travels around the world over land and over seas, in a variety of ways and with a variety of vehicles, but always hitchhiking. We use only a map and a compass to generate improbable events and adventures. The period of the travelings is unlimited and the road is always winding in unfamiliar and unplanned places. Our homes are the mountains, deserts, jungles and seas, medieval cities, beaches, rocks and steppes. Every day the adventure of life takes us to new places be it in our tent or under someone’s welcoming roof.
The Great African Journey Part II
Magic Kervan is on its way! The Kervan is currently in: Botswana (August 2021).
On February 26, 2021, after an uncontrollable urge for new adventures and despite restrictions and uncertainties due to the pandemic, Magic Kervan headed back to the calling continent of Africa. So far we have explored Tanzania (3 months), Zambia (3 weeks), Namibia (40 days), Botswana (at the moment)
African Journey Part I “From the Promised Land to the Roots of Humankind”
On November 21, 2019, the first trip to the long-dreamed continent of Africa started. The journey started from Israel and Palestine, which we reached by plane due to the critical situation in Syria and from where we continued to hitchhike and walk with a tent. We crossed Jordan and Egypt and crossed the geographical border between Asia and Africa – the Suez Canal.
The countries we have visited in the Middle East and East Africa were: Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia. The third member of the Magic Kervan, George, also known as Vietnama Jones, joined us (Maggie and Tzvetin) on this journey.
The Great Asian Journey
It started in April 2015 and lasted without interruption for three years, eight months and five days. We traveled over 100,000 km overland and overseas along the Silk Road to the Far East, the Spice Route through Southeast Asia to the Indonesian archipelago, visited Papua New Guinea and the island nations of Melanesia, and reached the islands of Fiji. After nearly 6 months of sailing with the yacht Alabama, we crossed the Pacific Ocean, passing through Vanuatu, Micronesia and Japan and finally we reached South Korea. After a short stay in Taiwan and Vietnam, we set off on one of the theoretical routes of the proto-Bulgarians from the far eastern lands of China and Mongolia through the Central Asian countries Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and the Caucasus countries Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia to our native Bulgaria.
Total visited countries on this trip: 30

Principles of the Magic Caravan
Life is the most miraculous and precious gift to humans.
Infinitely beautiful and marvelous, we have to live it with eyes wide open and filled with joy by the sheer fact that we are alive.
Life should not be perceived as:
An annoying struggle to meet the existential, physiological needs of humans – food, clothing, shelter, etc.
A struggle to try to satisfy the constantly emerging new and new desires.
A string of circumstances predetermined by fate which cannot be changed in any way.
Mechanical and unconscious series of habits, duties and behaviors determined by the that enslave us.
Life is a magic. We believe that every human being is of divine nature, and through their thoughts, will, awareness and internal power, people can completely control the fate and the reality around them.
Traveling is one of the best ways to experience the vast diversity of the world, to be flooded and filled with its beauty and to meet the various manifestations of the beauty of the human nature – be it ethnic, cultural or religious. Traveling is like a never-ending fountain overflowing with colorful paintings, emotions and unexpected events.
For the people. This journey is posible not only because of us, but because of something in which the modern world is gradually losing faith – Human goodness. Countless people of different faiths and cultures, through all the countries and places we pass through, help us in every possible ways and make this journey possible. No matter their appearance, clothing, customs or lifestyle, there is something that all human beings have in common – their heart!
Without all those people who helped us along the way, not only would we not be able to travel, but it might not even make sense to live on earth.
Thank you very much!
