Scuba Diving on La Palma – Canary Islands – Spain

In July 2020 I was fortunate enough to head of to La Palma in between lock downs. At the time of writing this La Palma has just been put on safe lists again by many European countries such as The Netherlands, Germany and UK. Meaning, if you have some free time on your hands… it’s time to pack your scuba […]

World War II landtour in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is one of those perfect scuba dive destinations where you can combine really good diving with some interesting land excursions. During my stay in Rabaul I did a landtour with Rabaul-Kokopo Dive where I visited many different sites that told the rich WWII history. During WWII Rabaul was in hands of the Japanese. During that time the […]

Visiting Las Vegas in the heat of summer

In the absolute heat of summer I ended up in Las Vegas! This was not my first visit, but it was definitely hotter than last time. Temperatures easily reached 40-45C (104-113F) and even at night it wouldn’t cool down at al. But man, what an amazing city is Vegas, even when it’s this hot. My trip was focused on casino’s, […]

Get your Tourist Visa for Thailand in Amsterdam

Just a brief note for my fellow Dutchies: get your Tourist Visa for Thailand in Amsterdam! The last few weeks I’ve been trying to find a suitable visa service to order a visa for Thailand. Andddd it’s been hell! First of all the prices the service desks charge are outrageous. Besides their regular fee, which is more than fair for […]

Barcelona Express – recap

Right now I’m sitting in the airplane, waiting for it to take off. I’m exhausted and happy. We managed to hitchhike to Barcelona in 6 days. A total of 1700 kilometers. That without stopping, direct from door to door, alone is 18 hours. We did it in 28 hours spread over 6 days, including ride swaps and catching rides. An […]

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 […]
