Brompton Gent – Hamme – Gent

September 3, 2019

I drove from Gent to a meeting in Hamme and back today. Okay, bye. Oh wait. Here’s a screenshot. Bye. … Read More

Bromptom Gent – Geel – Hamme – Brussels – Gent (07/01 – 07/02)

June 30, 2019

Sunday 30/6 Time to get busy again. Tomorrow I need to be in Geel at 9AM (>100 km from Gent). I will never make it on one battery. Therefore I will take the train to Antwerp, and cycle the remaining 40km. This should be no problem, with the wind coming from the east, and a … Read More

Visiting clients with my Brompton Electric (6/19/2019)

June 19, 2019

I’ll try to clean up this part of the blog at some point. But I had this new idea and quickly typing it down here. I hate cars. And I hate trains as well (except for night trains). But for a program I’m working on I need to visit (potential) clients all around Belgium. Okay, … Read More

Calgary (18-12-2016)

December 18, 2016

Dear diary, I’m in Calgary since Wednesday the 14th now. Staying in the HI-Calgary City Center hostel in East Village. I’m not in the mood to type a lot right now, but for memories sake I’ll write a quick log about what happened in the last couple of days. Tue 13th of December At 15:00 (GMT+1) … Read More

Not that anyone is going to read this (hopefully)… (12-12-2016)

December 13, 2016

… but I thought keeping a journal from time to time is not the worst way to spend your time. So here it is. Travel Blog Resurrected. Or Travel Blog v 2.0. Or just another Travel blog. Okay yeah.. you get it. So, what’s this one all about? I’m off to another small adventure. I call … Read More

Brest to Warsaw – May 22

July 15, 2014

We chose Brest as a place to rest. Not only because it rhymes, but mainly because it is a border city and we had heard that crossing the Belarusian border can take several hours. Additionally it is prohibited to cross it on foot. After a breakfast of champions we set foot for the border. After a couple of … Read More

Brest – May 21th

We did absolutely nothing in Brest. To be continued… … Read More

Minsk to Brest – May 20

May 25, 2014

I woke up at 11:00. I still had some rumbling intestines but at least my nausea was gone, so we decided to move. We started hitching at a spot where some hookers were looking for a different kind of ride. After 15 minutes a father with his two children stopped to eat some ice cream. … Read More

Minsk – May 14 – May 19

May 24, 2014

I just have too many impressions about Minks and Belarus. I’ve been breaking my head for a while on how to write a blog post about it that would catch the essence without becoming too lengthy. As you can see I didn’t break my head over it very long, because this entire paragraph isn’t contributing … Read More

Moscow to Minsk – May 13 – May 14

May 21, 2014

After making a thermos of coffee and having an awkward kind of hug with Yulia, (I think she was expecting a firm handshake or a pat on the shoulder,) we took a metro to a bus stop near the third ring road around Moscow. Last night, we had been looking for an escape plan together … Read More

Moscow – May 12

May 17, 2014

Yulia was kind enough to let us sleep in and leave us a key to her apartment while she was out working. She had also left us some oatmeal porridge. I took advantage of the situation by working and showering and eating porridge and playing the ukulele all day. Meanwhile Brecht went to check out … Read More

Velikiy Novgorod to Moscow (The Road of Death A.K.A. The Day We Got Robbed) – May 11

May 16, 2014

This morning, after a quick breakfast of champions, Sacha and Margo called a cab to take us to the edge of the town. Taking a cab was only a little bit more expensive than the bus and a lot faster. We got out of the taxi near a tank covered with flowers. When I pulled … Read More

Velikiy Novgorod – May 10

May 15, 2014

I slept until noon, and could have easily gone on for a couple of hours more, if it wasn’t for Roodzji (the red cat) who exhorted me to get up by purring loudly into my ear and playfully biting my finger. After a small brunch that Margo and Sacha had made, we introduced them to … Read More
