What a year… for Tim





Checking my Facebook Update the last few days I realised a lot of friends are posting their year… in photos. Now here is my opportunity to give a quick review for Tim.

Tim arrived in my postbox exactly 365 days ago – to clarify: Tim is my rather small (i.e. 7cm) tall travel companion – together we have checked out some awesome destinations over the last twelve months.

We have travelled to 5 continents. Tim has accumulated 123,259 Asia Status miles (i.e. if I would have been smart enough to register him with Cathay Pacific he would have made it to Diamond membership straight away). He has gone AWOL 5 times, always resulting in a replacement arriving shortly afterwards at my doorstep.

He visited empty beaches, sunken ships, wild Gorillas, wild jungles, crazy desert parties and never explored mountains – He even went by drone over the houses of Hong Kong (http://youtu.be/oDkDXmoJCZQ)

In other words: Tim is a true explorer!

So here are the stats and rankings:

 Countries travelled (20): Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, England, Netherlands, Italy, China, Hong Kong, Macao, Japan, Thailand, Vanuatu, Qatar, USA, Australia, Uganda, Kenya, Congo, India

Asia-Europe Flights: 14

Times on Lantau Peak: 3x

Mountains climbed:

Zhouda (China): 5350m  (highest point reached)

Mt Kenya – Batian (Kenya): 5199m

Mt Stanley/ Rwenzori (Uganda/ Congo): 5109m

Gran Paradiso (Italy) : 4061m


Coldest Place: Harbin (Ice Festival) -32C

Most explosive Place: Vanuatu (Erupting Volcanoe)

Secretive Place: California (Top of Hangar XXX – errr- correction, Tim has never been there!)

With so many experiences: Thanks for sharing the journey & all the best for 2015!!
