Got2Go – 90.000 Kilometers AROUND THE WORLD on a motorcycle SOLO

18 months, 50 countries, 90.000 kilometers – how I rode around the world on a motorcycle solo as a female traveler and what I learned along the way.
This video is for everyone who wants to see some parts of my journey around the world – but the highlights and the most memorable and intimate encounters – the lows and highs of my trip – you will only find in my book.

// It would mean the world to me if you support my journey by buying my book – and please leave a good review on Amazon, so it will be suggested to other people as well!

// Your family. Your friends. Your job. Your language. Your life, as you know it. Imagine you leave all of this behind, and just go on a ride around the world. 18 months, 50 countries, 90.000 kilometers of adventure.

In my travelogue I tell a story of falling and getting up again, of courage and serenity, faith in oneself and other people, empathy, hope and determination. About setting out – but not to learn to fear the world, but to find adventure, friendship and love.
The moment that changes everything can come at any time. For me it’s a normal Monday morning in the office when I saw a colleague watering a plant with Evian mineral water. I quit my job, left my comfort zone and set off on a trip around the world.
Just my motorcycle Cleo and me, all alone.
But what do you do when there’s a military coup right in front of your window? If your lover turns out to be a Russian sniper? Or if you burn your eyes in the highest altitude desert of the world? You learn your lesson and move on.
The journey takes me past 8,000-meter-high mountains in Pakistan, through temples in India, to the safe shores of Australia, into the driest desert in the world in Chile and Bolivia – and in the end back to Germany. Breathlessly, I let my intuition and instincts guide me, experienced the highs and lows of traveling alone. I begans to see the world from a different angle, and discovered life in all its different facets and forms.
