Barcelona Express – day 6

Today was the last day of our hitchiking trip. We only had to do an odd 100km from again the middle of nowhere (15km above Girona) to just under Barcelona. The place where we camped was absolutely trashed this morning. There had been a huge party during the night, until like 4AM. The result of it was trash, cups and […]

Barcelona Express – day 5

Last night after we had finished the hitchhiking we had a lot of spare time, as we had arrived first. We were hanging around a bit, setting up our tent, finding good places to charge our electrical etc. At 18:30 we were served a magnificent dish of Paela with chicken, shrimp and mussels. It was really delicious. Avignon Crusade Then […]

Barcelona Express – day 4

With 3 days of hitchhiking done and 3 more to go we were exactly half way this morning. The atmosphere at breakfast was really good.

Booking Scuba Diving in Varadero Cuba

Cuba has always been a country high on my bucket list. Not necessary because of the Scuba diving but mostly because of the rich history of the country. The people who have visited Cuba in general can be split in two groups of people, the haters and the lovers. When it comes to Scuba diving in Varadero, I think you’re […]

Why I love to travel alone

For the last 3 years I’ve started to take trips on my own. The first solo vacation was to the Dominican Republic in 2014. It was, unsurprisingly, a holiday focussed on Scuba Diving. Well technically my first solo trip was in 2005, when I was 19, to New York for an online game meet… But once arrived in NYC I […]
