What’s up

Hey guys!

if you want to read up on the walk, you can click on News or just use the map above in order to navigate between posts. All 400+ entries are on there, starting with the first blog post I ever made.

If you just want to get a general idea about the whole thing, you could refer to The Plan, and in case you have any specific questions, make sure to check out my extensive FAQ section (in three languages).

Another thing you can do is download the Google Earth file. It is broken down into daily tracks and shows some landmarks and a vast amount of photographs.

Or you could just go and read one of my books.

Meanwhile, I did return to The Longest Way in 2010 and in 2012, and I made another video about it.

And I do have some social media accounts:

YouTube - I post often when I am on the road and not so often when I am at home.
Twitter - I tend to focus on China here.
Facebook - I try to post once a day, mostly things from the road.
Instagram - not sure what I am doing with this.

parting (for now)

Today was our last day in this beautiful part of the world. We got on a plane: And flew over the desert and the mountains. Parts of the land looked like the ones I had walked through before: Then we reached Ürümqi. We came in low over the city: And we crossed the exact same […]
