About me

I left everything I had and was. Sold my expensive guitar, and on the spot went out on my dream trip. I had to take this decision in just one day before the trip since I found about a great deal of a ticket suddenly in the middle of my boring existence back home. Therefor I could only take my camera backpack with me and few other things. After a long story, I flipped a coin and I went to Istanbul to see how far could I get, dropping my return ticket back home. I was craving for new inspiration in my life.

So I came by land, hitch hiking, from Turkey, across Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, and China (at the moment), perhaps moving to Mongolia next.

You would not believe how naive I am, how easily I get lost, and mainly how unprepared I am for such a long journey. The funny thing is that everything is alright. Ironically, "All I need is all I have". Ironically because for many years I thought that traveling would be much more difficult.

I have enjoyed many wonderful stories and encounters by it. The Earth has become a familiar place and things, somehow, look a little bit more beautiful. I am just a dreamer. The world has become friendlier.

A text called "Wandering" by Herman Hesse is something that I can relate to my life a lot.
