Clothing Gear Review

In my next gear review, I will be talking about the first layers and hiking boots after reviewing the jackets in my last post. Especially for longer hikes, it is very helpful to have some good quality Merino gear for your first layers. They might be a bit more expensive, but are completely worth it and last much longer, so in the end you will probably invest the same amount of money over time. Read the rest of this entry »

100th country done!

I spent more time in Australia and New Zealand (nearly half a year combined), but now it is finally time to announce that I have just received the stamp of my 100th country! It happens to be the Philippines and I can’t wait to explore all the beautiful islands here in the next four weeks. Until then, I hope you like this short one minute drone footage I put together from a rather unknown hike in New Zealand. Check out the post for more info and the video!

My time in New Zealand is coming to an end and I will be headed towards Asia again! While my trip to China is basically just a long stopover, I have some more time to spend in Taiwan before finishing off South East Asia with a full month in the Philippines.

Outdoor Jackets Gear Review


Moving on with my travel gear reviews, I will talk about the jackets I am using during my trip. Since I love the mountains and colder areas, I invested a bit more money into proper and very lightweight materials. Those not only keep me completely dry and out of the wind, but also last for a long time and only make up for a tiny portion of my Backpack’s weight. Check out which products I am relying on in this post! Read the rest of this entry »

With Australia and New Zealand taking up nearly half a year from June onward, my 100th country has to wait until November and will be the Philippines!

Crux AK70 Backpack & Camping Gear Review

My next travel gear review will cover the essentials such as my Crux AK70 Backpack and Nordisk Pasch tent, as well as the sleeping bag and mattress. Since I cover all climate regions in the world within one trip, I have to be prepared for cold temperature as well and carry the appropriate gear with me constantly. For that reason, I have spent a bit more money in those basic items, making sure they are as light and durable as possible. Check out the review for the details! Read the rest of this entry »

Travel Costs #01 incl. Country Statistics!

Here is a first update from my Travel Costs, including everything until today! Back in my original post about general travel costs and how to travel cheaply, I actually included all the future upcoming flights into the statistics. This has now been fixed and the following stats only count every expense until today and nothing that is booked ahead, reflecting the current daily cost a bit more accurate. I have also added a breakdown of the average costs for all the countries in detail.

Sony A6000 Camera & Sony SELP18105G Lens Review


As mentioned in my initial post listing the complete gear I am using during my travels, I will now start reviewing and start with the first and probably most important piece of equipment: The Camera! I have used a Sony A6000 since it was originally released in April 2014 and will tell you why I still carry it around until now despite the fact that it is slowly getting old..  Read the rest of this entry »
