Woke up in my tent, and hell yes, I was still alive: And except for my friends (the cows) having disappeared, everything was just the way it should be: It took me almost an hour to pack up all my stuff: But after that I was back on the road again: It wasn’t really any […]
When I left the little town of Uzynagash in the early morning, I was feeling weak. My allergies had returned, and I was still struggling with a case of bad stomach. It was okay though. I went to a pharmacy to get some meds, then I went to one of these shops to get a […]
I left Yegbakir’s family after breakfast, and when I did, it seemed as though the Caboose had found a new friend: I walked down village roads: It was neither too hot nor too cold, and everything was quiet: It was very nice. I felt perfectly happy, and there was only a short moment of irritation […]
I woke up knowing that I would dance today. But when I looked at my foot I didn’t really feel like doing anything: I left anyway. With my iPhone gone, I didn’t have any mobile internet anymore. I owned another phone, a Samsung that I used solely as a pocked camera. So I went to […]
Okay, so I finally did it. I got up, gathered all my things and rolled the Caboose out from her storage and onto the street. Then I said good-bye to the good people from the hostel I had been staying at: Only Sarkozy (that yellow-eyed demon on the left) kept ignoring me. I suspect that […]
I was going to leave today. Load up the Caboose and walk, walk, walk. Promises had been made. Promises that I would leave. Leave. Leave. Finally, there would be one less German in Almaty, one less half-Hungarian in Almaty. One less one-eighth Russian/Armenian/Swiss-French-whatever in Almaty. Yet leave I did not. Instead I went and had […]
Yes, the rain had come: I decided it would be my last day of therapy: Wanted to go to an outdoor store and ended up in a shop full of guns: Bought a knife: The handle was supposedly made from birch wood, and I immediately fell in love with it. I also got some additional […]
Just a few more days of physiotherapy for me. I didn’t feel quite there yet. My back was better, yes. But it wasn’t 100% fine. I figured it didn’t need much more therapy, it just needed time. And I wasn’t supposed to lift heavily. So I went and had a nice club sandwich: Then I […]
Today I saw rain come to Almaty: It wasn’t quite there yet, but it would be here soon. I could only hope that I wouldn’t get too much rain when I was walking. Sure, the Caboose was waterproof, so there wouldn’t be much of a problem there, but my backpack and my camera bags weren’t. […]
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.
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.
