Claim a part of the adventure



This is my shot on turning this social travel project into something sustainable. I looked for a relevant, fun and valuable way to make this a win win for everyone involved. People, companies, brands, charities and myself. Please take your time to read this post and I hope you also...

Claim a part of the adventure


This is how it works


You can claim a part of the trajectory that I follow around the world. Once you claimed your part it's yours forever. I made sure that every party involved, whether it's people, companies or brands can claim a part and get something valuable in return.


1 km = € 1

Past, Present and Future

Claim a part of the past (orange pins and lines on the map)

The past years friends and followers have been shaping the adventure as it happened but only saw bits and pieces via the social networks I use. I focused on following their lead and tackled some serious challenges on my journey. I'm now on a break from travelling and want to share the past adventures with you here.

By claiming a part of the past you unlock that part of the adventure. I then start writing and editing stories and content relevant to that part and publish it here on the blog. This helps me to focus my time and energy on getting the story out.


Claim a part of the future (red pins and lines on the map)

By claiming a part of the future you make it possible for this adventure to continue. Currently I'm preparing for my guitar challenge on the west coast of North America.
