Us 2 & Contacts


This is us…celebrating our 1 year anniversary on the road, during our first tour along the Silk Road to SE Asia in 2013-14.

You can also find Jens on Facebook and Instagram. He enjoys paragliding, sailing, music, cars and more. Helen likes to try them all, then just tags along.

Needless to say we both love travelling and try to get away as often as we can.

Mighty Bruce is our trusty steed. A Toyota Landcruiser from 2006, rebuilt for travellers like us. By the way, he’s so-called because Bruce is the name Australians give all their blokes, and because he’s not “mighty” at all: he’s actually rather dainty!

From mid April 2016, apart from some breaks for work, we’re taking the slow road to Iran, a destination we’ve been trying to visit for two years and are now very excited to be finally on our way.

You see our plan and progress on the Route Map page.

You can get in touch with us down the usual lines:

Helen: +49 173 927 5526
Jens (WhatsApp only): +49 160 9382 4574


Leave us a comment and we’ll reply to you personally by email.

  1. Hi Helen, hi Jens, hope you are still fine and healthy! Would be great to share your experience on the current situation on the eastern route through Africa as I am planning the trip southwards for end of 2018. Looking forward to your answer on my email if you find the time, thank you very much in advance! All the best, Frank


    1. Ibrahim: great to meet you and even better to see you again in Harare!
      Hope you enjoyed Mutare and wish you all the best for the rest of your trip, your new studies and the great work you’re going to achieve afterwards. Hugs, Helen & Jens
