Today is the day that I will start with my long-cherished dream. A trip around this beautiful planet we call earth. And that on my own. Exciting! No SUPER exciting! Exciting for a thousand and one reasons. But mainly because I’m going to step out of my comfort zones and hope to cross off some things from my ‘list of awesomeness “, which would be awesome. I will enter a new world of unknown exotic languages, habits and manners. A world where I need to make new friends every day (at least if I want), like being on the school yard for the first time. A world which hopefully will be better then my dreams & expectations… And maybe a bit corny but I hope I’m going to get to know myself a bit better.

Besides being excited, I’m also a little reluctant, to be honest. Since I’m going to miss friends and family. This will be hard in the beginning I think, but the world is so ‘small’ with all the technical possibilities these days. So it will almost feel like everyone I like is with me (kind of ; )). In any case, I’m going to share my experiences and adventures through this site. As you might have seen I do this in English and Dutch (scroll down). In what form (video, photo and/or video) I do not know exactly yet. What I do know is that I have a super deluxe ‘big’ small travel plan! The plan is to travel to the Great Wall (China) to the ice caps (of Patagonia). The planning and conduct of the whole trip can be found on “the trip” page (where this beautiful map below can be found as well).

Anyway see you on the other side 😉
