To know what's behind the horizon, which view may unfold behind the next hill-top, the immersion into foreign cultures, the crossing of borders - those things have always been the most important in my life.
the list of my most important travels ...
1970: Hamburg - Kathmandu - Just turned 18 years, after finishing high school, another three friends a 10 years old VW-Bus overland until the Himalajas.
1971: Off the beaten track to Kaschmir - Afghanistan: the northern route, Pakistan: the southern route, Iraq, Syria and Lebnon.
1973: Driving in an Unimog to Afganistan - Crossing Iran and Afghanistan, lowering the cost burden by taking tavellers on board as paying guests
1974: the big "Rödelei" - A winter time journey in an Unimog to Persia, science, car break downs and the whole catastrophy.
1977: Danakil- 3 men, 3 camels, maching though the Danakil desert, experiments to gain water from the air, ambushes and a lot of press attention.
