THIS IS OUR TRIP


Friday the 30 of September we left Amsterdam on our bicycles for a world trip! For a long time, all options were open and we had no single idea about when, how, how long and where we the trip would go to. This is the way we want to travel, the best things in life happen when you don't plan them. The idea to start our world trip from our house originated somewhere in June, and the bicycle would be the perfect way of transport to start. During our trip we will probably switch transport often, but the energy of our own body and nature will make up the bulk.

We will cross many countries on the road. Because we travel by bicycle, by foot or public transport, we will be approachable and it will be easy to meet new cultures. The tent is our new home, which we like to pitch in someones garden, and sometimes a warm shower or bed is also nice. We like to write stories about our adventures, the people we meet and the new cultures. Below you find the latest stories of our trip! Enjoy!

Crossing salar de coipaca by bicycle

Cycling in heaven

We ride on a bumpy dirt road as the sand becomes whiter and harder. A little later everything is white. In front of us lies an immense plain, as flat as the Netherlands...

Fietsen langs ijsmuur

Pura bici

'3,000 meters', Olivier shouts at Zoë, 'are you already feeling it?' "No, nothing!" Zoë laughs back. Olivier is gasping on his bike and feels the altitude...

Cycling in the Andes

The smile of the Andes

We dive into the Andes, although diving is not really the right word for what’s coming. Santa Cruz is located 400 meters above sea level
