My main subject is to circle the world by MOTORCYCLE.  I own a lot of information as well about other kinds of going Around-The-World. Especially I own the old books about round-the-world. But I cannot do the job to collect, summarise and publish all this alone here. So, if  YOU know interesting tours of travelling Around-The-World please inform me. Even if you know good books about this subject.

Bernd Tesch has been working in this field since 1970. In this times I had to write letters and to phone or to visit the World-Around-Travellers to get contact / information. Later Fax helped. In 1991 I visited the most famous motorcycle-travellers in Denmark, in 1993 in Britain, in 1994 in USA and in between many in Europe (France, Germany, Netherland, Switzerland). In 1999-2000 I visited famaous Mc-Travllers in Australia. In october 2000 I saw Alberto Granda, best mc-travel-friend of Ernesto "Che" Guevara in CUBA. Many of  Motorcycle Travellers Around-The-World have been at my yearly Motorcycle-Meeting for World-Travellers in april. In 1998 there have been 20 within 300 participants. In 2000 11 of them. Nobody knows more World-Around-Travellers in person as Bernd Tesch. I own the largest archive of World-Around-Travellers: 10 file-boxes full packed (90 cm wide).

To find all this and all my activities was a "life-long job" and cost me a lot of money. Since many years I am working in a new book called "Motorrad-Welt-Reisen" = Motorcycle-World-Around-Travels. All books about "Around-The-World" by motorcycle which have been published until 1994 are published in my in German written, but very international understandable book called "Motorrad-Abenteuer-Touren" = Motorcycle-Adventure-Tours (432 pp, 500 pictures / drawings. About 264 Motorcyle World-Tours. ISBN 3-9800099-55-5. DM 38.90). I own all this books in all languages.

If there is shown "Book:" under the traveller and you want to read / order this you can check if it is still available: >> >> German or English version >> Bestelliste or order. If you find this book there you can order it. I offer about 183 international available Motorcycle-TRAVEL-Books for sale.

I have had many discussions what you can call a Motorcycle-Tour "Around-The-World". There does not exist only ONE definition. This defintion has changed many times by time since 1912 / 3, because motorcycles who were availbale and the conditions of the known / unknown roads and their infrastructure with water / food / petrol. Some riders thing that you must have done it in ONE tour. Others thing that you must have been in each continent. American Jim Rogers things that you must have crossed each continent in one tour (covered 6 continents). Australian David McGonical visited all seven continents (including Antarctica) AND all time-tones with his motorcycle !
Bernd Tesch thinks that we all should be very tolerant to each other: The earliest Motorcycle-Travellers had quite different conditions like Clancy in 1912 -13. And although British Martyn Swain rode 4,5 years "in the world" he did not make it in total missing an easy last part. I even think it is interesting to know who planned to ride Around-The-World, and started but did not finish it for different reasons...

If you are a World-Around-Traveller or plan to do this or "on the road" already or know anyone who is not listed here, please send my any details, addresses, publications, homepages and most important: best pictures.

PLEASE give me at first a complete view like this EXAMPLE-BLOCK  in THIS STYLE in English:

Would be wonderful to see you if you are one ! If you are a Mc-WA-Traveller and promise to come it will be marked here in internet under your name ! TRY hard to be there in Germany / Belgium.

I am very grateful to all the individuals who knew that I am working in this field. They informed me since 1970 worldwide by meeting me, phoning, sending letters, later faxes and emails since 1994 about World-Around-Travellers. Without their help I could not get to this high level. This internet-list had to be done in many days but too quick, because I did not have enough time. So please give me your "pardon" that there are mistakes inside of the information and a lot in my language.
At least you will never have seen such a huge collection of information in internet or literature.

Around-The-World on food, by bicycle, in a baloon, by sailing-boat
(Summarises by year of start)

10.10.2001 The subject above is to circle the world by MOTORCYCLE.  I own a lot of information as well about other kinds of going Around-The-World. Especially the old books about round-the-world by car. But I cannot do the job to collect, summarise and publish all this alone here. So, if  YOU know interesting tours of travelling Around-The-World please inform me. Even if you know good books about this subject.

How many countries does the World have?
To answer this question exactly is difficult because this changes many times in the earlier years. I never could read a publication about this. Have you seen one?

1985: Emilio Scotto: The 172 countries that were in the world in 1985 now in 1998 are 215.
1998: Peter Forwood informed me that there are 247 countries in 3 categories in the world according to Rand McNally atlas. There are 191 totally independent countries at all.
2001: The German leading book "Fischer Alamach 2001" says: 193 countries

10-20 billion (= Millarden) years ago
The universe started to exist somehow.

4.5 billion years ago
The Sun and Earth were created. The earth is one of nine big planets of the sun. Possibly out of change of gravity in the universe it was caused that dust attracted each other at first to smaller parts which are getting bigger and bigger. Finally becoming big rocks which attracted each other to big planets. Most of them were attracted by the biggest part which is the sun. The nine planets could escape somehow the gravity of the sun and started to circle around the sun. All of the men / women who have been in satelits speak about the "blue planet earth" because about 70 % of the earth is water.

1-3 billion years ago
First signs of life on the earth.  After the earth got colder the first cells grew in microbe "Archeos"  (= das Ursprüngliche, the basic). If this came by meteroits from other planets or developed on earth, is not proved so far.

25.000 years ago
The "homo sapiens" exists.

20.09.1519 - 07.09.1522
Magellan (= Magalhaes, Fernando de) (Portuguese)
+ Around-The-World by ship first time. Im Auftrage des spanischen Königs Karl I verließ Magellan Spanien mit fünf Schiffen. Er wollte die von Portugal besetzten Molukken (Gewürzinseln) für Spanien zurückholen. Deshalb wollte er diese auf einem neuen Seeweg westlich um die Erde erreichen. Maggelan und dann Elcano umsegelten als erste die Erde.Von fünf Schiffen kam eines zurück, von 237 Mann Besatzung nur 18. Die Gewürze reichten, um die gesamte Fahrt zu finanzieren. Die Fahrt erweiterte gewaltig das Wissen um das  Erdbild, seine Entfernungen und bewies die kugelige Gestalt der Erde.
Route: Spanien (Sanlúcar) - 12.1519 an Rio de Janeiro - ab 10.01.1519 versuchte er vergeblich über die Flußmündung La Plata Amerika zu durchqueren - den Winter verbringt er in der Bucht von San Julián in Patagonien, wo er eine Meuterei niederschlagen muß - bei der Weiterfahrt umsegelt er beim "Kap de las Virgines" in 21 Tagen die etwa 600 km gefährliche Felseninselnstraße, die SAmerka von Feuerland trennt. Sie wurde später nach ihm "Magellan-Straße" genannt -  am 28.11.1520 segelt er in das große Meer ein. Er nannte es den "Stillen Ozean", da er in drei Monaten und 20 Tagen Seegelzeit keinen Sturm erlebte - am 06.03.1521 erreichten er die Ladronen (Diebsinseln, heutige Marianen) - 16.03.1521 an Lazarusinseln (Philippinen) - Magallan versuchte mit Gewalt das Christentum einzuführen, aber Magellan wurde bei einem Kampf am 27.04.1521 auf der philippinischen Insel Matan getötet.  - Unter dem Kommando von Sebastian de Elcano erreichten die beiden verbliebenen Schiffe über Nordborneo (Nordkalimantan) die Maluku (Molucken). Obwohl die Insel von Portugiesen besetzt waren, konnten sie die erwünschten Gewürze tauschen.  Mit nur noch einem seetüchtigen Schiff  "Victoria" traten sie die Heimfahrt an, indem sie die von Portugiesen benutzen Seewege meideten. - Kap der Guten Hoffnung - Kapverden - Spanien (Sanlucar).
B.T.: Elcano was the first human who circled the world by ship.

1577 -1580

Verne, Jules (French)
Around-The-World vision. The very well known French writer Jules wrote the phantastic novel (Roman) in which Phileas Fogg won the bed to circle the world in 80 days. This novel became very famous and was translated in many languages. The journey was the expression of dreams of people of that time "to circle the world" after the British finished a railway in India:

They are mentioned on page 44 in "Jorden rundt paa cykle" by Kai Thorenfeldt. He found their names in a registerbook in a hotel in Basra. I think they are also mentioned somewhere by Palle Huld. In a periodical from 1926 I found a photo of Svend Heiberg and Axel Swane on a MC. "Around the world" but no other text at all. If you are interested, I can send you a copy of the

+ Around-The-World by ?? Gustav Stavianik. Sztavianik
7 Jahre um die Welt.
Gustav Sztavjanik (* 6. Juli 1907 in Wien ; † 1944 ) war ein österreichischer Radsportler, der in den Jahren 1924 bis 1931 zusammen mit dem indischen Journalisten Fram Jamsetjie Davar die Welt mit dem Fahrrad umrundete.
Durch Zufall lernte der radsportbegeisterte Gustav Sztavjanik den indischen Radreisenden Fram Jamsetjie Davar in Wien kennen und schloss sich ihm zu einer Weltumrundung per Fahrrad an. Die Reise führte die beiden in den Jahren 1924 bis 1931 durch vier verschiedene Kontinente:
Europa (u. a. Tschechoslowakei , Deutschland , Schweiz , Frankreich , Holland sowie Skandinavien ), Afrika (erstmalige Durchquerung der Sahara per Fahrrad), Süd - und Nordamerika (zweimalige Überquerung der Anden ), Asien sowie wieder zurück nach Wien, Österreich.
Auf ihrer Reise machten die beiden Abenteurer die Bekanntschaft verschiedener prominenter Persönlichkeiten, die sich für die Unternehmung interessierten und einen entsprechenden Eintrag in ihrem Autogramm- und Erinnerungsbuch hinterließen (u. a. Charles Lindbergh , Sven Hedin , Felix Graf von Luckner , der Boxer Jack Dempsey , Jawaharlal Nehru , Wilhelm II. ).
Dank einer nahezu weltweiten Begeisterung für den Radsport erfuhren die beiden Weltreisenden immer wieder Unterstützung durch die jeweiligen lokalen Rad- und Sportvereine. Sztavjanik wurde während der Reise wiederholt als Teilnehmer zu Radrennen eingeladen und stellte z. B. zusammen mit einem chilenischen Rennpartner einen Südamerika-Rekord im 24-Stundenrennen auf.

Heinz Stücke (geboren ca. 1940) ist ein Rekord- deutschen Paar-und Fernverkehr Radfahrer .
In 1962, the 22-year-old Stücke quit his work as a tool- and die-maker and rode out of his home town, Hövelhof , North Rhine-Westphalia , Germany , on a three-speed bicycle, with a plan to see the world. Im Jahr 1962, 22-jährige Stücke beenden die seine Arbeit als ein Werkzeug-und Formenbau-Maker und ritt aus seiner Heimatstadt, Hövelhof , Nordrhein-Westfalen , Deutschland , auf einem Drei-Gang-Fahrrad, mit einem Plan zu sehen der Welt. He has never since returned to Hövelhof, stating that his extraordinary desire to travel has been partly motivated by his not wanting to return home to his factory work and "the very small-minded people" of his village. Er hat seitdem nie wieder in Hövelhof, die besagt, dass seine außergewöhnlichen Wunsch zu reisen wurde teilweise "motiviert durch seine Fabrik nicht fehlen, um nach Hause zurückkehren, um seine Arbeit und die sehr kleinen gleichgesinnten Menschen" seines Dorfes.

In the early 1980s, after two decades on the road, Stücke decided to attempt to visit every country in the world. In den frühen 1980er Jahren, nach zwei Jahrzehnten auf der Straße, beschloss Stücke zu versuchen, jedes Land der Welt zu besuchen. Between 1962 and 2006 he cycled more than 539,000 kilometres (335,000 miles) and visited 192 countries. Zwischen 1962 und 2006 radelte er mehr als 539.000 Kilometer (335.000 Meilen) und 192 Länder besucht.

In 2002 he rode across Canada with a partner on a Pino Tandem recumbent bicycle , built and sponsored by Hase Spezialräder. Im Jahr 2002 ritt er in Kanada mit einem Partner auf einem Tandem Pino Liegerad Fahrrad , gebaut und gesponsert von Hase Spezialräder.

After YOU Traveller die:
01.08.2000 After I updated this homepage second time with some hundred hours of work Patricia and I took some hours off. We wanted to relax in the nearby forest EIFEL conquering a water canal maximum 3 meters wide in the end coming out of the ground about ca. 9 kms somewhere up the hills. We both liked the nature very much with all the greens, sunshine and shade. During this walk we loved to discover a group of some hundred years old beech-trees (Buchen).
Then Patricia said: "In my next life I would like to be a beech-tree". This caused some thoughts in me: After we die 90 % water of our body will first go in the ground. It could be that a part of this water will help to create another plant or even a tree. So you mc-traveller could be a part of a beech-tree. Some of this water will evaporate in the air. Then the wind will blow your water somewhere and it will come down on earth or in the sea again. If the water comes down on earth a plant could grow with your water. A Motorcycle-Traveller could eat this plant. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again. Or your rain could fall in a small river and another mc-traveller drinks clear water out of this river. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again.

The very rest of your 10 % material could be eaten by bacteries. Bigger animals could eat thess. Possibly this animal could be eaten by another animal and this by a mc-traveller. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again. Possibly this mc-traveller will read this homepage. Then your soul is connected with your material again. This are some possible ways that YOU Mc-Traveller never die and will live for long times as a Motorcycle-TRAVELLER.

5 billion (Milliarden) years later ALL Travellers will die:
Sun will kill all Motorcycle-Travellers. The sun will have extended so much in size that she reaches the earth. All the heat will destroy all life on earth including ALL MOTORCYCE-TRAVELLERS. That´s it !

I hope you liked reeding this. I am just waiting for YOUR email helping me to update A LIFELONG job with passion.
