One day we will end up like this - well hopefully not exactly like this, but you get what we mean - so we simply have to enjoy the time we have. Live your dream life today and don‘t wait around.

Fixing a bike along the road is easy. Dylan help several broken down cars or bikes and always came up with a solution. But when there is suddenly an accident, what do you do? 
Do you help or do you think someone else may be a better choice to help? And if you help: Will you do the right thing or will the situation overburden your abilities?
The only answer to this questions is: only doing nothing is wrong! And yes, the situation will most probably not be easy to handle, but you will be OK. 
After we happen to be victims in an accident ourself we know how it feels when someone is there and can only imagine how it would feel if people around would not care and drive on. Read our new Blog post about how we felt driving up to a accident scene in Mongolia. ▶️link in bio @ride2xplore

Sometimes reality looks like a painting. At home near lake Bodensee tonight.

In Mongolia, stone houses, so called Ovoos, are built on top of passes for the gods. The gods living inside are then supposed to protect the travellers passing by. 
But what, if the gods are not watching careful enough? Well then this information might help: 
Did you know that the best way to make an emergency call from a smartphone in Europe is always via 112?  Neither did we until recently.
Why? 
Because a) the phone logs into an available network even without a current network from your provider, and b) the almost empty battery gets all the juice available, when it recognizes that you call 112. Even if the battery is almost empty you can still talk for up to 15 minutes.  And c) 112 works all over Europe.
Smartphones are actually pretty smart. 😇

Living in a van means we can afford a house at the shore of lake Zurich when we need it. This is the view right now. So happy to spend a day in the town and be able to come back to our self made paradise! 😍 Thank you, thank you, thank you @flohfi for the beautiful evening! 💚

While we sit inside and warm our hands with a cup of tea right now, we dream of such evenings, cuddled up outside with a beautiful sunset view overlooking the Altai mountains in the west of Mongolia. 💕

The first snow of the Season is here and it‘s time to keep the thiny house cozy and warm. Luckily our planar heater works again, after we (well Dylan) cleaned out a tone of dirt from all over centralasia! In case you use a planar heater be aware that the original airfilter does a lausy job.

Since a few weeks our feet are in their winter shoes again. And the heads behind the computer screen, where we are cutting our documentary film. 
This memory of Uzbekistan is beautiful, but also thought-provoking. Here we were standing on the dry seabed of the Aral Sea. A natural but also human disaster. For the sake of cotton the region was made into a desert. A big one: the lake is now 190km away from what used to be a fishing village.

This is how every morning should be like! The reality is: it is not, but still every day is a gift. 
Always see the positive side of things and your day is a better one.🤩It‘s about what you make out of every day that counts. 😍

This landscape reminds me of a rainbow. 🌈 A rainbow reminds me of peace. ☮️ And how wonderful would it be if I could say that peace reminds me of Afghanistan. Although: When we drove along the border for 3 days, we got quite a peaceful impression of the country, which has been torn apart by violence for 40 years. Read our blog about it now.

For 3 days and over 250km we followed the river Panj, which separates two nations. The river marks the border between Tadjikistan and Afghanistan. It was a strange feeling to only peak into this country, which we almost only associate with negativity and not to be able to get in contact with its people. But what we saw were peaceful villages with peaceful people.

When the neighbors stop by for a chat and tea. ;-) Vanlife seems a minimalistic life, but it gives us so much richness, so many different everydays, so many colors and so so much joy.
