Three hundred and sixty-five – 1 year on the road in the countries of this world

This life is more than just a way through…”

The day we left Germany was really a year ago? Hard to believe! But if we consciously let our thoughts wander in this direction, all the memories and experiences fill what feels like at least a 365-day period!

We capture some of the moments on this journey in the blog entries. But countless other moments, whether brief encounters or conscious impressions, we experience every day. We rarely visit the same place a second time.

During this time, we were able to discover many areas, some of which were still completely unknown to us in terms of history, geography, flora and fauna, and connect them with feelings and images. It also became very clear what a great negative influence man has on this planet. Not always easy to come to terms with!

Of course we had certain ideas before such a long journey and were sometimes surprised how different it can be. On the one hand in the best sense, but on the other hand also in a rather challenging way.

Whether it’s mentally dealing with oneself, with the past, the present and future plans and dreams. Living as a couple in a very small space, mostly with a dog, through all seasons and “wind and weather” around us…

And the experience of this new way of life, for example the constant changes in location and the resulting encounters with ever new people and situations. As well as the experience that, at the latest with every border change, the landscapes and cultures also change again and again. Over the weeks, we have found our way into many things that make up the previous country or region, enjoyed them and also adapted to them – suddenly many things are fundamentally different. And so our wealth of experience continues to grow. And we grow with it ­čśë

One thing is for sure, the exchange rate Euro to unforgettable experiences is definitely unsurpassed! ­čÖé
