Our world tour
Great, that you are part of our world tour
We are willing to take you with us into a world full of exciting stories about inspiring people and breath-taking nature.
We started our sustainable world tour on 01.06.2018. At the moment we are in Katsikas in Northern Greece to support the project Habibi.Works. Here we support people who fled their countries to produce nice things in the creative area and the metal workshop.
In our first stage we cycled from Germany to Montenegro. There we spent two months to support the local NGO MSJA to protect a bird paradise.
Check out Our Travel Map to see where we traveled and which experiences we made so far. Our goals for the world tour are to travel sustainably, see nature, meet people, connect them and do voluntary work. Find out more about our Travel Codex.
We stay on ground, close to nature and people — and therefore do not look down on our world from above sitting in an airplane. For that view we have enough satellite images…. We don’t only travel as sustainably as possible from place to place, but we also try to leave a small ecological travel footprint. For more details check out our Travel Codex.
Marvel at nature
Despite forest destruction, overfishing the oceans and billions of other problems, there still exist those amazingly beautiful natural places on our planet. We want to experience those breath-taking landscapes firsthand, marvel at them and capture them for you!
We meet people, talk with them and tell their stories, especially from people committed to the protection of nature. Our adventures and encounters should make you (more) excited about nature, inspire you to get active and to travel and consume sustainably. It’s more fun!
We also want to dirty our hands and get sour muscles from work supporting those people. We wish to support initiatives, associations and organizations with same goals as we set in our Travel Codex. Planting trees, picking up garbage from beaches, cooking food for refugees… Really, there are (almost) no limits to how we can dirty our hands to make this world a better place.
Take One: Danube and Balkan
On our first stage we pedalled with our bikes from Radolfzell to Ulcinj in Montenegro. 3700 km in 3 months from June to September 2018. We cycled along the Danube bicycle trail (EuroVelo 6) and along the Balkan Green Belt (EuroVelo 13). Check out Our Travel Map to see our route. We did this trip to inform about the #SaveSalina – campaign and the nature conservation foundation EuroNatur.
Take Two: Salina and Sea
From September to November we stayed in Ulcinj, Montenegro. Viviane supported the local nature conservation association MSJA (Dr. Martin Schneider-Jacoby Association) and helped them to protect Ulcinj Salina, a real bird paradise. She designed a map of the salina for tourists and improved the MSJA website.
Take Three: Thumbs up and go
In take three we hitchhiked from Montenegro through Albania to Northern Greece. Albania is home to 15 national parks and in one week we got a glimpse of 3 of them (Valbona, Theth and Divjaka-Karavasta). In Katsikas, Greece, we are at the moment supporting Habibi.Works, a project for people who fled their countries.
