Yes! We! Can! :-)

Save the planet…

How’s that for a title J. The boys from Iqua came with another product in their solar powered range. The Iqua Vizor Sun gently replenishes its batteries using the sun. No power socket. No wires. Gadget boy’s heaven. And it clicks magnetically to the car. And it has great sound quality. And yep, I have …

Kaput de pas de vermak…

Which is Ichtegems (our grease monkey comes from there J) for: ouch, broken! We were not even an hour on our way to London when the right wheel of the trailer exploded. Big Bang. Molecules going everywhere, and the wheel dancing on its own on the highway. Luckily our driver had the hands on the …

Snowwhite hurt

A lot has been said on Spanish driving skills. And trust me, most of it appears to be true. Not only do most of the drivers navigate through nightmarish traffic using more cojones than brains… they appear to do so blindfolded, with a vengeance, on a mission and mostly on a collision course with certain …

Battle of the Giants: Tele Atlas out-decibels Parrot

A billion minutes ago, the Roman Empire was flourishing. About a billion hours ago, modern human beings …

And trust me; he celebrated this important milestone in style. Enough food to nourish a complete Botswana village (pancake, anyone? 🙂). Two sets of grandparents hovering around, beaming with pride. …

I’m 2 and I want 2 travel 2.

Meet Oscar, my Godchild. He’s 2,5. Clever. Charming. Irresistible. He will change the world as we know it, but give him some time. Growing up is a serious thing. My favourite pastime is to talk to him while I travel. We have hilarious conversations. Him listening @ his mom’s mobile phone, not uttering a word. …

No Castle without foundation :-)

Welcome to my blog. Here I will collect the incredible tales of a mobile warrior. No, honestly… travelling for a big chunk of my time, I just needed a place to collect my thoughts and pictures and share them. This first post was necessary, because a white canvas reeks of writers blog, euh… block. More …
