Myanmar, a mental vacation

It’s unbelievable. Here I am, sitting at my dad’s dining table. I never expected to be writing this story from home. But it is the way it is. Myanmar seems very far away now, but here we go.Our journey through Myanmar started on the 8th of January, early ...

Nepal, hidden treasures

Nepal, wow! And we haven't even seen the best parts yet I think. As Klaas hit the asphalt just before we entered Nepal we couldn't do a trekking, which was high on our wish list. And also our week of reflection in a nice and quiet place was not meant to b ...

No flat tires! Yet.

We haven't had one flat tire yet. But we did have some work to do along the way. Luckily every time something unplanned happened, the problem was solved within a few hours. In Turkmenistan the frame of my motorbike was broken, on both sides. Within half ...

Turkey and a bit of Greece. Twice.

It’s about time we tell you a little more about the progress of our journey. We are in Turkey, since the second of June. In Greece we didn’t do anything special. We took some nice winding roads through the mountains and enjoyed the Greek food. And we boug ...
