Tales From a Rookie Hitchhiker

The first time I hitchhiked, I was picked up by the Ukranian military. I had just finished my time working at a kids’ camp in the Carpathian Mountains where I was teaching English. The camp administrator bought me a train ticket to the border to a city called Chop, and gave me exact directions on […]

Story about Rome, Italy

Chance meeting at Rome’s train station.

My favourite travel story has to be from my parents. Back in the 70’s backpackers wore giant backpacks, I’m talking about the ones with the exterior metal frames on them. The internet didn’t exist, guidebooks were in thier infancy, Couchsurfing, travel hacking were decades away and travel bloggers only existed in notebooks. My mother, a […]

Story about Jiansu Province, China

When China killed the chivalry

On my first year working in China, I lived in Alcatraz. Not the prison Alcatraz, it was just a nickname I gave our company dormitory but it was pretty much the same. On my first attempt to escape, I had to wait more than three hours and multiple failed efforts to get to ride the […]

Story about Nevada, United States of America

Piss and Stardust

Piss and stardust A Lesson in Spontaneity It should go without saying that a lot can happen in seven days. This is ever so dangerously compounded when Las Vegas is involved. Few people escape Sin City unscathed, for there the siren song sings ad nauseam, perpetually luring the uninitiated down the glitzy road to perdition. […]

Story about Paris, France

Paris Changed My Life.

She was the perfect girl for me. At least I thought she was. We had great times together. She was funny, intelligent, beautiful, everything I hoped for in a partner. I did everything to make her happy. Being with her was more than a relationship, it was an adventure. Just like every adventure, I came […]

Story about Dead sea, Jordan

An unexpected lift

Me and my friend were travelling around Jordan. On our last day we decided to visit and experience the dead sea. We always like to do things as low budget as possible so that’s how we started our journey. We took the public transport to get from Amman (the capital) to the dead sea. We […]

That escalated quickly

In the summer of 2010, a good friend of mine convinced me to join her in entering The Tall Ships Races 2010, a large scale sailing competition spanning multiple days in which sailing ships from all sizes participate. That year, the first round was a race between the cities of Antwerp in Belgium and Aalborg […]

Story about Stellenbosch, South Africa

What was supposed to be an easy hike became a script for a movie

I’m a Belgian physics student who spent 5 months on exchange in Stellenbosch, South-Africa. Except for great wine, good food and wonderful people the Western Cape also has a stunning natural setting to offer. One day a South-African mate of mine (Matthew) asked me to join him, 5 dutch girls and one other Belgian friend […]

Story about Arizona, United States of America

Bumpy ride to Antilope Canyon

It was in the summer of 2011 during a roadtrip in Arizona that we decided to visite Upper Antilope Canyon. You must know, on the way over there, there are many companies offering guided tours into the canyon but we wanted to book with a local, family-run organisation. And so we did and we agreed […]
