The Trip 2017

The story of a guy going on a once in a lifetime road trip of 25.000 Km through 41 countries in 3 months all whilst supporting 12 charities.

In the summer of 2017, as part of my European road trip (blogpost: 25.000 km Europe road trip part 9 : Warsaw and Krakow in Poland) I planned to visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps and the museum nearby Krakow, Poland. Established by the Nazis in 1940, the Polish city of Oswiecim was selected by the "Third Reich" to be the...
I said my goodbyes to the Baltic states (blogpost: 25.000 km Europe road trip part 8 : Riga (Latvia) and Vilnius (Lithuania)) and after Vilnius the next stop was Warsaw (Poland). The distance was about 460 Km., but the roads were absolutely terrible! Gone are the fancy routes of the Baltic States which consisted of smooth tarmac and a gasstation every...
My time in Estonia had come to an end and after spending two days in Pärnu we crossed the border into Latvia to drive towards Riga. For this trip I was joined by two new road trip buddies; Haiko from The Netherlands and Eric from Ivory Coast. It was a fun trip as it was cool to have some...
After a quiet time in Finland my hopes were set for the famous Baltic States. Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania were all on my bucket list and I could not wait to visit all their capitals: Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius. The ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn was easily booked with DirectFerries.com and for just € 55 ,- (passenger + car) I...
I finally did it! I had reached the most northern part in Europe and the North Cape was totally worth the extra kilometers Louie and I had to drive to get to the famous cliff. The northern part of Norway had been an absolute pleasure. With an adventure on the Lofoten Islands and a visit to "The Globe" statue...

My time on the Lofoten Islands was coming to an end and there was one final Norwegian landmark that was on my bucketlist; The North Cape. The North Cape is often considered the northernmost point of Europe. On the top of the cliff there is a beautiful viewing point of the merger of the Norwegian sea and the Barents...
Visiting the Lofoten has always been my dream. I arrived in the port of Sørvågen at 6.30 AM after taking a 3-hour ferry from Bodø. It was a early trip, but once I arrived it was all worth it. As it was still early on a Friday morning and my room was not available until 2.00 PM I decided to drive...
It was time to head north or else I would stay in Norway forever! There is just so much to see that you could easily spend weeks traveling on just the south and west part of Norway.  After hiking the Trolltunga I made a quick 5 day stop in Solvorn where the Eplet Bed and Apple Farm is located. I recharged my...
I was walking around Bergen when I came across a ticket shop for the famous fjord cruises. Between all the big offers, on a small  A-4 paper there was a sign that said; Learn how to make apple juice and sauces. Visit the Eplet Bed and Apple farm in Solvorn! Hmm.. That is something new, I thought. I don't have...
