SLOW TRAVEL WORLD TRIP


We, Zoe and Olivier, are on a world trip! We Leaf! Friday 30th of September we left for an indefinite time on our world trip. From Amsterdam we cycles 4.000 kilometers to the south of Europe. Two months later we reached the southern ends of the European mainland. We took a boat to the Canary Islands from where we hitchhiked on a sailing boat to South America, just like the first world explorers! From there expedition Patagonia started, all the way to the end of the world. Exciting right!? Follow our adventures on this website!

Weleaf is a blog with our personal travel stories and our best travel tips. We travel using our 'self provided power', which is by bicycle, walking, sailing or a canoe. By travelling slow we get submerged into the culture and get to know the land, the locals and the environment we pass by. During our trip distances are becoming distances again. We want to inspire our readers to travel self provided and meet the cultures. With our travel stories and portraits we want to inspire you to follow your dreams, and to pass this spark to other persons.

Are Americans really fat?

We always try to enter a country without expectations and prejudices. In Uruguay or Paraguay that is easy because we really have no idea what to expect
