Hitchhiking the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain to Morocco

This summer some very pleasant circumstances kept me in Europe way longer than expected (and my mind away from writing). Anyway, after two good months in Spain and Portugal finally I reached the Strait of Gibraltar, 15 km stormy sea that separate me from my dream of hitchhiking through Africa. There are several ferries going from […]

Hitchhiking at Peage in France

How I found out that French cheese tastes best after sleeping on it

On my way hitchhiking from Lyon to Strasbourg I ended up in a random village called Chemaudin. Until dawn I tried my luck thumbing without a sign at the local péage (the toll gate at the highway ramp). Quickly I had to find out though that all the cars stopping for me would go towards […]

Cape 2 Cape – The Adventure begins

My next big adventure has begun. Cape 2 Cape, hitchhiking from the North Cape to Cape Town, going all the way through Europe and then all the way through Africa. Last year I finished my trip hitchhiking 45.000 km all around Asia, and now I’ve spend the winter up in the Arctic. It was an […]

Oh Myanmar, why I am totally in love with you

Dear Myanmar, within the three weeks we spent together last year I had the honour to get to know you a little and I have to say I’m totally in love with you. You are just magical with all your golden pagodas, your super-friendly people and adventures waiting on every corner. You are so rich in culture […]

Northern Lights in Ersfjord, Norway

When Angels are Painting – Seeing the Northern Lights in Norway

The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are a natural phenomenon that can paint the night sky with unearthly, surreal colours. There are several myths about the Northern Lights. One of them says you should avoid waiving, singing or whistling at the Northern Lights. People used to believe that the spirits would come down and take […]

Hitchhiking in Thailand

Thailand off the beaten path

I never wanted to go to Thailand. It’s just such a typical tourist destination crowded with foreigners getting wasted at full moon parties or sex tourists abusing young girls. So, not my kind of country. I thought so at least. But when I ended up in Thailand on my way to India, I quickly realized […]

The beautiful village of Reine in Lofoten, Norway

Lofoten – Norway’s hitchhiking paradise

When in Norway there is one place you have to visit, and that’s the Lofoten Islands. A beautiful Island group in Northern Norway with rocky mountains coming out of the sea like massive sea monsters. It’s famous for it’s picturesque landscape with deep fjords and splendid surf beaches. My plan was to take the ferry from […]

Rout Traveling around Asia

Lessons I learned from travelling in 2015

Last year I finished my trip hitchhiking from Azerbaijan and Iran to Myanmar and through India back to Europe. I travelled 45.000 km mostly with hitchhiking all around Asia and visited 20 countries in one year. It was an amazing trip full of incredible adventures, breathtaking moments and heart-warming encounters. And after a short visit back […]

Chillin in Longyearbyen, Svalbard

Exploring the beauties of Arctic Svalbard without tour

From the moment I first heard about Svalbard I got captivated by the idea of travelling to the northernmost settlement in the world 1000km North from Norway and deep in the Arctic. And when I found out that the flights up there are dirt cheap, I booked my flight from Oslo beginning of September and […]
