Back in 2017 we made a decision to pursue our dream of living an independent and mobile life, traveling across the world in a tiny house on wheels for the years to come. The first milestone was to choose and find a truck that is up for the task. After a lot of research, exploring several options, speaking to different people, we decided for the Steyr 12M18. A truck built specifically for the A... read more
What is so special about a floor that I dedicate this blog entry to it. Well, that’s what I thought when I started this project, too. Some time later I realise that the floor is a central piece of work that needs to be planned well in order to have a good foundation for the rest. Read all about how and why we have build up the floor and what material has been used for it.
In May this year our cabin was finally delivered to Austria. After about 1,5 year of planning we can put theory into practice. For this we took a couple of weeks of and moved ourselves from Vienna into the Weinviertel, the north eastern part of Austria, right at the border to Czech Republic. This is where we will spend a lot of time this year. Here we have found a temporary home for our cabin... read more
This is a key milestone for us. Yes, the cabin has made the long way from Cherkasy/Ukraine to Austria. In a small village 70 km north of Vienna we found a place for it. On this memorable day at around 9.30 am in the morning the cabin has been unloaded, wheels added and pushed into the warehouse. Now the "real work" on our side can begin.
The usual procedure when you buy an empty cabin with Krug Expedition is that once ready the... read more
We've looked at a number of different cabin producers prior to signing a contract with Krug Expedition. One of the key reasons why we decided for Krug was the great collaboration we've experienced in the validation phase and the constructive input we've received in all conversations either over the phone, in Schladming or when we've visiting their production facilities in the Ukraine. Once the contract was signed and the specification of the f... read more
Now that we are getting started with building our new home I thought I share some of the details. We recently signed the contract with Krug Expedition in Austria for building the actual cabin and some other items. Work has started already and will be completed soon. This is the foundation. Once complete, the interior we plan to do ourselves with some help from experts. To get to this point we’... read more
In September 2017 we’ve made a decision to start turning our dream into reality. This is to stop working and start traveling and exploring the world. The first step was to buy a Steyr 12M18 as the basis of an expedition vehicle. This decision was a tough one. Not because of what to buy and where. “Do we really want to do this?”, was the thing to decide. Now, one year later, we have to take a m... read more
We have been to Croatia many times and we know that especially along the coast line road cycling is not a good idea for many reasons. Can it be that the peninsula of Istria is different? We wanted to find out for ourselves in preparation for our next 24h cycling marathon taking place in early July. It was not necessarily our plan to come here in early June. This decision was made on short noti... read more
Today is a memorable day for us. We get up very early in the morning to take the first flight from Vienna to Frankfurt at 6:10 am. After many months of researching, discussing what makes most sense for us and how we see our future travels develop we decided that it is time to make decisions. From Frankfurt we drive with a rental car to a company called Excap. Stephan, the owner, is well known... read more
