Exploring the world via motorcycle. These are images I've created along the way. See more stories and photos on my facebook page...
When he was younger Rainer dreamed about riding his motorcycle around the world. In German he lists far off places he's always wanted to visit: Kairo, Kalifornien, Jamaika...
But in the interim years something happened that ended all of that. These days Rainer spends his afternoons rolling cigarettes, sipping tall glasses of Weissbier, and wondering what it would've all been like.
You've gotta love a town that memorializes eating children as travel snacks
Looking like Stonehenge Jenga on acid, the Kirche Zur Heiligsten Dreifaltigkeit (Church of the Most Holy Trinity) sits on a grassy hill overlooking Vienna. Designed by sculptor/architect Fritz Wotruba, this brutalist wonder consists of 152 asymmetrically arranged concrete blocks weighing from 1.8 to 141 tons. #brutal_architecture

Forget crop circles, there is an alien artifact built literally in a middle of a field near the small town of Podgarić, Croatia. Either that or a sculptor named Dušan Džamonja created this magnificent structure in 1967 to honour the sacrifice the people of Moslavina made during World War II. Standing on a square pedestal, it is 10 meters tall, and 20 meters wide
A DC3 lies rotting at Zeljava Underground Airbase, on the border of Croatia and Bosnia. It was abandoned in the Serbo-Croatian War in 1992
Spent bullet shells bask in the sun on the 5th floor of a bank that was repurposed by Croat forces as a sniper tower during the Bosnian War.
From this vantage point assassins fired into the city, killing anyone unlucky enough to drift into their sights.
The bombed out remains of the Razvitak department store still stands in central Mostar. Destroyed during the '91 Bosnian War, it's now home to gypsies who drag in random pieces of paper to fuel fires during the winter.
This is the ministry
Fizzy drinks cans
A kitchen knife
And a ghost of a girl
Who runs and hides
Scratched in the wall in
This is how the
world will end - PJ Harvey
Zeko brings out more rounds of chalky white dough that will soon be hand scored, dashed with seasoning, and slid into a wood fired brick oven. The Ramadan Somun bread that emerges is nothing sort of magic.
Bubbled up and blistered with smoky char marks that perfectly accent the salt and black seed to create a wonderfully disciplined flavour profile.
This humble bread has a perfect gradation of texture. Crisp around the circumference, soft toward the center with a subtle dusting of flour.
If this is Allah's will, then I'm totally down with it.
Deep within a Bosnian mountain an obsolete four billion dollar military bunker is now being used as a contemporary art space. There are no signs telling you it's there and a guard will refuse entry unless you're accompanied by a local guide.
Its brilliance lies in its unorthodox nature. Thanks to the efforts of artists, Edo and Sandra Hozić, the ARK — Atomska Ratna Komanda, or Nuclear Command Bunker — contains fascinating artworks that deliberately co-opt and often juxtapose the perfectly preserved cold war infrastructure that houses them. I'll post more about this amazing space on facebook soon.
Looking like an artifact from an alien civilization, this monument authored by Miodrag Živković commemorates the Battle of Sutjesk, one of Yugoslavia's bloodiest WWII conflicts.
