WIN THE WINNER
The sky is the limit.
Win(fried) is a businessman and entrepreneur with heart and soul. This fact doesn’t prevent him to follow his personal vision of setting out towards the world with the same passion.
Originally he planned to travel from the North Cape to Sicily on his bike within an acceptable time period of three months. During the course of his reveries it became increasingly apparent, that his wife (that’s me) will come along with him, a truck will be the perfect equipment and it will be a journey with no time limit.
If Win has started something, he goes consequently through with it. He is a very tough guy – whether eating (good and plenty is allowed), working, doing sports or making plans.
Whatever he does, he loves to do it with fun and creativity. He is such a positive person and with his impish nature he always makes you laugh.
The fact that Win enjoyed a solid education in „How to survive adventures“ with Winnetou when he was just a boy, reflects how excellently prepared we are for our tour. He is therefore a master in healing open wounds with fresh leaves and forrest soil, for example.
However it sounds quite comforting I will pack some disinfection spray and plasters just in case forrest soil unfortunately is out of stock.
Who is Winnetou?
Winnetou, chief of the Apaches, is a fictional Native American hero of several novels written in German by Karl May (1842–1912), one of the best selling German writers of all time with about 200 million copies worldwide.
Winnetou became the chief of the tribe of the Mescalero Apaches (and of the Apaches in general, with the Navajo included) after his father Intschu-tschuna and his sister Nscho-tschi were slain by the white bandit Santer. He rode a horse called Iltschi (“Wind”) and had a famous rifle called “Silberbüchse” (“The Silver Gun”, a double-barrel rifle whose stock and butt were decorated with silver studs). Old Shatterhand became the blood brother of Winnetou and rode the brother of Iltschi, called Hatatitla (“Lightning”).
With A Dream & A Truck for us, Win and Petra, a personal lifetime dream comes true. We are on a world tour to experience the beauty of our planet. It’s not advisable to be in a hurry for such a world tour. That’s why we take our time. We have no strictly defined route for our tour with the truck, we rather enjoy to find our way by intuition. That’s quite exciting, sometimes adventurous and definitely a gain in experience.
Not always every thing goes according to plan. Those moments ask for our flexibility. It sometimes poses a big challenge to take things as they are. This means to take a deep breath and keep cool to find a new way or a proper solution.
We’ll keep our fingers crossed for ourselves, hope that our truck will be fine and we’ll be fit as a fiddle. With curiosity we gaze at the world and we are happy about the great experiences we will expect. It’s a great thing for us if you have fun reading our blog. Thank you very much.
