Originally from Jakarta, Nelwin Aldriansyah has been an inveterate Tintin enthusiast since his earliest childhood. So much so that he set off to conquer the globe, in search of the emblematic areas appearing in the comics. Once there, he takes a selfie trying to keep the angle of view of the boards. He then produces a comparative montage that he shares on his networks.

Some monuments included in Tintin do exist in reality, such as the city of Petra in Jordan or the Indian tower Qutub Mina. “When I was there, I remember having the impression of having seen this tower in the comic strip. Back in Jakarta, I reopened Tintin in Tibet and found that the monument appeared well in it”, he tells the Kompas site.

The Adventures of Tintin… in real life

Years later, he visits Europe with his family in 2014. This is where he finds that many places are represented in the albums. “Not only famous buildings like the Eiffel Tower or Saint-Basile Cathedral, but also many ordinary houses, train stations or small statues on the side of the road that Hergé drew exactly as they were”he points out.

Determined to follow in the reporter’s footsteps, the fan has seen the country since. Nepal, Russia, Serbia, Egypt, Palestine, Morocco, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Iceland, Peru, Mexico, United States, United Kingdom, Jordan, Indonesia… The globetrotter has made many trips to carry out his unusual quest . Here are some photos of his journey that you can also find on his Instagram account.
