Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Paula and Lorenz Eber are a married couple that biked around the world with their daughters.

  • 2.

    Traveled over 9,000 miles and passed through 24 countries on four different continents.

  • 3.

    Paula has had asthma since she was two years old; when she first met Lorenz, she could barely run around the block.

  • 4.

    Cycling around the world was her way of saying, "This disease doesn't get me down; I can do what I want."

  • 5.

    She originally pursued a career in psychology, but later realized her true passion was traveling and meeting new people.

  • 6.

    Lorenz says that if you just go through the "steps" (college, partner, house, kids), you end up looking around, wondering, "Now what?"

  • 7.

    The couple says that life is dangerous, but you can't be afraid of it; "you might as well live it."

  • 8.

    Both believe that our generation has more opportunities than ever before; we just have to break out of our bubbles and try new things.
