THE STORY:

Our Motto

Keep your nerves on sharp curves!

Let’s start of with a quote…

“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others...for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received and am still receiving.”

Albert Einstein - “Living Philosophies”

 

To state it right from the beginning, yeah we're kinda on a crazy mission here. 

 

What is our plan?

We're planing on doing a trip from Europe to Asia, from Austria to Mongolia, from Vienna to Ulaanbaatar. 

But not by plane (Yeah it would be the easy way, but where would be the adventure in that...), we will do it in a car, no fancy high class super machine which is probably more advanced than an space station. 

Our plan is to take a nice small and cheap car which can be driven on the limits. 

 

Why are we doing this?

But it's not just a fun expedition. We are also trying to set a sign. A sign for the past, the present and the future, a sign for culture, difference and similarity. Furthermore a sign for tolerance, acceptance, peace and understanding. Or let's say it in an other way - a sign for humanity. A journey through time, for understanding and appreciation of what we have and need and against discrimination, and false judgment. 

 

Everyone has his or her preconceptions when it comes to specific things and or cultures. Most of them due to education, television and suchlike. We made it to our mission to show how it really is, without glasses of illusion. Main focus here will be the problem of poverty. What is poverty? What are the reason for it in specific parts of the world? How does society copes with it? How does a specific culture copes with that issue? And what does it mean to be poor, is it a money, belongings and/or emotional thing? Is it one of them, is it neither or is it both? And what's the role of culture and education in all of that?

 

What do we want to show?

We want to raise awareness for the beauty that lies across the borders of the lands we count as the first world. A world were the common WE seems to be more of an social media based concept than a real life thing. 

We all are humans, it shouldn’t depend from where we are from, what we do for a living, what we believe in and things like that. 

We want to celebrate the similarities that show themselves in these omnipresent differences.

And so we come back to the pint we started with Einsteins quote…

 

How do we want to show it?

We are planning to make a documentary, a movie about our experiences, a movie whose sole aim is to show the unedited reality, whether it maybe painful, uncomfortable, daring, carefree whatever the feelings be on our journey we intend to show it with no filter! Without blindfold straight in to see what the world and its people have to offer and how we humans divide ourselves into different classes.

A journey through time from the highpoint of a culture the there lowest ones. From breathtaking breakthrough to hidden secrets and mysterious backdoors in history.
