17,000 miles - 36 US States - 181 days - 1 woman - 1 book. | In 2017, I travelled the US - alone and low budget. This motorcycle trip was not only a dream come true - it has changed my life. The people I met touched my heart. I want to give something back, I want to say THANK YOU. | "Once upon a bike" was first published in German in 2020. It's high time it found its way to the English speaking world. With the wonderful translator I've found, it could do so - buy your copy and make it happen!

Yes, I can be scary!

"No, we don't have coffee. Nor a coffee machine. A restroom?" The lady on the clinic counter leans back - do I smell bad? "Over there..." Boy, she seems relieved to get some distance between her and me.

It's a cold morning in Friona, Texas, and the person that looks at met from the mirror would have scared me, too. Better get out of here!

As I cross the clinic parking, I hear someone calling out for me: Monia Ann, an angel in disguise.

This wonderful lady brings me black gold - coffee! And not only coffee, but also a toothbrush (okay, accept that parts of me smell bad) and a complete necessity kit.

Plus, she's mega nice!! I spare her a thankful hug from smelling me - hopefully, she sees how happy I am.

Unfortunately, Monia Ann has to go back to work before the coffee hits and I can have a decent conversation - but I'll take her with me in my heart.

❤️ I'm happy and honored that Monia Ann supports the translation campaign for my travel book "Once upon a bike" - thank you, Monia Ann ❤️
