Chapter 9.1 – Welcome to Iran – Magic Made by Hand

Behind the Scenes: „Welcome to Iran“ is one of the most common phrases in the Iranian culture which probably is the friendliest on earth. It really matters to the people that you feel happy and well looked after. That is why every video of this series simply begins with these …

Iranian Shepherd Song – Qeshm Island

Behind the Scenes: On our journey from Germany to India we explored the Islands of Iran. On Qeshm Island, in the middle of a lonely road, we met a shepherd who invited us to sit in the shade of his tree for a while. Since we couldn’t speak each others …

Chapter 8 – Meditation in Azerbaijan

Behind the Scenes: We crossed the countryside of Azerbaijan to find out what’s apart from its glamorous capital Baku. Well, there is space. A lot. After locating a beachside that wasn’t surrounded by oil rigs, we got to know some fishermen who soon made friends and enjoyed telling us their jokes in Azeri Turkish which we of course couldn’t understand. After a tough day in the sea they shared one …

Snowboarden mit Mönchen

Die Sonne verschwindet langsam im Schneegestöber, der Berggrat ist noch lange nicht in Sicht. In der Ferne, hinter dem Vorhang aus dicken Flocken, kommt ein steinernes Kreuz hervor – und verschwindet gleich wieder im Weiß, durch das wir nun schon seit Stunden wandeln.

Chapter 7 – Drifting in Gudauri, Georgia

Behind the Scenes: The great Caucasus is not only the cats dream. On our journey to India we came across Gudauri, a former sowjet ski resort, which we right away sank deep into. In the end we’ve spent a month drifting through this stunning powdery snow. However, to get a timelapse video of Caucasus‘ clouds is not as easygoing as it looks: You have to bear three hours of icy wind until you …

„Snowboard Varenyky“ In Georgia

Behind the Scenes: In Georgias ski resort Gudauri Snowboarders from all over the world come together, mostly from Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Sibiria and recently Germany. Since we didn’t know what „Vareniky“ was, we started preparing it all together. One thing led to another, till midnight several Snowboards were covered with „Varenyky“: delicious slavic dumplings widespread in the area of the …

Chapter 6 – Tamam Turkey!

Behind the Scenes: When we travelled through Turkey we didn’t expect many off-road adventures. Steering our 4-wheel-truck to that hidden beach was surprisingly challenging. The narrow path started to crumble, the rain had washed away some parts. We weren’t even sure if this was the right direction. After arriving savely you really feel like a hero – until you see two locals happily speeding …

Pide aufs Haus

Nach Ostanatolien zieht es eher weniger Touristen, umso exotischer wirken wir auf die Einheimischen. Ein kurzer Stopp in Zara, einer von Schneebergen umgebenen Stadt, um noch schnell ein paar Gigabyte bei Turkcell aufzuladen.

Quick Outdoor Recipe

Behind the Scenes: This special outdoor Thai dish was prepared at the coast of Turkey. This might sound confusing now, but to that point it made totally sense. On our journey to India we met friendly 4-wheel travellers heading to Thailand. Once the camp was set we created a tasty meal with fresh ingredients each vehicle carried on board: chicken, onions, …

Chapter 5 – Bulgarias Golden Leaves

Behind the Scenes: Every morning these wild horses were running around the lake, stumbling upon any barrier they could find. But whenever we pointed a camera at them they completely freezed, sometimes for half an hour. Nothing could convince them to move, not even a carrot. Bulgaria’s sheep were way more telegenic, possibly assuming cameras contain corn.

Chapter 4 – Down in History: Greece

Behind the Scenes: Capturing the steaming hot water of Thermopylae was possible only to a limited extent. For one thing you are not supposed to record the refugee camp right next to it. We respect that and focused on the hot rushing waterfall and the green mineral stones with layers of purple plastic inside. Secondly, you can’t stay too long since the springs are …

Albanien, kaputt

Manche fragen uns, ob das nicht zu gefährlich sei. Ob wir keine Angst hätten vor den vielen wildfremden Menschen und Denkweisen. Die Wahrheit ist: es gibt auf diesem Planeten gar nicht so viele.

Massives Montenegro

Wer mit einem Unimog durch die Welt tuckert, reist nicht sonderlich schnell, sondern erarbeitet sie sich Schlagloch für Schlagloch, serpentinenweise – „erfährt“ die Strecke sozusagen. Währenddessen verändern sich Landschaft und Länder klammheimlich, schleichend, immer nur ein Mü (µ).
