After almost a year of travelling we have finally made it back home well not exactly home as we don’t have an apartment due to giving it up prior to us heading out on our voyage. We started out in Germany flew to the Dominican Republic where we travelled around the island for three weeks . Next we flew to Miami and started the road trip all the way to L.A., San Francisco and back to Los Angeles again. From there we continued to Japan, South Korea, Turkey, Germany, United Kingdom, back to Germany, then to Russia where we took The trans-Siberian train from Moscow to taking us through Mongolia, to China and continued on to Hong Kong, from there to Vietnam and the United Emirates and back home again. It was quite some trip. During our travels we met a lot of great people from all over the world, tasted new dishes, and drank the best coffee. We learnt a lot about different cultures how they live and how they cope with different problems and life in general. I can only recommend this kind of trip to anybody. For anybody reading these kind of blogs it probably looks like a really long holiday. But the truth is it’s probably more exhausting than going to work. That being said it’s also more rewarding. After all this travelling being back home leaves you feeling strangely empty. On the one hand full of memories and experiences on the other hand everything is small organised and quiet. I actually miss the hooting of the scooters, lively streets, people sitting in the countless roadside cafeterias and the constant input of new images, sounds, tastes and smells. We were quite lucky not to have any bad experiences except for maybe the Greyhound buses which were quite terrible, but then again all over the world people are people, they just want to get on with life have fun, drink coffee and do the same kind of things we all do. Basically we are all the same and that’s a good thing. Maybe with a bit of luck humanity will one day learn to live in peace.
