Over a bottle of wine these two Berlin adventurers decided to quit their jobs and sell all their belongings to travel the world on the most unusual device, a trike, a 475kg motorized hang glider.
Travelling in the open cockpit two seat ultra-light, hang-glider is harder than you think. They can only travel with 12kg of luggage and when the weather is clear. The couple usually sleep in a tent under the wing of the trike wherever it's parked on the airfield.
Since 2012, Andreas Zmuda and Doreen Kröber have seen over 40 countries and traveling 50,000km.
They’ve circled over Rio, crossed the Andes and made one emergency landing on a remote beach in Ecuador.
Their next stop will be top head across Europe and then on to Africa, where the couple plan to fly over elephants. Ultimately, they intend to end up in Sydney, Australia, flying over 100 countries and clocking up 160,000km.
Zmuda started his career flying in Cape Town, South Africa, but got his license in Florida.
