Hey guys :)

Are you nuts about travelling? We too!

Who we are? Our names are Vanessa (nickname Nuss - engl.: nut) and Alexander (Andi). Vanessa is 23 and I am 25 years old. We were both born near the beautiful city Regensburg in Germany and met in high school (yeah, the romantic cliche). At the moment Vanessa is getting her Degree in Economics (focus on tourism) and I am getting my Degree in Wood Building and Construction. We are both huge TravelNuts and we just can’t fight the urge to see and explore all these incredible countries.

That’s why we decided, once we finally finish our University degrees, we would travel the world together for 18 months. 
And everything huge begins with an idea! So, the next step was to let our imagination run free. We talked, fantasized and created a wonderful plan. Our big adventure around the globe will start in March and will consist of three stages:
Stage one (6 months): travel from Germany to Singapore overland in our self-build campervan. (keep that in mind!)
Stage two (6 months): work in Australia to increase our holiday fund and gain some on the job experience.
Stage three (6 months): travel south and middle America again in a self-build campervan.

“If you can dream it, you can do it!” – this quote of Walt Disney is something everyone knows and should live by. But let’s be honest, it sounds easier than it is. Eventhough we both work at any given chance, money is very tight. Life is just not that cheap (would be great, right?) and a trip around the world can stomach one or two cash injections.
For that reason, we need you guys. We promise that we are doing our best to fulfill our dream, but maybe some of you want to take a little part in this unique journey. To fund our first van we would love your support.


Of course we also want to give back and offer you some inducements for your help.
For 10 € you will receive a scenic post card from the country of your choosing.
For 50 € we will give you a lift in a country of your choosing (e.g. We are all in Bangkok and you need a lift to Hua Hin? No problem, we'll give you a ride and you can check out our awesome van!)
For 100 € we will complete a given challenge set by you, e.g. overcome fear of hights and go skydiving, overcome fear of sharks and go cage diving, “just” touch a 8-legged creeper (psssst Vanessa hates spiders), use your imagination for more ideas.

Of course everything will be documented in our Blog and Youtube channel (are in creation at the moment) where we'll do our very best to keep everything up to date for you guys to take part in our 18 months adventure.
