a stone starts rolling

Good day travelers, backpackers, dreamers – friends!

My very first post shall inform you about the things which are coming up in the near future. Since July ’17 I started to reflect and question my own whishes, needs and dreams of the future. One dream, which I ever had was traveling, traveling and even more traveling! I wanted to see animals in their wild life, to get to know as many different cultures and people until I can’t count them anymore. But, when a heartbreaking moment hit me, I was stuck in a circle of thoughts about everything to come.

The answer

The dream was to travel with my golden Retriever boy ‘Woodstock – Woody’ as far and much as we can. My first plan was to travel by car, airplane or ship, but I recognized that all this vehicles have some sort of barrier, named glas and speed, between the nature and passangers or driver.

The speed prevents from seeing all (seeming) unimportent things, without paying attention on them. The glas on the other hand prevents from smelling, feeling and hearing such things. Therefore, I decided to fulfill my dream a bit different and “closer” than before. With “closer” I mean, that I dont want to past places with 50,60 or 70 km/h, but to get to know these sort of places and impressions just as it’s often happening at big places like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Big Ben in London or the Great Wall of China. The answer to the question, how I want to travel with a 30 kilogramm dog is pretty easy: by bicycle.

The plan

During my identification stage, I began to write my very first book, which just seemed to flow out of my fingers. Anyhow, I realized that this may be it, which I always had to do with! So why shouldn’t I combine it? I started to plan, what I may need for journeys and simultanously writings, but also which requirements are needed for me and Woody to sustain such travels from thousands of kilometers. Here is where you can find an Equipmentlist.

You can read full particulars on the page ‘the idea’.

The journey is the reward

You can see, that I m not aiming to an accurate goal, but a lot of subgoals which are made by the different travel stages. Two bigger and truly mentionable Stages will be anounced and described very soon, but be sure that I also will add comments, photographies, thoughts and comments to brief journeys.

While I am researching my required (base-)equipment and starting to put in sponsoring-enquiries, I will inform you less about planned travels, but more about the so-far-reached and purchased equipment. Also I want to give you small insights into my first book, which will be released very soon.

The first book

My first book is not a guidebook, 10-steps-lifeplaner or live-better-broker. On the one hand, It shall give an opportunity to the reader to question themselves and the until-now-achieved, or -wanted and on the other hand it shall improve the abilty of a better appreciation and listening of the self, surroundings and perceptions.

You can read full particulars on the page ‘the book’.

What is coming up next?

I will keep on training me and Woodstock, aswell as trying to get different sponsors interested in my travel project. My aim is to start a journey over 600 to 800 kilometers as soon as possible. As matters stand it might happen in early ’18.


So, stay tuned!
