Die Taschen sind gepackt und das Tandem ist auf ein minimales Mass von 183x23x75 zerlegt. In 6 Stunden sind wir hoffentlich im Flieger nach Malaysia und machen sozusagen eine Reise in die Zukunft. Aus Schweiz minus 4h = Lokalzeit wird dann plötzlich Schweiz plus 7h = Lokalzeit.

Hey, und noch so nebenbei habe ich hier ein „Reisehöhenprofil“ dargestellt. Es zeigt die Höhen aller Ausgangsorte seit wir unterwegs sind. Noch witzig, doch es bringt eigentlich überhaupt nichts. So schlägt man sich die Zeit tot, bis zum Abflug… 🙂


During our travel I started programming a filemaker based database and now it’s getting more and more functions.

I like to do databases and solve problems make it good to use. So now after 11 month of traveling the database can handle this:

  • the database works with fmtouch for the iPhone so you can sync!
  • usually daily information about country, route, altitude of start and endpoint, travel part
  • cycling time, distance, up- and downhill
  • adding elevation profile and gps track
  • weather, overnighting and breakdown information
  • it counts cycling days, other transportation and rest days. Even with combination of like cyling and others transportation (short busride between), crossing a border 40% cycling first country and 60% the second and so on.
  • all finance with first budget, either by travel part or more detailed by travel part and country.
  • categories of finance: food, hosting, misc., short transportation, far transp., activities, acquirement and costs at home like taxes or insurance (this is separated from the travel part)
  • control of budget, actual and expansion for the rest days by travel part or either detailed by country.
  • control of average costs of all categories.
  • html export detailed list of each day sorted by country or just a country total
    (selecting countries to export) like these records
  • possibility to export each field in a excel file and much more formats

May you figured out – that’s not my first language ;-), so I didn’t like to translate all the fields, tables, scripts, list and so on… if you see mistakes, feel free and tell me or don’t mind! 😉

If anybody is interested let me know and I’ll send you the filemaker file and may if there are some people more, I’ll write a documentation… but so far it’s good for people who are not afraid of computer and may know how to work with filemaker.
