I am always hungry. Hungry for good food and new experiences I decided to travel around Asia for a year. I packed my bag, my girlfriend and now I would love to tell you the story of where my restlessness got me.

Some people say I'm impulsive, some people say I'm stubborn but one thing I have always known for sure - I love traveling. I have been planning a year long journey for as long as I remember. I was saving money for many years waiting for that perfect moment and when it didn't come, I decided to make it myself. I canceled my insurances, phone number and bought a one way ticket to Sri Lanka. You probably know the quote by Alexander Supertramp from Into the Wild: ''Happiness is only real when shared.'' So with my 5 t-shirts and 2 pants, I also packed my girlfriend, Katja. She keeps my hyperactive brain in one place and I find all her misplaced items when she packs. Don't try to keep her away from baby animals and drugs. Hey, don't get me wrong, she's a pharmacist by profession.
Trying to find a balance between traveling on a low budget and experiencing new things, we found the way to travel for more than a year. We had a budget of maximum 50 $/day for both of us, including plane tickets and everything, but we managed to spend much less, sometimes even 18 $ for both. 

Our journey

We have been traveling for one amazing year. Drinking tea in Sri Lanka, following holy cows in India, diving on Andaman islands, trekking in the Himalayas, eating and meditating in Thailand, living with a jungle tribe and snorkeling the best coral reefs in Indonesia, seeing the most amazing stupa sunrise in Myanmar, driving trough half of Vietnam and swimming with the whale sharks in Philippines. And now? We're settling for a couple of months in Chiang Mai, Thailand to gather all of our memories in one place.

Our goal

A book. Different stories and beautiful pictures, a kind of inspirational literature where everything is possible if you only try. One year of gathering so much knowledge about these amazing places is meant to be shared. Not spending a lot of money using local buses and eating in local restaurants can give you much more memorable stories. We want to write a beautiful inspirational hardcover book and e-book will be also available. We want to enrich the experience of reading by creating an interactive website with additional photo and video material which will compliment the book.

What we need

We’ve been saving hard for a long time and we’re keeping to our tight travel budget but in the end we will need some help from you, Travelstarters. We would love to write and publish a book about our journey and we don’t have money for that. What we need is:

  • 1500 $ for printing hardcover books
  • 0 $ and a lot of time to set up a website for the book :)
