1st Anniversary - One year on the road



Me with a young salt water crocodile at Devil's Marbles in Australia


Unbelieveable, today is my 1st anniversary on the road. I am already one year nonstop traveling around South-East-Asia, Australia, Fiji and parts of Central Asia. I started exact one year ago for my second trip in this area. First time I was here for six month in 2010.

Honestly, my journey leaded me unexpected to countries and regions which haven't been on my imaginary itenary, but hey, that's life and a different kind of traveling and exploring my world.

When starting again I promised to write less in my postings and let pictures speaking instead. May be it was not often that the postings were in this manner, but all has a reason and I felt not well without giving background informations about situations showed in the pictures. That's why it is like it is. :D

My passport has only a few free pages left and I applied for a second one (not new), but the German embassy in Bangkok denied my application. This would be enough informations for another posting. I will think about.....

But for today.........only pictures of traveling for 1 year/12 month/366 days/8784 hours/ 527,040 minutes/31,622,400 seconds:

I entered 26 times another country. I flew 34 times, in total 44207 km. This is more than the distance one time orbit the globe. I used the bus for 5959 km. 26 times a boat to get from A to B, in total 1880 km. Three times a train for 1536 km. And only 750 km by motocycle along the whole coastline of Bali.

  1. Congrats! The longest I had ever traveled was 70 days and I was already tired at some point. Hope you find something beautiful in my country. Too bad we didn't get to meet up!

  2. Thank you so much Aleah. There are different things on such a long journey, to be tired is one of them. I will write in one of the future postings about this.
    Fortunately i am not under time pressure and may be we can catch up somewhere. :)

  3. Super Dieter. Weiter so. I never heard about the Countries Sarawak and Sabah. How did you figure out the distances? Google maps?
    I guess I know the guy who joined you on that motocycle trip.

    Best regards Alex

    1. Danke Alex! Deine Worte weiß ich zu schätzen. Sure you know this guy ;)
      Sarawak und Sabah sind die beiden Bundesstaaten in Ost-Malaysia. Sarawak ist sogar der größte Bundesstaat von Malaysia. Insofern sind das nicht Länder im eigentlichen Sinne. Sie haben jedoch beide eine eigene Autonomie über alle Bereiche der Immigration, d. h. du reist aus West-Malaysia aus und bekommst einen Sarawak-, oder Sabah-Einreisestempel. Aus diesem Grund habe ich sie extra als "Länder" gezählt.
      Nein, ich habe luftlinie.org verwendet.

      Viele Grüße aus Cebu.
      Dieter
