A Country Of Extremes Part I : The Good

A Country Of Extremes Part I : The Good

Indonesia is not like what I thought it was. It has exceeded some of my expectations on both the positive and negative side. Being here for almost half a year gives me a better insight into the lifestyle of Indonesian people and how they do what they do… Comparing my western lifestyle with everyday life here keeps me thinking, every day. And that is exactly the problem… Indonesians are the most careless people I have met and it’s exactly that…

A sign of life…

A sign of life…

Hi guys! It’s been a while since our last post. We’ve been traveling for 3 weeks with my cousin in October. We explored a big part of Java and the island of Flores together. Wonderful Indonesia! Now that we are back home it’s time for “kerja, kerja, kerja” like the Indonesian president “Djokowi” would say. That means “work, work, work”. We have started to inventorize the store bit by bit. It’s still going to take a very long time but…

Why we spammed you with emails to avoid spam!

Why we spammed you with emails to avoid spam!

Lately, we’re getting a lot of spam on our website. Comments that are meaningless and coming from spam mail addresses about car rental, tricking us to buy stuff or other marketing related things. To avoid this I made some changes to our website that you probably already noticed 🙂 You will get a lot of emails from us in the next hours. Sorry about that! On the other hand, it gives you the chance to catch up on our posts…

Selamat datang di Indonesia!

Selamat datang di Indonesia!

After a bumpy ride, I made it to Indonesia around 3 weeks ago. I’m still integrating and struggling with the language but my bowel system seems to have adapted to the local cuisine. Fingers crossed… Some of our readers wondered where I ended up exactly. How is your life now? What changed and how is life different there?… Well, life is quite different here to say the least. The food, the culture, the people, the mindset, the habits. Many things for…

Road trip!

Road trip!

Dear visitors and followers, we have commenced the last part of our seven-month trip. Another great part of Europe is on our planning and we can’t wait to tell you all about it! We’re traveling by car for 5 weeks to reach the more remote natural places in this beautiful part of Europe. We’re focussing on the Alps region by going through the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France. When there is time left we will continue to Spain…

Family matters…

Family matters…

Ola!! Long time no hear and we have our reasons… In the end of May we explored Northern Portugal and Galicia together with Janick’s mom. Focusing on the natural parks and places inaccessible by public transport, we decided to rent a small car. This time we’re traveling more family style for 9 days. We started with a good hike in passadiços do Paiva, an 8.7 km wooden boardwalk along the bank of the Paiva river in Northern Portugal. Truly a…

Portugal!

Portugal!

The Portugal pictures are now online! Our favorite experience was obviously the Rota Vicentina, on which we wrote a dedicated post. That is bucket list material! Faro, Lagos and Sagres were surprisingly nice, but for us it was all about the surroundings, not the cities themselves. If you are ever in or near Lisbon, Sintra is definitely a must. It’s much nicer and so unique. We don’t really like Lisbon after seeing such a fairytale place like Sintra. Enjoy!
