Today it has been one year since I started my journey from Ulm, Germany!
So far I have travelled roughly 46000km, visited 32 countries and crossed borders 54 times.
Things have not gone totally as planned, because I wanted to have this one year celebration in Bali, but now it will be held on a surgery table in Germany (will have second hand surgery today)…
During the past year I have seen some truly amazing places, met wonderful people and tasted many different kinds of food. I have also met a lot of other travellers from all around the world.
One of the most commonly asked question is “what has been the most amazing place?”.
It is impossible to answer this question, but I can mention a few places which are on the top of my mind at the moment:
Maybe the biggest surprise to me has been the hospitality of the people everywhere. If I would trust what news are telling, I would not dare to go anywhere.
Has this travel changed me as a person? I think people who know me could give the best answer, but I think I am more relaxed, happier and more open to meet new people.
My bike has been working well, only few minor things have caused some problems. Unfortunately my accident in Java, Indonesia left my bike to a quite a bad condition, but it is still fixable 🙂
Unfortunately I will have a couple of months mandatory break now to get my hand and bike fixed, but journey will continue 🙂
I will keep on writing blog updates during my healing period, so check this page every now and then 🙂
