From October 2023 to February 2004, I went a second RTW trip. The map below shows my route (flights in light blue, overland trips in red). More detailed reports are posted on my blog (with full details mostly only in German, though).

Route Map


  • October 1 to October 7: Stopover in the United States of America


    I spent the first few days in the United States of America – mainly to get over the jet lag. But it was also nice to spend a few days in New York City and San Francisco again.

  • October 7 to October 27: Island hopping in the South Pacific


    My first longer stop was in French Polynesia, where I spent almost three weeks island hopping.

  • October 28, 2023 to January 11, 2024: Land of the Long White Cloud


    The big destination of my trip, however, was (once again) New Zealand.

  • January 11, 2023 to February 20, 2024: Banana Pancake Trail


    Finally, I explored a hew highlights of Southeast Asia.
