I think that we can say that I started this trip back in Vietnam in 2012, when I rented a motorbike and drove around the DMZ, on the Ho Chi Minh Trail and Laos. It got me started, and I was addicted to road forever
I drove, drove like a mad man in the Americas. I did 250 000 kms with my S320, S420, S500, S600 (all W140 generation), LS460 and Jeep Wrangler. I lost count of the number of borders that I crossed.
I did climb up to 5000m with the Wrangler in Ecuador and drove at unreasonable speed on some northern highways with an AMG V12.
The journey never ends: By plane or by land, I’m a mission to see the world before it fades away.
One of the trigger for this trip was reading a book by Douglas Adam called A Last Chance To See. This book changed my life.
Feel free to see my 150 top non-fiction books on this page for more inspiration. I am all travellers, stardust swirling and twirling in this cosmos.
I am planning to drive the Jeep from Germany to Mongolia in 2020.
One life. Live it.
