About me

Andrea Erne

My name is Andrea Erne. I am a 24 years young and wild adventurer who will travel the world on foot in the future.

Even as a small child, I was fascinated by my environment. I learned early on what nature meant to my life. Animal and plant life, had always been close to my heart and so I knew even then that I was destined to live closer to them in the future.

I wanted to see the stars with my own eyes.
I wanted to hear the oceans with my own ears.
I wanted to smell the forests with my own nose.
I wanted to taste the herbs with my own tongue.
I wanted to feel the mountains with my own hands.

I wanted to discover the world and experience it nomadically in its most primal form.

Over time, life made it very difficult for me to hold on to my dream from long ago childhood days, until slowly and gradually I almost forgot about it.

In the meantime, a burning passion, an iron will and a firm determination have grown out of a blurred yet always palpable desire.

I made my dream my goal. I wanted to live my life, so I planned my huge and extreme adventure, put all my eggs in one basket and started to circumnavigate the world on foot in May 2023.
