Jörg Schmiedel

My name is Jörg. I was born and raised in Germany and spent most of my time after university working abroad as a language teacher. I always had a thing for changing places but rather late in a young man’s life – in 2016 at the age of 32 – I discovered bike travel and immediately took to it like rubber to the road. The following years, I rode some 80,000 kilometers in more than 60 countries on a very low budget and enjoyed the simplicity of life. Now it’s time to give back the hospitality I have received while travellng and share some skills and experiences… happily as a Tour Leader for ExperiencePlus!
