having a ball

Every morning I go out for a little walk, up here in space. Of course I need to put on a space suit and gravity boots and leave the space station first, but that’s okay. I walk the exact same distance every morning, 4.5 kilometers. There’s a family of Canada geese, or space geese, around […]

prints from Iran

Those of you who have ordered their TLW prints, shirts, mugs, or popsockets – I hope they bring you joy. My long-time editor sent me a picture of the green TLW pixel travel mug he got, saying he loved it and that the lid wasn’t a completely tight fit but that this wasn’t really a […]

prints from Turkmenistan

Bradley Nowell used to smoke two joints in the morning. I eat two bananas. And I make tea. There’s a glass pot in which I brew it, and then there’s a thermos from which I add hot water. Thus is the Persian way. Or that of the Azeri. I used to be into green or […]

prints from Tajikistan

It took me a while to figure out whether I wanted to make these photos available here or not. After all they were from Tajikistan, a country that I had never walked through, having spent a week there while waiting for my Turkmen visa in the summer of 2017. So was Tajikistan part of The […]

fabulous theropods

Just wanted to let you know that I’m not alone up here. These two are with me: They wish it to be known that they probably had lips to cover their teeth. And, being basically very large (and very dangerous) ostriches, they probably also had feathers. They had them not in order to be able […]

The Longest PopSocket

I just got done with Game Of Thrones. My verdict: watching GOT is like having sex with a very attractive (and rather kinky) person who gets tired about half-way through and ends up denying you an orgasm. But seriously, it was awesome for about four seasons, then it started to slump (yet it still had […]

prints from Uzbekistan

Space is nice. The only thing that’s been a little bit difficult is the breathing. There is just not that much air in the cosmos. And so I am up here, floating. Meanwhile, the Uzbekistan album is online: I spent 102 days walking through Uzbekistan, from Tashkent on December 14th 2016 to the time I […]

prints from Kyrgyzstan

People have been asking when I will return from space. The answer is: I don’t know. What I do know is that the Kyrgyzstan album just went online: I didn’t spend much time walking through this country – a mere 9 days and 130km. But I went there a few other times before and after […]

prints from Kazakhstan

I’ve been adding stuff to the page where you can get prints from The Longest Way: As of now, the albums from China and Kazakhstan are both online. 5510km through China, 1180km through Kazakhstan: Sometimes it’s hard to believe. That it ever even happened.

What’s up

Hey everyone!

if you want to read up on the walk, you can click on Blog or just use the map above in order to navigate between posts. All 1300+ 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 have returned to The Longest Way. Here's a little animated video about it the way so far:

Oh, and I keep a few social media accounts:

YouTube - I post videos from the road whenever I can
Twitter - Have been using this one a lot lately
Facebook - I mean I have one, but meh
Instagram - Trying to post daily blog updates here
