… and how everything will start.
Now we know where we will open our eyes on the 1st of June and therefore start our big adventure officially. It will be at a place very special to us: the Naturfreundehaus at Lake Constanze.
Not so long ago, in the Friends-of-Nature House in Markelfingen at Lake Constanze we got to know each other for the first time. As from that day onwards we only have positive moments to remember, we see it as a good sign (yes, we do believe a bit in fate). Subsequently, we spent many beautiful hours at the Friends-of-Nature House. In the summer months we came here mainly on Sundays to refresh ourselves in the lake, to meet friends, play Yahtzee (Kniffel in German) and eat organic ice-cream. We especially have great memories about the sappy vegetarian burgers and potato wedges. Yummy! For our six months relationship we even treated ourselves to a sleepover in the Friends-of-Natur House – to mark the occasion.
We are happy that the Naturfreundehaus Markelfingen will generously sponsor our first and remarkable night. Why remarkable? We will sleep in a tree tent! Exactly, a tent inbetween two trees – with a magnificent view on Lake Constanze. The perfect beginning!
Attention! In the paragraph below we will always give a short background info and probably also a commercial. It will be somehow our “behind the scenes” telling you about the people and organizations behind the equipment, places we stay over or activities we take part in.
As the phrase suggests the Friends-of-Nature House is from and for naturefriends. However, there is not only one Friends-of-Nature House. There are over 700! Not only this, but the naturefriends are also an association – a very large one, indeed! In Germany alone there exist over 650 local groups where volunteers work hour for hour for a world worth living in. They are committed i.a. to sustainable tourism, nature and climate protection. The naturefriends internationale with their 350,000 members in roughly 45 member organisations worldwide belong to the largest non-governmental organisations (NGOs). We think this concept deserves to be supported and suggest to get a member or spend holiday in one of their houses.
What we could organize until now
Our To Do- list is growing and growing and growing. Nevertheless, we managed the following things although we are working full-time:
- The website and social media channels are ready to be filled with interesting content.
- We bought some equipment
- We terminated our tenancy, work and other contracts.
- Our passports are valid and we got the necessary booster shots.
- We decided on the first stage of our world tour.
What we will organize next week:
- Further obnoxious bureaucracy e.g. travel health insurance, travel bank account and tax return
- Find more supporters
- Meet with Zweirad Joos
