We drove all the way from Bavaria to Goa (sounds weird, isn’t it?) and spent a lot of time in Indias tiniest state where Ananda Ranis roots lie. Together with friends and family we discovered its spirit that is way more than beaches and trance parties. It’s a blend of Indian and Portuguese culture and besides the great sun, sea and sand it’s worth exploring the village life and the wilderness of the western ghats. After all there’s nothing left to say than „Dev borem korum“ which is what you say in the local language Konkani for „Thank you“.
This is a video about your extreme beauty, your challenges, your haze, your sound, your taste, your magic. It is definitely impossible to find a word for this massive empire of the unexpected. We tried to name it – unbelievable, indescribable, unpredictable. But the only word that matches is the most common: Incredible India! This time: Rajasthan and Punjab.
Artists of the city Udaipur are well known for their astounding paintings. Some brushes are made of thin squirrel fur to paint all the tiny details that make the complete picture look so great. The artist in this video needed two days to paint such a masterpiece on our truck. In the back his colleague painted giant letters that should help us driving through India…
This little fella can totally compete with the big ones!
Behind The Scenes: Driving India from North to South was one of the biggest challenges of the entire journey. We were struggling hard to find the right way and even Google maps reached its limits. But then we met a Royal Rider who helped us getting through this big traffic jungle. First he invited us to his home. Then he messaged all the other Bikers of India. From that point the coolest Riders (male and female!) escorted us through their cities and gave us a wonderful time. Thank you so much Bablaa Da and all the Riders! _/|\_
In India we’ve met this street artist on the road: TONA. He portraits kids throughout his travels and sprays the artwork all over the world. One of his masterpieces „The Crouch“ can now be seen on our truck.
We can’t believe it ourselves, but we did it: We drove all the way from Germany to India with our monstrous Rolling Home. Recently people asked us „What street did you take?“ Well, here’s the answer! The long and wonderful way from Deutschland to Hindustan…
Behind the Scenes: Whenever you think that you’ll just spend a little while in a country, it’s taking a new twist. We’ve been traveling Kyrgyzstan, the land of nomads, for more than two months and discovered picturesque landscapes, lovely felt yurts and willful horses that for once carried us (along with our camera equipment) to hidden mountain lakes. Particularly moving is the special bond that we’d like to visualize in this video. An incredible vibe that finally revived after years of soviet era and political unrest.
We filmed our journey from the very beginning and after 30.000 kilometres we still do so. We capture astonishing and moving pictures on our way to show that the world is largely breathtaking and worth living in. Maybe some of you get a better impression of other countries or even get inspired and travel the world by yourself. In any case: Thanks for following us! We appreciate it a lot!
Behind the Scenes: When you enjoy endlessly road trips, Kazakhstan will blow your mind. We took the highway from lonely west to empty southeast, past wide fields and dry steppe. The hardest thing was to reach Aral Sea that has shrunk massively over the last years. You actually have to drive miles through the dried-out lake to find the shore covered in reeds and make many mosquitos happy. But it is somehow still worth it!
Behind the Scenes: On our way to India we did a little detour to this giant country, spend some time fishing and explored the flora of the Volga delta. People from outside kept telling us alarming stories about Russia. But at this place a piece of strain drops from you – when you see some people quietly fishing or watch some cows gracefully swimming (the fishermen call them „Super Korova“). By the way, we’ve edited two Making Ofs that you’ll find when you click right below. Enjoy!
Behind the Scenes: Georgia is not only about snow-peaked mountains. When we came back to Georgia we discovered „Udabno“, a spring green semi-desert in the south, where you can find hidden monasteries, colourful lizards and glowing sunsets. In this mysterious scenery time seems to run backwards which is why this video is about rewinding back to – well, where would you go to?
