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.

Photography, it wasn’t something either of us were particularly interested in before. Of course we appreciated a beautiful picture. But we, we only took the occasional photograph and maybe one or two selfies throughout the year. And what is Instagram? We only discovered that a month ago. Yeah, the world of photography was uncharted terrain for […]
How did we experience traveling Romania in a large size overland vehicle? What were the pro’s and cons? Romanian towns, cities, scenic routes & offroad.
Why do people travel? In this article we explore the purpose of traveling. Moving from immediate pleasures to meaningful experiences.
“What do you not compromise on?” the journalist asked.
Picking up on the underlying assumption of the question, my immediate internal reaction was…
A tent, a sleeping bag and an a “crazy” aunt ;-). All the ingredients for a fun week in the Belgian Ardennes. This past week I -Nicole- was in the Belgian Ardennes with family. It was the first time camping for my nephew (11) and niece (8). We had to make it a success! “Wait one […]
It’s Sunday 11AM. We fill up 4 bottles with a mix of water and juice. It ‘s already 28°C and the sun is shinning bright. Once our skin is well protected we jump on our bikes. Why these mountain bikes? The last 2 years – except from a regular walk – we have been neglecting […]
One of the challenges overland travelers face is how to wash your clothes. Before we left for our big adventure we identified 6 primary options, each with it benefits and drawbacks: Laundromat or other laundry services Laundy machine at a caravan/rv park Shower or sink (on board or at a camp site) Wide neck drum Hand or foot […]
We’re now 2 weeks in Romania and we stay here for a while longer. Time to set up camp. Note: We hung the tarp on the side, since that’s where we received a wifi-connection 🙂 Failed plan In a previous post we explained that we decided upon Romania as our first destination because that gave us the chance […]
Lien Lammar, a Belgian journalist we worked with in the past, asked us if we were willing to work with her once more on a project. This time it was about Tiny Houses. Since we had such a positive experience last time working with her, we agreed. The interview together with the picture, taken by Ann […]
We don’t think any of you would have guessed we would start our adventure by driving to Romania. Nor would we have guessed this a few months ago. We have already been to Black Sea-area , so why would we return when there is still so much more to explore in Europe?

So what happened last Friday? Why did we skip a week with a new post? Getting ready for a 3 week trip It was such a hectic week. We both had a lot of work to do and the truck also had to be made ready for a 3 week trip to Belgium-Netherlands-Germany: Clothes, food […]
Overland travel and creating the freedom to play, to make people’s eyes sparkle, to be curious about new or unusual things, to simply enjoy the moment without any other purpose
It’s almost 8:30 PM when the meeting with my accountant is finally over. But the day is not over yet, I still have a 4-hour drive ahead of me.
