Many people dream of that one big adventure that they will embark on one day. We decided that one day should not be a hypothetical day in the distant future but after finishing university. It is a time of few responsibilities and only the sky is the limit. Cycling as our mode of transport came up when thinking about how to travel through Oceania and Asia and as we cycled in our last holidays before it was an obvious choice. It took some time for us to get comfortable with the idea but in the end we loved it and started planning.

Soon we realized how much money we had to spend on new gear and as business students we started getting in touch with possible sponsors. We were lucky to find some supporters that liked our idea and wanted to help us out. The initial plan was to cycle in New Zealand, Australia and Southeast Asia for about 18 months.

Little did we know what we signed up for. The trip developed to be an incredible adventure with the most beautiful people and places along the way. After a while we decided to cycle all the way back home to Germany, extending the trip by another year or more. All the stories we were told and the picture of arriving back home cycling inspired us a lot!

Here we are in the middle of our adventure of a lifetime, learning more than we could have ever imagined and having a blast. Have a look at our videos and check out our blog if you want to find out more.

Enjoy, get inspired and if you have any feedback or questions, feel free to get in touch with us :).

Great to have you on our website.

Our Good Cause

With thousands of refugees coming to Western Europe during the last years and many of them coming to Germany, fear of the unknown and uncertainty about the future situation were widespread. By now, all refugees in Germany are officially processed but public interest in the situation is fading. We think that now is the most vital situation to take care of all the people that are already in Germany or that are still in refugee camps somewhere. We want peopl not to forget about these people as they can only get back into a structured everyday life if we support the initiatives that are working to help these people that were forced to flee their countries.


Refugee Mentoring in Erlangen

In our home town of Erlangen, there are about 2000 asylum seekers and refugees that need help to be integrated into our German society. For this, the social welfare office organizes a mentoring program that connects local volunteering mentors with refugees. Together, they can engage in all kinds of activities that aim at the refugees getting more independent within our society. Whether it means joining a refugee family on a doctor's visit, helping with learning German, going on trips or just showing them how to repair a bicycle - everything is possible. As the volunteers do not get any money of course, they still need some funds to buy public transportation tickets or supplies for the activities for example. The initiative aims at helping people to be able to help themselves.

This is where you can support the initiative by donating money or even becoming a mentor yourself - still more people are needed as well. If you want to engage there, get in touch with Dr. Elisabeth Preuß.
