The most beautiful travel memory

“One of our best trips was without a doubt our first visit to South Africa. In over three weeks, we drove more than 4,000 kilometers with our rental car and really explored every corner. From the Big Five to the giant turtle just below the Mozambique border, everything was amazing and everyone was friendly and kind “.


“Years later we went again to South Africa, and now in combination with Driving game In Botswana where our stay was an hour’s drive from the South African border. Unfortunately, my partner was getting more sick and we had to come back in a hurry. Simon had to undergo urgent surgery on the appendix, followed by the necessary complications, which means that we can only go home after seven weeks. “

Longest / farthest trip

“Australia, New Year’s Eve in Sydney, followed by a wonderful tour and family visit. It was also nice to be back in the Netherlands after more than four weeks.”

The longest delay

“Australia, Alice Springs. After stopping, the plane ran into problems, so we had to spend a day and a half on Remote areas He had to spend. Still a highlight: Alice Springs is home to Aviation Doctors, with a beautiful museum. Although it reminded me more of the movie Priscilla, Queen of the Desert The whole company was stuck just like the rest of us! “

Lost bags

Our bags were not taken on the return flight from Naples. Due to a malfunction in the luggage belt system, the bags were already stacked meters high in the departure hall. Then we knew right away that we were going to land without bags. Two days later, KLM delivered it meticulously at home. Sometimes it’s also a good idea to not have to hear about the washing machine for a couple of days right after your vacation. “
