I’m a 38 year old woman from Germany with a passion for travelling. In August 2011 I decided to pause my fast moving life in the western civilization and travel to remote places in the developing world. Travelling overland is the best mode of travel for getting really in touch with the local people and see places which no standard tourist will ever put his foot on. However, overland travel requires time since thousands of miles need to be covered without an airplane. So I decided to take 15 months time to undertake a big journey… From my professional background, I worked over a decade for a global management consultancy and I’m holding a MBA degree which I have earned from leading business schools in Germany, India, China and the United States.

“You know it’s funny what’s happened to us. Our lives have become digital. Our friends, now virtual. And everything you could ever want to know is just a click away. Experiencing the world through endless second hand information isn’t enough. If we want authenticity, we have to initiate it.” – Travis Rice, The Art of Flight
“When it comes down to it, it’s pretty simple. Adventure is what you make it. And whether it’s the travel, the discovery or just the feeling of letting go, the only way we’ll ever find out is to get out there and do it. Enjoy the ride.” – Travis Rice, The Art of Flight
