Five years ago, Jens Jacob, a Germany-born entrepreneur,
embarked on an ambitious journey to explore the world, with the view to
understanding different cultures and traditions. To accomplish this, Jens set
out in his 1965 Volkswagen Kombi Van, nicknamed ‘Bluee’. The around-the-world trip was in a vehicle
that’s almost 50 years old! Of course, it helps that the van is equipped with a
small kitchen, a water tank, spares, tools and some books.
Jens started the journey alone, but now travels with his
wife Cynthia, whom he met in Dubai. The duo have travelled over 26 countries,
over 60,000km, including The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal,
Italy, Greece, Turkey, Dubai, Oman and Iran. They are now in India.
The India leg of their journey began in Mumbai and will
continue along coastal roads in the country, until the couple finally leaves
for Nepal and Tibet, via West Bengal, and then on to Indonesia, via Vietnam,
says a press release from Volkswagen.
With extensive travel comes deep introspection, and Jens
carries with him experiences and learnings to last a lifetime, that are
captured brilliantly in his eBooks, which are available at
