A Dutch Traveller

Stories involving me and all that stands on the path I travel on

I could see it now, the border to Lithuania. My two-wheeled friend had almost made it, it had come down to four kilometers. Instead, I was drumming the dashboard, as we, the Polish guy and I, raced over to the first Baltic country. This man…

*Good news!! You can now stalk me wherever I go! 😀 My father made a map, which is updated almost daily and shows cities/villages I have been to. Link will be down below! My blog is a few weeks behind, sorry for that.* This time…

Kicked awake by Stanislaw – with my permission – who was heading to work, I slowly began packing my stuff. A night of little sleep did not help a lot, but had to get busy cycling. Once our simplistic bikes had some air pumped into…

Making our way to Lodz (line though L, sorry), my counter sprung to 0 again. After taking the picture, a ritual with ever 500km and now being the fourth time, I realized that it doesn’t reset itself. Other digits, ones I never paid attention too,…

The 2k, will it ever end?

Stomaches full, tents cleared, bags and bikes packed, goodbyes were said and we managed to resist kidnapping their little puppy; we were ready for departure. However, not before the man had shoved our hands full with cans of warthog meat. He had caught and canned…

Polish Hospitality

Time had once again come to get back on the road and brave all the crazy drivers, who have probably gotten their license together with a cereal box. These are the kind of people that think roadsigns are decorations and that roadkill is needed to…

On our first few days in the Czech Republic, we got to know the country in various ways. Cycling over the border, we were welcomed by old, some abandoned, houses, sketchy people, meth seeking junkies, signs forbidding prostitution and roads filled with potholes and dozens…

Eastern was on the agenda and the travelling duo was excited to do something special, yet, we were told that there was nothing in a 40km radium. It was already late in the afternoon and my bad knee, which until the mountains I never had…

It was on the 8th day, 19th March, that we reached our milestone of 500 kilometres, as we were on our way into town to enjoy a beer after a long week of cycling. Luck was on our side that day, which already prove so…

Our first week There we went, off to see the world, as Maarten’s, my companion, family waved us goodbye. I had spent the night there, so that we could depart early in the morning. Nonetheless, it had been a busy morning on the 12th of…

It has been mentioned a few times before, the cycling trip, but what is it exactly all about? The plan started a few months ago, when I bumped into an old highschool friend, Maarten. Apparently he too, was focusing on travelling, not yet wanting to…

Beginning the day The morning started off with my alarm clock waking me up. I forced myself out of bed and jumped into the shower. Time really had flown by for me, it had already been two weeks that I was gone, yet it felt…
