Welcome to my blog

A most likely outdated hodgepodge.

This website can be seen as a most likely outdated hodgepodge of a small portion of things that I experienced while traveling. The stories on this website are in no particular order, and the articles I write don’t follow a particular pattern. I wouldn’t consider these stories interesting, informative, or even special to read, myself. I created this collection – which can be more accurately characterized as an unfinished diary that omits the most personal details – at the request of many, for the purpose of anyone who might be interested.

My travel style is varied.

I have camped out in the wild in numerous places, hitchhiked over ten thousand kilometres through all sorts of locations and climates, and stayed in about a hundred different homes.

But besides being, in essence, a lover of going off the beaten path, I adore doing the opposite as well: partying in big cities until the early morning with whoever is eager to join, enjoying the luxury of a meal in a restaurant, visiting a country’s often-crowded “mainstream sights”, and so on.

My motivation

Although it might be cliché, I can express my motivation behind traveling this way: I travel to meet new people from all kinds of backgrounds, to hear about their life and habits, to push my own boundaries, to take risks, to get a better view of this world, to contradict my own embedded thoughts, to explore while feeling a sense of adventure, to question everything related to life and beyond, to find happiness, and hundreds of other reasons.

A friendly reminder.

Please keep in mind that I’m neither a professional writer, nor a photographer. The photos on this website are “quick photos” that I took with my phone, their only purpose being to preserve my own memories and experiences. I travel for my own benefit, and I never have any commercial intentions whatsoever.

Besides that, my native language is Dutch, and I wouldn’t be surprised if many of my articles contain a lot of grammatical and spelling errors.
