In October 2017, I have left Germany with an oriental route in mind, first wanting to reach the Middle East and eventually India. After some most memorable two months in Turkey, Iran and Pakistan, I crossed over to India and reached Taj Mahal on Christmas. The next couple of months were about exploring India’s west coast, the south of the Subcontinent, and then Nepal.
After taking a break in the summer of 2018, I decided to continue the journey through South-East Asia and towards Australia on the other side of the planet from where I started. Within more than two years, I have now traveled through 23 countries and for more than 70,000 kms by road.
I am indicating the so-far route on the map below, updating sporadically.
