Again and again hinted at, but never specifically put to the point, the questions asked by some:

What exactly are you planning on doing on your trip around the world?
How are you going to travel and how did you schedule it?
1. as many probably think, we will travel around a lot and also look for recovery phases. You need them too, especially when you have so much to do.

Ultimately, there are different areas:
– See how other disabled people are faring in their countries. What is the cultural and social position? Are there tendencies to implement the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and if so, how?
– What is understood elsewhere by inclusion and, if necessary, lived?
– How could we help change the situation on the ground? (Admittedly, a very difficult task)
– What can we learn and turn around from others in the above topic complex for Germany? (synergy effect)

– Show German society that wheelchair users can travel like anyone else and that in many cases the cliché of the poor, pitiful and helpless handicapped does not apply at all.
– Show other wheelchair users what is possible (always within the limits of handicap-related possibilities).
– Jump over your own shadow and do something completely crazy.
– To live together Again and again hinted at, but never specifically put to the point, the questions asked by some:

– To live together for a year first, to travel, to live…
– Get out of the comfort zone and encourage others to do the same.
– For Neele (I mentioned in a previous posting that she is in the Brotherhood) it also has personal backgrounds, as we will come to the place of work of one of her ancestors in southwestern Tanzania and visit fraternal missions in a few countries.

I certainly don’t need to mention that the whole thing is also an exciting and appealing company for us and our relationship with each other.

2. as already mentioned, we have planned a travel time of ~ 1 year.
Starting in Germany, we will travel through Europe with Interrail for 1 month. Then it goes over the Middle East to Africa and you can see the rest from the list that Neele published a few days ago.
That leaves 11 months for some countries before they return. In some we only have short visits, in others longer.
In the end, you can’t define it that precisely. The factor coincidence will certainly always change our plans, both positively and negatively.
But isn’t there just one more attraction?
