Believe me when I say I was a little scared about buying a car for our Canada and U.S.A. road trip. We had never owned a car before, not even back home in the Netherlands. After all, why waste money on a car in a tiny country where you can reach everything by public transport. That meant however, we had…

Since publishing my Oman itinerary and Oman accommodation guide, several people have asked me about the necessary daily travel budget for Oman. And since I always obsessively keep check of every euro, dollar, dong, rupee or in this case Omani Rial we spend I am happy to share our Oman expenses. Oman: daily travel budget for a 2-week road trip Check…

Oman isn’t a very well known country. In fact, when I announced Frank and I would be making a road trip around Oman many people asked: why are you going there, is it not one big desert? Having explored Oman for 2 weeks by car I can safely say it most definitely is not… Oman is beautiful and has a…

I’ve already written a lot of posts about Japan but there is so much more to share, Japan is just awesome! One of the coolest places in Japan (quite literally) is Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan. Hokkaido is wild, untamed and the scenery is stunning. I felt very tiny compared to the massive volcanoes and the high walls of snow…

It was a very last-minute decision to go to Andalusia. My parents invited me to join them a couple of days on their 3 week road trip around Spain and Portugal and I didn’t have to think twice about their offer. That’s how I found myself on a plane to Seville mere days after their invitation, exited to be going…

It’s no secret I love road trips… In fact, I am a self-confessed road trip addict and I love road trips so much I actually mention this in the very limited amount of characters available on my Twitter (and IG and Pinterest) account. I love the freedom of having my own wheels, exploring off the beaten track places and pulling…

2014 was a year without much travel for me because I was saving up all my holiday days and money for the big 5-month trip to New Zealand and Southeast Asia. Luckily, I did manage to get away for two weeks; I went skiing in January and I took a one week trip to Sardinia in September. And wow, Sardinia was beautiful! A…

For our trip in New Zealand we didn’t have to think twice about our preferred way of transportation: we rented a van for 42 days and loved every second of it! The freedom of having your own wheels… going everywhere you want, driving twisting (gravel) roads, pulling over anywhere you want to enjoy jet another spectacular view… Fantastic! Finding a budget…
