09.Nov.2016 | Saying goodbye to Africa

Saying goodbye to our cycling life at the most wonderful beaches we’ve ever seen! It’s time to give our white legs some sun. So far they were always protected from the sun and fully covered to respect the Muslim culture. Ha ha and holiday is not easy  :-). We were a bit jealous to see all the people lying for endless hours in the sun, just doing nothing. The best we could do was 1 hour on the stretcher reading a book. Proud! And still we loved it. Waking up and start the day with a dive in the sea, walking for hours along the beach, eating great seafood and close the evening with...

25.Sep.2016 | Re-united

Re-united :-) after 90 days solo for both of us !

It was such a great and exciting moment to meet at Kilimanjaro airport. Both a bit nerves and so happy! We couldn’t stop talking, kissing, chatting, laughing and enjoy each and every moment together. But the biggest celebration was the present we gave ourselves with climbing Mount Meru. It was a long, cold and tiring walk all the way up to 4566 meter, but we made it :-). The sunrise from the top of Mount Meru with the view over the Kilimanjaro was amazing.

We’re now heading to Tanga, Pemba and Zanzibar by...

I made it :-) ! Touch down Arusha xx

I feel so happy, great, strong, tired, emotional and excited that I reached my goal. Wauw and so grateful that I arrived safe, healthy and full of joy and happiness. Especially as I really had to pinch myself the last stretch many times as I couldn’t believe that I was really doing this. It was the hardest part of my trip ever.

Off road to Lake Natron

On a sunny morning, fully loaded with food and water, I left my comfortable room in Mto wa Mbu. The idea of free camping in the desolated area and seeing the flamingo’s made me going...

21.Aug.2016 | Nee, niet weg klikken! Even lezen en dan lachen

I’m sorry for the English-speaking followers but sometimes it's much more fun to write in your own language. My English is not sophisticated enough and I want to have some fun with the Dutchies. So ‘lekkere kaaskopjes’ are you ready for some fun? En bij het zien van de aankomende vele woorden die het beeld gaan vullen, wel gewoon ff doorlezen hé. 

Zie de wind waait door de bomen

Nu zijn de verwachtingen natuurlijk hoog gespannen maar zo leuk is het begin niet. Toch even volhouden want het komt vanzelf. Sinds mijn binnenkomst in Tanzania ging de weg pal oost. Het...

Border crossing

It’s fascinating, even after so many border crossings, how everything changes as soon as you cross the line. Nature, food, people and language. Everything is different. But most interesting is the feeling you get when you're crossing the border. It's underneath you're skin. It’s there, just like that. It's personal and sometimes you don't understand why people love one country while others hate it. And that's the beauty of that special feeling (call it you're inner voice, your connection, intuition). If the feeling is less nice the head tries to fool you a bit....
