This is the blog of Nicky Pallas. I’m from New York, and I sometimes can be called a photographer, a bike messenger, an iPhone dealer, a baseball umpire, an ex-Marine, but above all, a CouchSurfer! The experiences I’ve had through hosting & surfing & meeting people from all over the world through the CouchSurfing website has changed my life, and inspired many travels of mine, including my current adventure!

I am currently biking across Europe, since May 21st, 2012. I started in Istanbul, Turkey, at the very point where Europe meets Asia. And I will ride west until I finish at Cabo de Roca, the westernmost point of Europe, in Portugal.
