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, and then Nepal. Having traveled in eleven countries, for seven months and close to 30 000 kms, and after taking a break in the summer of 2018, I decided to continue the journey towards Australia.

I have indicated the so-far route on the map below, updating sporadically.
