Home is Elsewhere (Libro)
Heinz Stücke is back where he started: in Hövelhof, the German village he happily cycled away from half a century ago. He visited 196 countries, got through 21 passports, and ended up with a tidy number of 100,000 photos to sort out. He came across Pelé, got pocket money from Haile Selassie, and even slept under the arms of Christ the Redeemer. He cycled more than 648.0000 kilometers, most of them on an ordinary gents' bike, and spent the final five years of his trip on a Brompton folding bike. Dutch travel writer Eric van den Berg visited the now 75 year old cyclist to get an answer to that most pressing question: why? And a team of graphic designers steadily wore it way through his vast collection of photos, journal, notes and other pile of memorabilia. Heinz 'just wanted to see it all'. This comes thorough in his daily routines, unexpected encounters and inevitable mishaps of an adventurist and 'Einzelganger'. 'Home is elsewhere, a unique record of an incredible journey, shows it all.
