travel stories about nature and people
Hello, Moin Moin, Salli
… and welcome on our website. We’re Viviane and Steffen and we have a story to tell. We left our home to see the world. We wish to see the world not from above, but at eye level. Therefore we wont’t fly and will dive more deeply into cultures and landscapes of the countries.
On our journey we will follow our travel codex and give you tips and tricks to travel sustainably. This also means that we meet inspiring people and support organisations.
We concentrate on the natural beauties of our planet and wish to hike through primeval forests and dive into oceans.
Join us on our journey and read inspiring stories about nature and people.
Yes, we leave and see
We travel around the world to see breath-taking natural places, meet inspiring people and support organisations. Just now we are in Katsikas in Northern Greece and support the local project Habibi.Works. This is an open working space for people who fled their countries to provide a structure for them to integrate. Read more about our time in this amazing project here.
In Stage One we cycled from Lake Constanze in Germany to Montenegro, 3700 km, from June to September 2018.
In Stage Two we spent 2 months in Montenegro to help protect a bird paradise.
Join our trip
You can support us on our journey with many things, e.g. with an interesting story, a mouth-watering meal, a night on a comfi couch, a guided nature tour for free or sponsored equipment. We would love to report about your gifts and you joining our network. Your support is turning our journey into a memorable adventure.
