My name is Florian Wagner. I am a 49-year-old photographer from a small town in the Bavarian Alps called „Oberammergau“.
I have been an adventure photographer for 25 years, working for magazines and newspapers such as National Geographic, Stern (a weekly news magazine published in Hamburg, Germany), Süddeutsche Zeitung (one of the most important German newspaper, published in Munich).
In 2013, some friends and I crossed Germany from South to North on horseback. Our journey began at the Eibsee – a lake at the bottom of the „Zugspitze“, Germany’s highest mountain – and after 66 days and 1.720 kilometers on horseback we reached our destination – the „Lister Ellenbogen“ – a stretch of beach near the town of List – the northernmost point in Germany on the Island of Sylt. Our „Abenteuer Deutschland“ (in English „Adventure Germany“) was a complete success and…
We got hooked.
Now, we are planning to discover Ireland on horseback; following Celtic paths to ancient Places of Power as ambassadors for Natural Horse-Man-Ship. We will set out at Mizen Head and hopefully reach our destination Malin Head after about 800 miles (1.300 kilometers) and five weeks of travel.
„Abenteuer Deutschland“ garnered a lot of media attention – more than 90 reports (all positive) on TV, Radio, Print, Social Media and a Multimedia Tour all over Germany and German speaking Europe which reached approximately 80 million people.
We touched the heart of so many people with what they called: „Living their dream“.
At the end of our journey a collection of our impressions will be published in a coffee table book (by German publishing house Knesebeck) and in a 45-minute documentary. During our ride we will post regular updates of our progress on our website as well as on Facebook and Instagram.
