Human Hunting in Paris

  When I visited Paris last November, I already sold some of my headbands  in two cities : Compiègne and Amiens. In Compiègne, I sold my stuff right next to a market. I had nice chats with some people from the city and even got two apples for free. But after not even one hour…

Camping between Skyscrapers

On my trip around the world, my first night in a tent was not in the nature and not between trees. It was in a mega city. In an occupied street. In the business district of Hong Kong. Between Skyscrapers. It all began in Indonesia, when I realized that my next destinations Australia and New…

Massive Discount for Travelers

When I travelled to Chile from New Zealand, I had my first Jetlag ever (after 100+ flights) . My departure time in Auckland was 4.15pm and after a 11:47 hours flight, I arrived in Santiago at  11.35am. On the same day. Makes no sense to me . It´s like a time machine. Back to the…

The Hammock Boat in the Amazon (II)

At 8 am they started. To upload the boat. With everything. Food, TVs, tools, beer, beer, beer, sometimes even cows and other animals. These boats are the only way of transport in that region. They are stopping several times along the river to unload and to provide the people living there with necessary products from…

The Hammock Boat in the Amazon (I)

I was in Patagonia, South of Chile, when I´ve heard the fist time about the boat. A girl I´ve met trough couchsurfing told me, that a friend of her was traveling with it. With that local boat. Full of hammocks. 7 days into the heart of the Amazon. Unfortunately she couldn´t tell me more  but it was…

Tune your scooter!

The best way to get around in Indonesia is definitely a scooter. The longer you rent it, the cheaper it gets per day. For a month I payed 1€/day, for two weeks 2€/day. Same same, but totally different. So, as soon as you got your scooter, you should “tune” it. This is what you need: A scooter…

Longueil-Annel; The Ghost Town

After 119km driving and 3 nights wild camping in the waterways of France, a part of the ship engine broke in the lock of Janville in Longueil-Annel. The material damage was estimated at approximately €5000 by german mechanics a few weeks ago. That was more than the cost of the boat itself. Dirk already wanted to…

Pick ups in Southamerica

Hitchhiking on the back of a Pick up Truck is illegal in Southamerica as well as in Germany. The only difference is, that the people do not really care about that fact. Especially if you´re in the middle of nowhere, and that´s where you are most of the time, when you are traveling  in the…

A walk along the west coast

    Last week, I wanted to “cross a country” from south to north by walking. I organized a couchsurfing event to do it, but the weather forecast said 70% probability of rain and thunderstorm, that´s why I cancelled it. However,  the weather was beautiful and sunny that day…. The next day, unfortunately no one had…

Hongkong – The City of Contrasts

Hongkong. I didn´t know anything about this city except the fact that they can use Google and China can´t. Honestly it was not even part of my planned trip. When you book an around-the-world-ticket you usually can only flight in one direction and when you look on the map, Hong-Kong is geographically “behind” Denpasar (Bali,Indonesia)…

Is that real?

Yes. These pictures were taken by me while traveling in Indonesia. This country is the biggest archipelago of the world with, regarding to LAPAN,  totally 18,307 islands; 8,844 of them have been named. But to see this small magical island you have to zoom in a little bit in google.maps . It´s part of an unspoiled national park 5 miles…
