RV day 6: Clueless driving into the unknown
I wasn't ready, not the slightest bit. I got in the RV and all I knew was that I was going to drive north. In a few days, I was going to meet @anarcist69. A nice spot to park the RV for the night was my goal. One with a good view and electrici

I wake up pretty nervous. This is the day that I'll be picking up my motorhome and I'll be driving that thing around the east coast of Australia for almost a month! I have never been in a motorhome, let alone driven one! I have had many small panic moments the
I was so lucky having hardly any people around
Exhausted with a capital E. That was me. The train dropped me and my suitcase off at Sydney Central Station and Uber wasn't on my side this time. Apparently, there are 2 levels of the road and the driver just couldn't find me. At the same time, on t
Yesterday was the closing of already the 7th edition of the The Amsterdam Light Festival. Personally, this festival is a bit of a highlight of winters in Amsterdam as the light-art pieces are placed throughout the Amsterdam city centre from the end of November until close to
Ready to go
Grabs pen and paper... "How does this work again?". I'll just start typing and then the words will follow....right? #breakingthewritersblock. Here we go!
I was excited about this one. And as you may know, I am a hard-to-excite human being! It was fucking expensive, but I just had to
In case you wondered what this Nomad Cruise is all about. It's hard to explain. To me, after a few cruises, it has mostly become about the people. Seeing my friends again, getting inspired by new stories and travelling to (for me) unfamiliar places with a huge group is what makes it somethin
Did I want to see some proper whales? No, that wasn't the case. It was time for the 7th Nomad cruise to go on its transatlantic trip and I needed to be on that!
The Nomadcruise is just a brilliant thing! It is a multiple day conference on a cruise ship. This time there are almost 500 digita
So Perth. Lovely lovely Perth...I booked plenty of days here. But in the end, I didn't see much of it. I'd love to blame the weather, my jetlag or just a few random people. That is a bit unfair. It was basically a result of me not taking the time to do some proper research and being too lazy to

A few days ago I shared how my trip to Australia didn't start as planned due to a bit of a storm hitting Western Australia just when I was visiting it.
Let me take you to my last morning in Kalbarri. I checked out of my resort hotel (it did have a pool, but surprise surprise...
In the days after I quit my job, I tried figuring out what to do. Yes, I would go to Australia. I had my mind set on this train trip across the country. There is one from east to west (and vv) and one from north to south (and vv). I went through the last available tickets for the train and found

I think that I qualify as "a spontaneous traveller". This means that when I get a travel urge and I have the time and the money to do it, I book it straight away. Travelling solo gives me that freedom. No need to plan with my friends, I just do what I like! And af
It was day 52 of my trip around Australia and to be honest, I was knackered! I hardly left my hotel!! The evening before, I had a mini meet with @mattclarke and @o07. And yes, that was in the hotel bar so no need for me to leave the hotel!! (woohoo, thanks guys!)
But yeah, I was about to leave Aust
