AROUND MOTHER EARTH IN 60 YEARS !!!
After falling in love in 1958, most free time was spent on the water, initially with a sailing boat of dad, later followed by our first * own * boat.
Because * abroad * already fascinated us, a car of dad was borrowed and in 10 days camping over 3000 km of Europe was explored. Our first * world trip * was a fact.
Even after we got married, we continued to explore Europe by car and tent, but now with two children. In 1968 we came to an end and we returned to the water and spent those years sailing on the Dutch waters and the North Sea. The children had their own dinghy.
In 1978 we sold our boats and initially started as a family during the school holidays and free time and later together again, exploring Europe, the last six years with a self-built simple semi-camper. At that time there were no plans for the sale of home and possessions for full-time world travel.
After a period of more than 40 years of work, we shipped a self-built semi-camper to Halifax / Nova Scotia / Canada in 1990 and drove 72,000 km through North and Central America in a full year, without using campsites. After this tour, until the end of 1992, we traveled again through Europe, after which our car was sold. We started a new challenge, by continuing as backpackers with the exploration of Mother Earth, using public transport and budget accommodations. It took until 1995 to sell our house and possessions.
Our slogan: The way to the horizon has no and, go on go on, enjoying new perspectives all the time !!!
