So far during the last few months of walking, I have accumulated a bit more than 1,5 terabyte of data. It takes a while to copy all of that: And by that I mean… … it takes forever. Also, I worried: By loading the video, you agree to YouTube’s privacy policy.Learn more Load video Always […]


out with Feivel

Nothing more:


the model

Posted on

Busy taking pictures of my book today: I needed them for my site: Of course I would have preferred to be out on the road photographing the sunset: But oh well.


books and the tramp

Posted on

One good (or bad) thing about writing is you always get a number of free books from your publisher. I spent the day mailing them to friends and family: Then I went out with Feivel, the dog: Here he is: He is a total sweetheart. And he used to live on the street, just like […]


old shoes old shoes old shoes old shoes old shoes

So I am home. To be honest, it doesn’t feel strange to be here most of the time. I walk the dog. I hang out with my friends and my family. I eat. Anyway, my trusted walking shoes had a few busted seams, so I got them repaired by our local shoemaker: Fixing things feels […]


one last radio

Appeared on the radio today: It’s a German show on DRadio Wissen, here’s the link: Christoph Rehage – mit einer chinesischen Reisegruppe quer durch Europa


wizard pool

Posted on

More walks: More food: And then I was on a train home again: I ended up playing pool that night: The premise was that whoever loses the game has to wear the hat: We called it wizard pool.


schnaps to the moon

Posted on

Here, at my relatives’ place, it was customary to have a drink in the morning: So I did that. And then it was just eating and talking and going for the occasional walk outside: I was reading a book called “First On The Moon” about Apollo 11. And in it I found this part where […]

Why my interest in Mülheim, you ask? Well, let me tell you why: it is because of the German punk band Lokalmatadore. They are from here. And I like them very much. So today I went down to the river and found a place to sit down: Then I put in some of their all-time […]


hometown boy

Posted on

Went and saw the river Ruhr in Mülheim: I had always wanted to see this. The city itself wasn’t quite as industrial as I had expected it to be: But it was fun, and I stayed in a hotel that had an awesome old elevator: I don’t know why exactly, but I really liked it.


green glow

Quiet day. Went and took a walk with the dog. Feivel is his name. And sometimes he glows in the dark.

The ninth day

Posted on

Woke up, and I was 35. Nine years had past since The First Day. Well, okay, I thought, then I turned on Twitter, and then I said: What. The. Fuck. Have. You. Done. ? So I went and had a few drinks. Then I took a train home, and even when I was home in […]


Reading in Heidelberg

Had two things to do today. First I went to Mannheim: I was going to appear on a radio show there: The show was called “Redezeit”, here’s a (German) link: Redezeit mit Christoph Rehage Then I made a wish for my birthday, which was going to be the next day: I didn’t want hate to […]


reading in Freiburg

Posted on

I went on an extra long train ride today, from the north of the country all the way to the south. But I had “Ash vs Evil Dead” with me, so it was all good. When I arrived in Freiburg, it was already getting dark: I went straight to the venue: And again I talked […]


popular work for butter

Posted on

Okay, so I came up with a new tag working that I’m using for this whole trip home. And even though I might not have actual work to do every day, I still use the tag for every post. I think it’s because I like to think of this as a sort of business trip. […]


the red couch show

Posted on

I was terrified when my grandma called and said she had notified all of her friends of this live TV show that I was supposed to appear on later that day. Oh please, no! I thought. “How nice!” I told my grandma. Then my other grandma called to tell me the exact same thing: she […]


watch Ash vs Evil Dead or die

Posted on

Woke up and hopped on a train home. There were going to be lots and lots of train rides these days. I didn’t mind it though, because I had downloaded the series “Ash vs Evil Dead” onto my phone, and I was mesmerized by it. Mesmerized, I say. Seriously, “Ash vs Evil Dead” is one […]


reading in Leipzig

Posted on

Went to Leipzig today for another “Neuschweinstein” book thing. Read from the same pages as the night before. Felt good. I did sit on trains a lot though.


reading in Frankfurt

Posted on

Went to Frankfurt today to present my book “Neuschweinstein”: I talked a little. Read a little. Everyone was very friendly. It was a good time.
