Bio

Josef ‘Sepp’ Kaiser was born as the second of four boys on the 27th of December 1962 on a small farm in the province of Lower Austria. After public school and an apprenticeship as a carpenter, he first started to travel at the age of nineteen. Leaving his home at the foothills of the Alps on a moped, Sepp first headed for Canada, returning nine months later on the occasion of the wedding of his oldest brother. During his second voyage Sepp Kaiser was hitch-hiking criss-cross all overEurope with his Canadian girlfriend for fifteen months. On February 14th, 1985 the "Vagabond", as Sepp likes to call himself, took to the road once more, again on his own. This time his escapade turned into a mammoth trip, which kept him on the move for more than a decade. During this fantastic odyssey Sepp Kaiser was to become the first person in history to visit all the 192 countries of the world in one single journey, thus entering the GUINNESS BOOK of RECORDS. Moreover, he did it all in a romantic, sometimes quite adventurous way, with back-pack and guitar and hitch-hiking most of the time, financing his travels with all kinds of jobs: Kiwi-picker in New Zealand, waiter in Japan, busker in many exotic towns, gardener & butler in England, supervisor for the Swiss Disaster Relief in Bangladesh, tourist guide in Argentina and to the Antarctica, Singing-Santa-Claus in Singapore, deckhand on sailing-yachts around the Caribbean and the South Seas, carpenter in Canada, entertainer in many different pubs and hotels, ... Naturally, the jovial wanderer also encountered most painful setbacks. Several times he got robbed, he also was stabbed, caught by guerrillas, troubled by very bad illnesses and had to endure many tough fights for visas. By far though, the wonderful experiences outweighed the hardships. For instance: Climbing famous mountains (playing his guitar and yodelling from the top of the highest peak in the Andes at 6.959m), paddling alone in a dugout through the rainforests of New Guinea, sailing the Seven Seas (on yachts, cargo-ships, fishing boats, traders or submarines), crossing all the better known deserts, reaching very remote islands and living in the most modern cities, as well as among very isolated tribes and jungle nomads - from North Cape to South Africa, from Bhutan to Polynesia, from Mongolia to Fireland and beyond ...
