BAD OMEN It’s a warm spring evening and we’re enjoying cold drinks with our friends Holger and Moni. In two days we’re making our way to Poland. We will leave a day earlier because we want to make a stop near Berlin. Around 10:30PM a phone call put us all into action. We fill up […]
We finally installed the pass-through, connecting the cab with the camper unit. Why and how did we install one in our expedition truck…
“1940 – I’m 17 years when the war begins…” May 4th, 2017 – I have a few white pages with text in my hand. The pages contain Daan’s story of World War II, at least the short summary of it. He was not a boy, not yet a man when the war broke out. “November […]
“How do you know which road to take?” “Where do you find the off-the-beaten-path?” “How do you plan your route?” … People have asked us these questions more than once. And to be honest we were bad in answering them. Strange isn’t it? These questions seem to be fairly simple, right. What is the problem […]
Fresh of the press, the book many of you have been waiting for: Motorhome self-build and optimisation by Ulrich Dolde. […]
In the previous article we wrote about how we came to the decision to install a coolant/water heating system in our expedition truck and how stupid we were to wait with the installation till the end of the build. In this follow-up article you can find more information/images about how we exactly tackled the installation. […]
2.5 years ago I met Elmer while he was working. Since then I created the habit of writing him a tiny love letter on a paper napkin when I’m, once again, one of his passengers. Tomorrow (4th of february) Elmer has to work on his Birthday, but I will not be on the plane sneaking […]
Last summer we had the amazing opportunity to test out C.A.R.E. Diesel® with our expedition camper truck. Read in our latest about what this is and about our experience.
What to do after celebrating Christmas and the New Year with family? Return to the road! Where did we travel to? We first spend a few days wild camping nearby Baraque Michel in the Belgian Ardennes. Baraque Michel is third highest point of Belgium (674m / 2,211 ft). The Baraque itself is an inn and […]
It was -6°C last night. But inside our overland camper it was a comfortable 22°C instead. We’re in the snow-covered Belgian Ardennes. We finally installed our heating system, so the winter season no longer stops us from wild camping. The heating was one of the biggest struggles we faced in the build of our […]
Notwithstanding the very sad events that just took place in Berlin, we would like to remember the positive spirit of the German Christmas Markets and wish you happy holidays! This month we visited two Christmas Markets (called “Weihnachtsmarkt”) in Germany: One in Frankfurt and one medieval one at the Castle in Ronneburg. Family and two […]
As promised we made a short video of our number 1 bush camp. It’s a riverbed, located in Italy, near the Slovenian border. A place where you don’t see a soul, just the wild animals living around you. At home in nature It was early October when we spend a week here. Although the nights were […]

This summer we were interviewed by journalist Suzanne Antonis. The interview was published in October 2016 in the Belgian magazine Onderox. You can read the original dutch article here: “Gelukzoekers – Wonen op wielen” Happiness seekers – Living on Wheels (English translation, including links to related posts) Kempen/Europe – A house on four wheels, that does […]
No TV, no Netflix! So how do we keep ourselves entertained around our overland truck, aside from the occasional movie or reading a book? Games! The games we took along can be played with 2 or more. They are easy to explain to someone who never played it before and do not require you to speak the […]
Overland travel through Romania, Serbia and Slovenia with Terratrotter.
When traveling with a larger vehicle / tiny home, a vacuum cleaner on board comes in really handy. Even when we still traveled with our Jeep Wrangler, we often wished we had this with us, just to get rid of all the dust and sand that got into the car. And now that we finally have one, it […]
