kozan.gr: From Athens to the Nordkapp of Norway – Our fellow citizen, from Vythos (Dolos) Voiou, Georgios. Z. Tsioumas and his exciting travels (Photos) | Daily update on Kozani since 2001 –
He has been traveling with his motorcycle for the last 20 years and has “written” millions of travel kilometers. The reason for our compatriot, originally from Vythos (Dolo) Voiou, George. Z. Chiuma, who is currently making a very long trip, from Athens to Nordkapp, Norway. The 39-year-old crane operator at the port of Piraeus, at COSCO Shipping, started his journey on June 30, taking the boat from Patras to Ancona. Today Sunday July 3rd is located in Flensburg, Germany, will pass through Denmark and then make its way to Sweden. If all goes well, that is, according to planning, George should return to Athens July 22. He drives one Suzuki bandit 1250with which he travels approximately 600 km per day, while the total distance of the trip amounts to 12,600 km.
Speaking to kozan.grabout the reasons for making this particular trip, he told us: “As Mountaineers have Mount Everest, we motorcyclists have the Nordkapp in Norway.” George loves traveling with his motorcycle. It is for him away of life, way of expression & freedom, while through wandering he gets to know new civilizations and cultures. Of course, such trips as this particular one, in addition to the financial costs (4000-4500 euros are calculated for the expenses for the route in question) hide many difficulties as well as risks. Physical fatigue, bad weather conditions, etc.
Every trip hides images, smells, feelings and George already, with the trips he has made, feels full, however he does not stop setting goals and facing new travel challenges.
