We are Zoë and Olivier, full time adventurers with living adventurously as our life purpose. We traveled the world for six years, wrote a book and are now looking for our own basecamp in Scandinavia. There we organize leadership and adventure trips on human power.
LEAVING THE COMFORT ZONE
Here it is!! The English version of our book! Leaving the Comfort Zone. It has been hard work but we are so proud that we finally have an English version in our hands. We are so happy that we can share it with you.
Since January 2022, we have been on the next adventure, the search for a home in Scandinavia, a basecamp from which to go on an adventure. After five years of adventure and so much change, we are now going to look for a permanent home. We find that super exciting! It's a new step into the unknown.
Here are the latest stories about our search, and on the page of Basecamp-X you will find all the other stories.
We do not know where we will end up and what our future will look like. The journey by bicycle will once again give us the answer. We will take you through the encounters along the way, our thoughts, the choices we make, the setbacks and the happy moments.
THIS IS WHAT WE DO
// HUMAN POWERED ADVENTURES
// INSPIRATIONAL TALKS
// LEADERSHIP RETREATS
2016 - 2020
In September 2016, we set off on an unknown adventure in Amsterdam on €100 second-hand bikes. We spent four years traveling around the world on human power, covering more than 40,000 kilometers in six different modes of travel.
You can read everything about our world trip in our book which will be released in March, but also here on our website.
We had no plan, no final destination and no experience! We did have a clear goal: to discover the world in an active and adventurous way, learn languages, meet people and share a positive story.
