    Sauerkraut & Tofuwurst

    Riding around the world together with my wife and our dogs on motorcycles. A fantastic, epic and mind-blowing adventure. Pushing the limits, gaining cultural awareness, demanded problem solving and improvisational skills yet keeping calm in hopeless situations. In 3+ years, I rode almost 100.000km across 46 countries on 4 continents (Europe, Africa, North and South America). I took over 3000 pictures and made over 200 videos which I shared with the world.

    My excess energy and motivation to learn more led to this step to found an own company. However since I decided some months later to take a major time-out, in order to travel around the world together with my dogs by motorcycle, I closed the company before it really started.
