August 1976: we, Thijs and Rieneke Leenders got married and embarked on a honeymoon around the world. On this five year trip, we traveled across the five continents in a camper. Instead of shipping our tiny home, we chose to buy and sell our vehicle when crossing from one continent to the other. In between campers, travel by public transportation and at one time a motorcycle added to the adventure.
January 2015, we started our second honeymoon around the world. We like to revisit some favorite places, and explore the many sites they had missed the first time around.Accompanied by our dog Kakao, we chose to travel slow and simple, living in a twenty foot Mercedes Sprinter camper. We get excited when we find the most beautiful and exotic places the world has to offer. After decades of settled life, it takes a while to get used to the gypsy way again, but we see it progressing.
Two and a half traveling years have already passed for the second time around, and the need to keep a good blogging site has become more obvious. While some travel stories have been posted on Rieneke’s website , most records of the recent trip has been recorded on Rieneke’s facebook page, which has been kept open to the public. Hopefully from now on, this blog site will serve as the journal of the many travels yet to come.
