My personal travels and stories

Tough Times in Harvest

I just got fired from the job. It's no surprise and no disappointment. To the contrary, I saw it coming for a while and I'm glad to get out of here and move onto something fun. Let me go over what happened the past weeks though. Me and the farmer…

Harvest Bootcamp

I'm in a 50-ton truck, thundering down a long dirt road between the fields. Darkness is approaching and so is the thunderstorm that has been looming over the horizon for the past hour. Two kangaroos hop along my truck. I hope they don't…

Visiting Oz

I've just been through a whirlwind one and a half weeks. I'm in Australia, on a small farm near Murgon in Queensland. Ever since It became clear I'd be taking my life in a new direction, I've been planning a lot of different things, but by far…

Day 8 - 9 Poland Part 2

As I was only halfway through Poland, there was still a lot of riding left to do, here's what happened the past few days. After our night in Skowrony, the kids helped us out with packing the bikes by bringing our gear out in a random sequence…

Day 5-7 - Poland

After our stay in an AirBnB in Birstonas, near Kaunas in Lithuania, we set off for Poland.                                                                                                       We…
