycle touring - we are starting to translate the most interesting into English, from some itineraries to more technical reviews. These are the main sections of our blog:
You will surely have noticed that there are some ads banner on Life in Travel. We write and take care of the site at our best, but this has a cost both in terms of time and money. In order to repay the operating expenses and keep travelling, we decided to include advertising and to accept working with companies and agencies. We will always try to integrate advertising in a way that does not become annoying for the navigation experience.
