To the End of the World – Land of Fire (“Tierra del Fuego”) !
Three weeks driving day and night on a dusty road in Patagonia with limited access to a shower and having as home a crowded van was probably not enough!Addicted to this lifestyle and to Wicked Campers with Fabio and Yan we decide to give it another round and go even more South, up to where the road can bring us! And I mean it literally! Our new house is a three seater van with a big wolf painted on one side. I must admit it’s not the epic Mystery Machine, but the Wold has its charm and grit!

The line is elegant and aggressive with the deck entirely done teak, a fine wood used in naval ship boats. I

Indeed within the experiences of this year there is the desire to do a volunteering job for a period. The choice of MSF was driven mostly by destiny and
Here we are in the end… Leaving another “home” (Amsterdam), but this time heading for a different destination… My Dreams! A mix of very different emotions cross my body. Nostalgy: leaving the house that after one year become “home” with friends ringing the door belle at every time. Watching the living room so empty both on the walls, stripped of the travel photos that warmed them up till now, and empty of the friends that I had to say “see you soon”. Love: for the power that this city
The First Step
This travel, not only physical but also of research, starts today Friday 7th August 2015 with my resignation letter that I’ve been thinking about since long time. The reasons behing this decision are various and I want to fix them here in order to remember them in the moments of doubts and uncertaintly that I will face and that will make me sway along the way. My job has been giving me a financial security and many exciting experiences, but inside me the need of pursuit something different, to
