Cycling from Iraq to Sweden

This is a tale of a long road home, and the struggles, victories and lessons within. The places and the people encountered on the way anchor a narrative of inner travel, character transformation and the cardinal questions in life.


All are welcome on this journey - as readers, supporters or even as travel companions - to follow, to shape and to live the story as it unfolds.


Bilbo: Can you promise that I will come back?
