Norway: part 2

Due to some technical difficulties this post took a bit longer to write than I hoped, but without further ado: here is part two of our road trip through Norway. After a bit of a slow start we settled in to our vanlife routine pretty easily. Every night we would look at where we would... Continue Reading →

Tale from the trail (10): short stay?!

This is one is not so much a story as it is a funny anecdote. While in Thailand on our trip of a lifetime we cycled from Bangkok to Krabi. Being in a country with such a different culture and language was challenging and has caused a fair deal of misunderstandings. My favorite one is the one... Continue Reading →

Trekking like a girl: hygiene on trail

I've been seeing a lot of questions regarding hygiene and more specifically female hygiene on trail. I didn't plan on writing this post, but seeing this is something a lot of women struggle with, I thought I'd share my personal approach. Whether you are planning a thru-hike that will take months, a bikepacking trip of... Continue Reading →

Being nominated for one of these awards might not seem like a big deal, but it really gives me a boost. It feels great to know that there... Continue Reading →

Taking some essentials with you will keep you comfortable and safe while enjoying the outdoors. The reason why I write this post... Continue Reading →

For the love of Nature

Nothings fills my heart with despair quite as much as hiking in the middle of nowhere and coming across litter. I cannot imagine hiking for a couple of hours in beautiful scenery and then just throwing my empty can on the ground. I believe in thinking big, but acting locally. I'm probably not the most...

Norway: getting started

As I explained in 'Norway, here we come!' we are traveling in Norway for about a month. After a bit of a slow start we are finally getting the hang of traveling by car again and we are falling head over heels for this beautiful country. It took us a couple of days to make... Continue Reading →
