Torsten  Johannknecht - The World from Above


The crazy travel adventures of a giant

Before my girlfriend Bärbel and I set off, we gave a bit of thought to what was "special" about our trip round the world – something along the lines of: we only eat from mouth-blown plates; we take our hippopotamus Bernd with us everywhere we go; we take before-and-after photos of every loo we sit on.

But that's all rubbish. We were not going on a trip of self-discovery; we weren't trying to get away from it all. We just wanted to go on a perfectly normal trip round the world. That was the plan. But I am just too tall for that sort of thing. I measure 205 cm and with a body length like that I have already caused my share of sensations in some parts of the world – and sometimes reached my limits. That includes in the literal and painful sense of the word. The world is simply not meant for giants on journeys. Or could it be?
