The first Motomogli-Newsletter!


to get the next one directly in your inbox!

Dear readers,

welcome to the 1st Motomogli newsletter!

You already know what Mogli and I have been up to in the past few months, but thanks to Corona a lot has happened behind the scenes too!
Here a brief overview of what happened since the opening of the webshop in April:
• 1 tree for every order - Check out our forest!
• Partnership with Kendama-Europe
• New distribution center in India
• Updates, coming soon & future plans

1 tree for each order
Seeing that the sale of my book “Einmal mit der Katze um die Halbe Welt” got off to a good start and that we have been supported by so many lovely people since the beginning of our journey, I also wanted to give something back. And so I decided to plant a tree for every order in the shop.
In addition, anyone can place an order for additional trees via the shop without having to register anywhere. I will pay the transaction fees for tree donations and pass 100% of the donation on.
The price of the trees planted so far varies from 20ct to 10 € and thanks to your help, 165 trees are already growing in the virtual Motomogli forest!
In the next 20 years, our small forest is supposed to bind around 70 tons of CO²!

It may not be our fault that the world is the way it is, but we are the only ones who can change it. With this in mind, I would like to thank everyone who made it possible for me to plant this forest with their donation or order!
May our trees grow and flourish and mark the turning point for a more sustainable society!

Collaboration with Kendama-Europe

I am more than excited to announce that from now on, in cooperation with Kendama-Europe, we are offering Kendamas in the motomogli-shop!

Kendamas caught me in their spell from the very first time I held one in my hands. It‘s more than just a toy, it‘s a LOT of fun and I am convinced that every player will benefit from playing it! I want to help spreading the word about Kendamas and hope to see the community grow.
The idea for this arose when Marc Wibbels, the founder of Kendama-Europe and a personal friend, gifted me a box of Kendamas to support our trip. Thanks, Marc!

But what is a Kendama and what do I do with it?
In a nutshell, it is an ancient Japanese skill game. The principle is simple: You catch a ball (that is attached to a string) with the tip or one of the 3 bowls. Once you have learned this (or do a quick search on the internet) you will quickly realize that the possibilities for tricks are endless!

Kendamas are experiencing a boom in the western world and every day players upload hundreds of videos to social networks. Unsurprisingly, as it not only represents a counter-trend to our ever faster way of life, but also promotes, among other things, the concentration, coordination and balance of the player.
In Japan every child knows it and in some schools playing Kendama is even on the curriculum. But Kendamas are not just children's toys and are also enjoying increasing popularity with adults. Ninjas are said to have trained their precision with it, and sometimes Kendamas were even used as a drinking game!

I came across Kendamas in 2007, when they became popular in the rollerblading scene. I was immediately enthusiastic about the complexity that hides behind the simple principle and once I got started, was hooked right away!
Since then Kendamas have always accompanied me, at home or on my travels through the world. And they act as an ice-breaker too ;-) Wherever I pull out my Kendama, I meet curious people that want to try it out immediately.

Warehouse & Distribution Centre in India

--> FREE DELIVERY & DISCOUNTS for customers in India

We found a distribution center in Bangalore (Karnataka, India), which allows us to now ship all Indian orders FAST & FREE!

Since this cuts down on unnecessary costs, customers in India will also receive a 30% discount on all products made in India (the discount code „MADEININDIA“ must be used at checkout).

-stickers and key chains are made in India and already stocked up
-first box with Kendamas will arrive end of December (pre-orders are already possible)
-my book won’t be available in India (as it is only in German) but I can send it from Germany on request

We can deliver WORLDWIDE again and the Motomogli stickers and key chains are also back in stock!

English version of my book "Einmal mit der Katze um die Halbe Welt"
We are currently looking for a publisher who would like to publish my book in English. But since it’s been very well received in the German-speaking areas, I'm in good spirits that something will come up. If you happen to know someone, I’d be happy if you could put us in touch!
Coming soon:
- New Motomogli-Logo! At the end of our latest video (below) you can already get a sneak peek
- Super comfortable Motomogli (go-) Corona masks, featuring the new logo
- Screensavers for free download
Future plans:
- Calendar for 2022 ;-)

More on this in the next newsletter.

Thanks for reading and
all the best from India!

  • Servus ihr beiden Weltreisenden.
    Als passionierter Motorradfahrer und Tierfreund, und gar nicht weit weg von Rosenheim wohnend, habe ich Dein Buch in wenigen Tagen ausgelesen. Auch wir meine Gattin und ich waren schon in Arabien unterwegs. Altersbedingt nur mit einem Leihwagen. Aber Deine Berichte über die Freundlichkeit und Gastfreundschaft speziell in abgelegenen, einsamen Gegenden, kann ich nur bestätigen.
    Alles liebe und keine unlösbaren Probleme wünsche ich Euch


  • Hallo Ihr beiden, ich habe heute mit dem Hörbuch angefangen und bin bereits voll gefesselt. Habe jetzt erstmal gegoogelt, was es über Euch noch so zu erfahren gibt. Ich selbst fahre Motorrad und habe eine 16-jährige Katze (mittlerweile leider sehr krank). Es fasziniert mich total, wie eine Katze derart reisesicher sein kann. Ich bin gespannt auf Eure Abenteuer. Passt gut auf Euch auf und kommt irgendwann gesund zurück.

  • Hallo Martin, hallo Katze Mogli, vielen Dank das Ihr uns mitreisen läßt! Durch so viele Länder zu reisen muss schon ein großes Erlebnis sein. Ich habe Dein Buch mit viel Begeistetung gelesen und sollte es ein 2. geben, bin ich auch wieder dabei. Was mir sehr gut gefallen hat ist Deine Aussage, das die Menschen mit denen Du zusammengekommen bist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit waren und wohl auch noch sind. Schön, dass Du das so erleben kannst und auch Mogli. Passt gut auf Euch auf und überlege Deine nächsten Schritte immer sehr gut. Ich möchte nämlich dass Ihr irgendwann auch wieder in Rosenheim ankommt. Bin Mutter eines erwachsenen Sohnes und kenne die Sorgen einer Mutter. Alles Liebe und Gute Rita

  • Hey Ihr beiden,
    habe gerade Euer Buch verschlungen. Ich bin selbst begeisterte Motorradfahrerin und habe seit meinem 4. Lebensjahr durchgehend Tiere u.a. Katzen, wahrscheinlich auch deswegen habe ich sehr mitgefiebert. Aktuell haben mein Mann und ich einen blinden Kater und eine 19jährige Prinzessin, die sind leider nicht mehr so reisebereit, aber wir sind selbst unterwegs sobald wir sie gut versorgt wissen, allerdings vermissen wir sie dann schrecklich.
    Ich hoffe Euch geht es gut und Ihr habt nicht das Gefühl festzustecken sondern könnt die Zeit genießen!
    Viele Grüße, Julia

  • Hallo Martin und Mogli,
    Danke für dieses wundervolle Buch.
    Ich habe beim Lesen so mitgefiebert… und dann war es zu Ende.
    Wird es ein weiteres Buch geben?

    Herzliche Grüße aus Aachen
