We are René and Gaby, we're Dutch, we live, study and work in Hull (United Kingdom) and would like to welcome you on our website.
As the website-title might suspect, this website will inform you about our plans to travel around the world.
We still have no idea when this event will take place; the main 'issue' is money and having enough of that to pay for an immense trip like this. But that doesn't mean we can't dream about which places we want to visit.. This website will therefore also harbour other plans for trips around the world, beginning with the one that will lead us to China in 2013.
2012/8/19: Well, because it will take us some more years to save up the money we need for the great trip we've decided to make some 'smaller' journeys to the countries that will be more difficult or impossible to visit during the great trip around the world. That's why next year (October 2013) we will leave for a few months to travel China by bicycle!
2010/8/17: We're married! Click here for the photos! We had a wonderful day...
2010/6/8: Our wedding day is finally getting close! Almost everything we needed to arrange has been arranged. No wedding-stress so far! Because our trip is still a few years away, the arrangements for that are going quite slowly. But that doesn't mean we're not excited about it anymore. But you can see it back on our website, on which things are also quite slow. Thay will probably change when it's getting a bit closer.
2009/8/12: 22nd of July 2010, we are getting married!
2009/8/12: After a two week campingtrip all through France, we found out our camping gear is near perfection! We really enjoyed it and want to take the offroads one day to do it again.
2009/5/7: We haven't been very busy with planning, but we have bought some gear already. We bought a multi-fuel burner (Whisperlite) with a fuel-bottle, as well as some other camping-gear: a couple of 5cm self-inflatable mattresses and a couple of mummy-sleepingbags, left and right versions, so they can be zipped together!
2009/3/29: We are getting married next year. 29th of March, Wolve asked me to marry him, and I said 'yes'!
2009/3/22: Yesterday we got ourselves two allroads! The Honda XL600R for Wolve and!! a Yamaha XT600E for Faithy! Pictures of both will follow soon!
2009/2/27: Today we went to the Motorbeurs Utrecht and we had all the time to get to know the Ténéré's before we arrange a test-drive.
See the new Photo-page for some pictures!
2009/2/20: We have found our first all-road bike on the Motor-Forum: A Honda XL600R.
It's not ours yet, because the owner is going to do some last check-ups before we can pick him up! Until we have a second one, it will be survival of the fittest between René and me: who's going to ride it first!?
2009/1/13: We went by our Yamaha dealer to catch a glimpse of the Ténéré, it's really big! But it's still our favourite bike. We talked quite a bit to the people working there, and we're getting more and more exited! They have a demo-model available in a few months, maybe we can make a final decision about the bikes by then!
2009/1/10: We have started investigating some accessories we will be needing when we go on our trip!
