Nothing better than looking at an empty inbox. Unfortunately, I was a looooooooooooooong way from that. So I spent all day replying to emails. Then I went out and had dinner in a vegetarian place next door: The food was perfect: good and cheap. Still, I missed the days when I was just walking around […]

wind down

My friends left, and I moved to a quiet hotel room: I was going to stay in Prague until Saturday, when I was booked for another presentation in Plauen. Relax, wind down. Get back on top of my email inbox. Update the blog. Read. Swim. Eat. Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.

air + greens + water

By now we felt as though there was a certain need to detox, so we went outside and actually had a look at the city: Prague was nice. I ordered a salad as a late afternoon lunch: Then we went to a sauna that was located on a boat floating in the Vltava: You could […]

speaking in Prague

Came to the Kolem Světa festival today to give a presentation: It was my third time here, and it was fun as always. There were some hick-ups with my computer, but there was also some exotic dancing (not by me), and the audience was just great. Then I ate, and then I slept. Later that […]

the bishop

A long car ride later… …and I was in Prague. I wasn’t there by myself, and I wasn’t there without drinks, either: That night I ended up with my friends, having overpriced alcohol, looking at women taking their clothes off: Not the worst kind of life.

pay to be alone

Rode a train to Munich today. I needed to go to Prague for my next presentation on Saturday, and I was going to go there with a friend who was driving from Munich. My train ticket was so cheap I upgraded to First Class, which meant a little more space and a lot less people […]

I think the time to consider ourselves “above politics” is over. When the fringes of society are making themselves heard on the internet, then the people in the center can’t just stay quiet and pretend their silence is loud enough. So I decided to become Donald Trump’s bigliest fan on Twitter: It’s simple. The man […]

Haven’t been doing much walking lately. Sometimes I feel like I’m in limbo: between presentations, between continents, between yesterday and tomorrow. So I went and took a walk with Feivel today: Tried to clear my head. Failed.

Went to the city today, and when I was there, I decided to have lunch in a food court: Sometimes I wonder about the authenticity of foreign food. I mean, I used to think Chinese food in Germany was just that: Chinese food. Until I went to China, where the food turned out to be […]

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.
