The Forbidden Journey: How Two East Germans Fled to China to Go West

I found this article about a year ago for the first time and since I think that this story as a damn awesome one, I wanted to dig it out again and share it with a bigger audience.

It is an article by the German news magazine Der Spiegel (non German speakers don’t worry, it’s in English) and tells the story of two young people who tried to get from East Berlin to China. Be it by walking, hitchhiking or by train.

So if you are one of those people that can’t get enough of personal, adventurous stories that have historical value and are romantic at the same time, the article below is just perfect for you.

Enjoy and have a nice day! 🙂
