My personal travels and stories

To Africa: Ouzoud - Tafraoute

Having just arrived in Ouzoud, we opted to have another day exploring the surroundings and reorganize the truck. The oil drum that was installed in our secret compartment as extra fuel tank, isn't really working out. The seal isn't diesel-resistant…

To Africa: Rabat - Ouzoud

Continuing my trip into North Africa, we took off from Ouezzane where we stayed at questionable "Hotel Rif". Carlo and Max went for breakfast somewhere else and got offered some roses by their  waiter on this romantic date. We used them…

To Africa: Madrid - Ouezzane

Continuing on from Madrid, our plan was to take the ferry to Morocco the next day. A Spanish trucker told us there was a good truckstop at mile marker 288. We'd started driving very late, so by midnight we were all really looking forward…

To Africa: Tubingen - Madrid

Back in September, when I came back from touring in Spain with Edelweiss, I met Lukas, a fellow tourguide in the hotel in Mieming, Austria. Lukas started together with me as a new tourguide this year, and though I hadn't been on tour with him,…

The Swedish Link - Part II

After our extreme first day of our week-long attempt to ride through Sweden on mostly unpaved, adventurous roads, we weren't even back in Jokkmokkk, the point where we got on our bikes. I don't know why we even vaguely expected to be…

The Swedish Link - Part I

My job of working with Edelweiss is pretty fun generally, but over the years I've come to really like riding my motorcycle in a bit more of an adventurous way, something that is not that common among Edelweiss' tour program. That's why I wanted…

Summer Travel Preparations

I think I might need to become a bit more consistent with updating. I tend to hold back on publishing something until it stands by itself as an interesting, recent story with plenty of pictures. I've still got plenty of ideas for things to post…

Goodbye Australia

After the two weeks at the Krishna Farm I felt like I needed a little bit of time to get accustomed to the real world before I'd fly back to Belgium, Europe. So I spent my last week visiting some islands and seeing a few more sights. I…

Pause in Brisbane

It's been quite a while since I posted something. It's been on my mind, but the truth is that not much has happened compared to the past months. At least nothing photographically interesting to compose much of an update from! I was at…

Australia Roadtrip - North Coast

I guess I've been postponing finding a job, as I mentioned in the last blogpost. Lots of reasons for that, some bad weather, meeting new people and wanting to see a few more things. The next day was predicted to be rainy, but turned out…
