About Me! I'm Tim Köhler, currently on a global adventure behind the wheel of my trusty car. Inspired by the words of Christopher McCandless, who famously said that happiness is only real when shared, I'm keen to extend an invitation for others to join me on this journey. In my recent years, I've been immersed in the world of research as a diligent research assistant. However, my true essence thrives on openness, sociability, and a hunger for adventure. I find solace in the unknown and delight in the unexpected twists that life throws my way. As a seasoned traveler with a penchant for athleticism, I've spent the past seven years scaling heights and exploring breathtaking landscapes with climbing groups across the globe. Yet, I also cherish the simple pleasures of winding down with a cold beer or a glass of wine around the warmth of a campfire at day's end.

For accommodations, I embrace a diverse mix of experiences, ranging from wild camping in breathtaking natural landscapes to staying at campsites with all the amenities, and even indulging in unique alternative accommodations along the way. For the initial and final two days of our journey, we'll retreat to comfortable apartments nestled within the heart of the city. Any questions about the trip? You can let me know in the Q&A section!
