Our plan is simple. At the end of 2018, we want to leave our comfortable lifes in Berlin behind and explore the world. As much of it as possible. And while being on the road around the world, we want to show that one can travel our entire planet in a sustainable fashion. This means, during the entire trip we’ll try to minimize our impact on the environment as much as possible. Therefore, we are going to travel the world without ever setting foot on an aircraft. Instead, we want to travel aboard a cargo ship, 9,000 kilometers over the ocean from Hamburg to Buenos Aires.
From there, our first big cycling tour will take us roughly 3,000 kilometers from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, the south tip of the continent. After spending a few weeks exploring the natural beauty of Patagonia, we’ll head back up towards Panama City. A few months later, after riding 8,000 kilometers through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia, we want to board another cargo ship that’ll take us from Panama City to Napier, New Zealand.
After a roundtrip tour of New Zealand, another cargo ship will take us to Hong Kong, the starting point of our Southeast Asia adventure. A few weeks later, our final cargo ship will take us from Singapore to Greece. This marks the final stage of our bikepacking trip around the world. The last few weeks of our trip will take us through Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, and Austria.
After more than 20,000 kilometers on a bike, 45,000 kilometers on board of cargo ships, and a bit more than a year later, we’ll finally arrive back home in Graz, Austria (our place of birth). If you want to find out more about why we’re doing this, make sure to read about “Us And Our Bikes”.
