We are Henriette and Nikolas, a young couple from the east of Germany.
Actually we are traveling the globe but currently we are also kind of stuck here in Thailand because of Corona and the fact that (land) borders are closed.
We still think positive and thought of making the best out of this situation, looking for projects, where we can support ideas with our creativity and our helping hands while waiting for news.
In the beginning of May 2019 we left our home in Leipzig, only with two bagpacks and a tent to hitchhike eastwards, always with the ambition to avoid going by plane.
Until now we already stayed and passed trough countries of Eastern Europe (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria), traveled along the coast of the black sea through Turkey and made our first workaway experience in Georgia on the countryside, which we really enjoyed and where we also learned a lot. After visiting Azerbaidschan, Iran and countries like Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan we stayed also in Pakistan and India, where we also did some workaway (dairy farm) in the last months.
We are open minded people, curious about the world and their inhabitants. We like to be surrounded by fresh air and nature as well as staying with the people of the countries we are traveling through. We love to couchsurf and hitchhike! It's our way to get to know a country better. By traveling like this in the last 11 months we were gifted with wonderful experiences in really every country we stayed in.
We try to avoid traveling by plane to keep the planet clean as well as to have the experience to travel in „real time“.
Regarding to Corona we broke now our travel philosophy once and took a plane from India, Kolkata to Thailand, Bangkok. The land border to Myanmar was already closed and by comparing the health system of Myanmar with the health facilities in Thailand we decided to come here to wait and see what the future will bring.
When you are keen to find out more about where we traveled and what we experienced you can also visit our blog. We created this website without commercial purposes, only to share our memories with family and friends. Everything is written in German but Google translate is a good support and a big heap of pictures can be explored without language borders as well.
After finishing our first studies in history of arts and media technics we already made some experiences as freelancers before we decided to travel...
Henriette: I was working in different museums as a creative guide with the idea to discover art with the eyes of the single observer oneself. There I especially collaborated with children and young adults with my personal claim to empower their own creativity.
Besides I started with my second studies to become a teacher for primary school someday.
I’m also used to physical work when I worked in the parcels counter business in Leipzig as well.
Nikolas: I was working for different theaters as well as in a cabaret as a technician for sound and light.
I also have working experience in being a nurse in a retirement home and a undertaker as well as in working with people with disabilities.
