‘Nobody’s going to know about this absolutely incredible adventure if I don’t write it down. So, I figured I’d better start writing.’
That’s how I sat down behind my laptop on the island of Tuvalu in the South pacific and wrote down the first pages of my 7-year trip around the world. The beautiful stories, the amazing people I met along the way, the unbelievable places I was lucky enough to visit.
It just had to become a book...
I thought about what I would want the book of a world travelling photographer to be like. Should it be a book about how I took 195 photos in capitals? Or should it be an honest recount of everything that happens to a guy travelling alone around the world for 7 years? All the emotions, fears and excitement, horrors and loves? I chose the latter.
That is how Streets of the World – The Book became an in your face, honest and non-concealing travel book about a modern-day discovery of the world and its people.
Curious what I learned about humanity, life on this earth with my fellow humans and mostly about myself? You’ll find out in this book about my really one-of-a-kind project. But mostly enjoy the beauty of travel and discovery in a world that is still full of surprises.
