My personal travels and stories

Cruising in Tenerife - Part 1

Jolien and me have been traveling exclusively by van up until now, so we thought for our spring trip, we'd change things up a bit. Jolien can ride a little 125cc motorcycle legally without a proper motorcycle license, so we decided to head to…

Mysteries of the Ruhr and Beyond

I had two of my friends, Wouter and Pieter join me on a little roadtrip to Germany. Our aim was to visit some strange, out-of-the-ordinary places, of which there seemed to be a lot in the Ruhr area and beyond, according to Atlas Obscura. Still…

Winter Van Trip 2

Just like last year, we decided to head out in the van at the end of the year for a little "Winter Trip". Last year we had huge plans to see Germany and France, but we only really did Germany and Luxemburg, so now was our chance to ctach up…

Kiev, Ukraine

Recently I had the opportunity to stay a few days longer in Kiev, Ukraine. I'd never been there before and ex-Soviet countries always appeal to me, so I opted to stay 4 days longer after my first two days of work were done. Kiev is…

Norway & Sweden By Van - Part 2

Last time I blogged, we were as far north as we'd be able to make in Norway on this trip. Even though Geiranger was very touristic and busy it was a worthwhile visit. We stayed at a camping for one night, as finding free showers in Geiranger…

Norway by Van - Part 1

Traveling by van, wildcamping almost all the time, and not having a set schedule or bookings is really a very different experience. It's the first time I've managed to combine an Edelweiss tour with some personal travel, and the fact that Jolien…

The Viking Experience 2017

I'm a world away from the sunny mountains of Spain, where I was last riding. The skies are full of grey clouds, slowly moving along, the landscape doesn't contain a single tree, just rocks, moss and grass with patches of snow in between.…

Con la Furgo en el Camino - Portugal

Last time we'd pretty much reached the end of Asturias, where the province of Galicia starts. Our first stop there was the very famous (as in: signs are up kilometers in advance) beach of The Cathedrals, or "Praia Das Catedrais" The name…

Con la Furgo en el Camino - Asturias

As we left the Basque Country, we had high hopes for what was coming up. There's not much of a plan but we we were very excited about the province of Asturias after reading a really good blog about it. First we'd be going through the province…

Con la Furgo en el Camino - Euskadi

Part of why I didn't post much since the tour in Australia, is because I have been so busy preparing for this trip in my van with Jolien: our vague plan is to drive to Spain and slowly head to Santiago, from where she flies back due to work…
