Where do I feel at home:
On the road, but if you mean a place I'd might see myself settle down one day: south Brazil or central Argentina.

 

Languages:
Dutch, English, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese

 

Most loved travel memory:
Hitting the road on May 31, 2003. The feeling of being free, of setting out for a life free of suburban trials and regulations, living a life that I really really wanted. As we left the Netherlands I was truly elated, exited, happy, and felt I could conquer the world.

 

Traveling means to me:

First of all it's about being free, about living a life outside boxes. Second it's about exploring other countries, new cultures and meeting people.

When I think of the next destination of our journey, I feel…
Excited. We're about to round off our 9-year South America exploration and I am ready for a new continent. Which one this will be depends on where a ship can take our vehicle.

 

Essentials:

  • good health
  • laptop for writing
