Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbour.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

Why are we travelling by bicycle?
It is environmentally friendly, sportive and we can travel at an adequately slow speed. Furthermore, we are very close to people and nature as much as we are independent and can travel off the beaten track.
While travelling by bike we would like to discover world’s diversity by getting to know it’s amazing people and beautiful nature. Besides that, we would like to gather good ideas, positive experiences and life philosophies from people we meet (see “impulses“).

After 3 years of cycle travelling overland from Germany to New Zealand we would like to say:
– THANK YOU –
Every day we met people along our way, even in the most remote place on this earth.
Every day these people have helped us. Every day presents have been given to us.
A smile, a greeting, a tea, a meal, a shower, a roof for the night, a hint, a thought, an inspiration, some drinking water, a ride, a helpful item, a translation …and so much more!
A tremendous amount of people have been part of this journey, have been and are a mosaic piece in a vast picture which will accompany us for the rest of our life. Thank you so much!
“Thank you” in all the languages we came across:
