Hobbies and interests

Travel and Land Rovers lead the way, not necessarily in that order, but a combination of both is best. You will most likely find him behind a camera lens, and loves to write numerous blogs (travel, outdoors) with a fascination for clunky old cars, movies, the outdoors and camping.

off the beaten path

In 2010 he made his “best mistake ever” by taking part in the Croatia Trophy 4×4 Competition as a co-driver/navigator. This daunting eight-day challenge galvanised him to enter their own Land Rover in the “Adventure class” in 2011. The Land Rover virus still has him firmly in its grip, but he has managed to diversify, and lately, loves getting lost in Botswana!

Land Rover Club Holland WEBSITE

An example of his creativity and commitment can be found in volunteering for the Land Rover Club Holland as a member of the Communication Committee. He was responsible for their content creation, curation, and translation (English/Dutch) for several years, keeping the website up-to-date with the latest news and articles about Land Rovers.

This passion for travel, adventure and the outdoors means being flexible, adaptive, and able to roll with it (especially in Africa). He is resourceful in his work as a freelance content creator, and you can also find him sharing his creativity on YouTube:

So many memories in that little Renault 5!
