After what felt like hours of preparing and playing tetris to fit everything into the backpack, it’s finally time to start this journey for me as well.
Currently I’m sitting in the train, heading towards a beautiful sunset. Direction: Köln. I’ll meet up with a friend there for one more quiet evening in germany and will continue tomorrow to catch up with Ben in Krefeld.
… and of course I’m ready for No-shave-November as well. I’ll go even further and extend it till mid December!
I’m in Krefeld feeling well prepared for the trip. Well prepared for
long car rides (About 8 hours in the last two days, although it was only a distance of 540km)
meeting new people (Met lots of nice people while hitchhiking)
the heat of Dubai (One of the cars had a broken engine cooling system so we had to turn up the heating in the car to 29° C for almost 150km. After that the heating wouldn’t work anymore so we had to refill the system every 50km)
No-shave-November (I met up with my friend Jacob in Bonn, who will be joining me for the next month. Is Eiko up for this as well? : ) )
