India/ Kerala (April 2024)

Good morning!       (–> Text übersetzen in Deutsch)

Together with my new travel family (Timur, Anika, Zia and Lima from Cologne) I drove further south-west to the Indian state of ‘Kerala’. The heat started to become difficult, so was the humidity. The only way to survive was to put Wischnewski directly onto the beach coast where there was a constant breeze from the seaside. And we got the doggo-friends, a lot of stray dogs in that area.

Unfortunately, also me had to interrupt our travelling (after Heike already left back home to Germany in February). Heikes father passed away in April so that I flew back to Kassel for funeral and to meet the family. Wischnewski waits for us in the city ‘Kochi’ where we found a good place to park close to the airport.

We will continue our overlander trip soon, sometimes in the middle of this year, and of course we will keep you updated 🙂

Enjoy the pictures!

Best wishes from Heike & Carsten

India/ Goa (March 2024)

Good morning!       (–> Text übersetzen in Deutsch)

the Indian state ‘Goa’ is a great place to relax and a even better place to meet nice people (also other overlander). I had a wonderful time in the beach village of ‘Agonda’ together with new friends from Italy, England and Germany. We did not do much, just enjoying the beach, having great food, investigating the area (sometimes jungle-like, a bit carrebean style) per motorcycle… and of course: a lot of watching the cows that are running around everywhere. You find them in the streets, at the beach, in restaurants, shops and gardens.

Enjoy the pictures!

Mumbai (March 2024)

Good morning!       (–> Text übersetzen in Deutsch)

Visiting Mumbai is the next highlight: a city with 15 million inhabitants is a special thing to see (30 million inhabitants including the surrounding cities). No surprise that the traffic situation is very challenging and that life on the street can be confusing. Even if most people live in proper homes, still some poor ones live on the streets or in slums (like ‘Dharavi’). In any case Mumbai is a great city to visit: A lot to see and a lot to experience. A good portion of the ‘Indian vibe’ can be found here.

Enjoy the pictures!

Wischnewski Special: at the butcher’s (February 2024)

Good morning!       (–> Text übersetzen in Deutsch)

a very special activity in Udaipur was ‘to go to the butcher’. You must know that finding meat is sometimes very difficult. So we were very happy when we got an insider tip from a local who brought us to the ‘number 1 butcher’ of the town.

That was an extraordinary experience – please see the comments at the pictures!

Note: no ideal pictures for vegetarians!

Enjoy the pictures (maybe not :-0)

Best wishes from Carsten
P.S. important to say that this is absolutely not representative for food handling in India, …but still it can happen this way…

1000 days on the road, in 19 countries

Good morning!       (–> Text übersetzen in Deutsch)

Celebration: today we are on the road since 1000 days. We drove circa 50.000 Km through 19 countries (wow!)

Being on a world trip with an expedition truck is a really special experience. Our wish was to be able to get deeper into cultures meeting local people, experiencing local life. The extra nice experience is to meet so many very nice overlander during our travels. We already found several ‘travel families’ with which we travelled many weeks or even month. That was so nice!

Our trip continues (no surprise)!

Best wishes from Heike & Carsten
