Without any experience of either cycling or adventures, there were many who doubted that he would make it. But the greatest defeat awaited him just a year before he would begin his journey. Emil broke his lower back in a skiing accident and woke up in a hospital bed with screws in the back and an uncertain future. In one year he went from learning how to walk again, to sit in a bike seat and start cycling from Stockholm.
To Emil adventures are not about doing the craziest things, climb the highest mountain or ride the longest stretch. "For me, adventure is getting to places I would otherwise never have ended up at and let myself be surprised and inspired by people's stories”.
Emil has a strong belief in human kindness and strive to see the similarities between people rather than their differences. With joy, humor and his body language as a tool to communicate Emil met with people all over the world, rich or poor, grown-ups or kids. "If I should stay in a tent high up in the mountains far away from civilization I gladly share a pot of tea with a shepherd instead of sitting alone".
