The Mount Everest Base camp is at 5364 meters above sea level. It is an 8 to 16 days hike to get there, and in total, the journey takes about 12 to 22 days, depending on the way how you depart from Kathmandu and which way you go. I’m about to go on this big journey, and the big question is: How do I prepare for that?
Renting a Tuk-tuk in Sri Lanka and be the driver, deciding where and when you go? Taking new friends in and explore this incredible country? Does that sound good? Well, that’s precisely what I did.
How many times were you sitting already in the back of a Tuk-tuk? How many times did you got annoyed by Tuk-tuk drivers? Yeah, I know a lot of times. But what about driving your own Tuk-tuk all across Sri Lanka?
Sri Lanka was just amazing. I loved every second here, and I regret not spending more time there. Here are my reasons why also you should visit this fantastic island nation.

Let’s be honest, Indian city are mostly not the preferred places to spend your days, chaotic, dirty, loud, and full of annoying tuk-tuk drivers. But Jaipur is actually different, and there is some charm within the city.
Food and trying different cuisines is one of the best things while traveling. Discovering new things and just randomly order something without really knowing what it is are my favorite things to do. These randomly chosen dishes are mostly the best, and you’ll probably find your new favorite recipe like that. And one thing I can tell you already, the food you know from home is totally different than the food in the country itself. So, if you don’t like the Chinese restaurant around the corner, wait until you are in China – it is a different world.
One year on the road, one year alone in the big amazing world, one year without a place to call home and one year full of action. How is it to live on the road? And how did I change in the process? Which were the best, and what were the worst moments?
