WORLD TRIP ON HUMAN POWER
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 cycled 4.000 kilometers to the South of Europe. Two months later we reached the southern ends of the European mainland. We hitchhiked on a sailing boat to Brazil, cycled to Patagonia and all the way up to North America. We hiked 1.000 kilometers on the Appalachian Trail and canoed the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. Our next plans are skiing 3.000 kilometer in Canada and roller skiing 4.000 kilometer in Europe. Another year of adventure. Follow our adventures on this website!
Weleaf is a blog with our personal travel stories and our best travel tips. We travel using human power, which is by bicycle, hiking, sailing, canoeing, skiing or roller skating. 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 on human power and discover the cultures. With our travel stories and tips we want to inspire you to follow your dreams, and to pass this spark to other persons.

THIS IS WHAT WE DO
We tell the stories of the most beautiful projects, people and nature that we encounter on our trip. We search for the positive elements in those stories to show the good news on planet earth. Using words, images and sounds, we try to make short and powerful reports which inspire people to take action in their life.
KILOMETERS ON THE BICYCLE
There is nothing more beautiful than traveling on human power. Slowly, between the local culture, blend in with nature and healthy in the open air. It is the ultimate way of travelling for us and the beauty is that there are so many different ways to do it! Do you also want to travel on human power?
