Sharing a trip with a friend or your significant other can be wonderful. But you might not get to to do or see things you want to. Because you and your friend won’t have the same ideas and wishes for your trip. You will have to make compromises to make your trip work and might even have to give up on a dream of yours.Read More
A lot of my friends and also a few readers asked me how I was able to travel while I was still in school or doing my apprenticeship. It’s easier than you might think and you don’t have to choose between one or the other if you want to make it work.Read More
A road trip across the western United States in an RV is still my favorite trip of all-time. But the RV parks, campgrounds and resorts we stayed at were not all equally good. Below I listed my top 5 favorite places we stayed at with our RV during our trip. You shouldn’t take the order too serious because it doesn’t matter much in what place a spot is.Read More
Did one of your friends ever come back from the trip of a lifetime and you asked them how it was? Well, how was it? Good? Great? Awesome? They can answer this question with one word and it doesn’t say much at all.Read More
Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands is one of the most popular destinations in Europe and has lots to offer for all kind of travellers.

Have you ever wanted to travel somewhere but it just wasn’t the right time? Maybe no one wanted to join you on your trip. Maybe you were too busy at work. Your life was full of obligations that kept you from traveling. But here’s a secret: It will not get better the longer you wait.Read More
Ok, it is probably not THE hottest place on earth. You know, clickbait and all. But it does get rather warm in Death Valley, the hottest place in North America at least. Despite it being so hot, you can actually drive through there, even with a 7.5 ton RV.Read More
We all have dreams. Things we want to do in our lifetime. Things we want to see. Places we want to go. For me, it is important to write these dreams down so I can keep them in focus. I like my Bucket List to be a long-term to do list and not a list of things I will never do.Read More
I'm not a big fan of winter. I don't like the cold and I don't love the snow. But I do love winter sports. Weird, right? This year I decided to make my comeback on the skis. I've been snowboarding for the past couple of years and wanted to give skiing another try.Read More
Last week, Gabriela from Gabriela Here and There tweeted that she has been to 77 countries. 77 is quite an impressive number and it made me think about how many countries I have been to. And if I haven’t forgotten anything it is 18. This inspired me to compile this list of all the countries I have visited.Read More
Figuring out what to take with you on a trip can be the most demanding part of planning a trip. It used to be this way for me for a long time. But as I have mentioned countless times before, you are probably packing way too much. If you pack less you can even fly with carry-on baggage only which will save you money on your flight and make travel less of a hassle in general.Read More
Whenever I hear people talking to me about their dreams and travel plans I ask them what is holding them back from making these dreams the reality. Almost every time to answer to this question is the same. Money. But you don’t need to be rich to travel.Read More
When we set out on our road trip in the United States, one of places I wanted to go to the most was Six Flags. I love roller coasters. So, it’s not a surprise that I wanted to visit the world’s biggest roller coaster park when we are in the area. And we did.Read More
It feels like every time I write about a travel app, a new one comes out right after I hit that publish button. This app isn’t new per se, but it changed a lot recently and it has become one of my favorites for finding the best and cheapest flights. I already have a post about finding good deals on flights in which I call Google Flights my favorite. Now, add Hopper to that list.Read More
Las Vegas is one of the cities that is on almost everyone’s list when it comes to a western United States road trip. And if you have never been there it’s worth a visit even if it’s just to find out what all the fuzz is about. And while traveling with an RV is one of the best ways to see the United States, you might think that it is less ideal in Las Vegas.Read More
Last week, I wrote about how much I like to use packing cubes to organise the stuff in my bag and make packing a lot easier and more efficient. In addition to those packing organisers you also need a great bag to pack. And my favorite backpack (ever) is the Topo Designs Klettersack.Read More
Who loves packing?
Ok, no one does. But it doesn't have to be that bad. I've never been a great packer. I was always the person who just threw everything into a bag and hoped everything would fit. Without a system or a thought behind how I was packing. Maybe you are the same way. Or not. Either way, you should really use packing organizers.
The internet is full of advice about everything and travel is no exception. Some of it is better than others so I decided to make a list of all of my favorite tips I’ve been given either in person on the road or on the internet.Read More

It was my first backpacking trip, my first trip to South East Asia and a lot of other firsts. It was very scary at first but thanks to the warm welcome of all the other travellers that vanished soon. I learned a lot of new things during those two weeks. First of all that two weeks is way too short. It's more like a sneak peek than an actual trip.Read More
