    Home sweet home

    March 11, 2019 in the Netherlands ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    After spending 17 days together in the car, we made it back to the Netherlands! Sadly, it is time that each one of us goes their separate ways, but we rest assured that we will always stay connected through the shared memories of this incredible journey. We want to thank everyone for following our footprints as intensively as you did, and for donating as much as you did to our charity project!

    And on that bombshell,
    Krekhut out.

    Finish and ceremony

    March 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 4 °C

    We made it!!!

    We did not get into the top 3 in the roadbook competition, but we were very surprised to hear that, of all the teams, we drove the most kilometers:

    9049 total kilometers in 16 days🚙

    Guess driving through the night to reach the Lofoten was the right decision.

    Now we enjoy the last night in Hamburg and tomorrow we drive back to the Netherlands!

    Thank you all for bringing our charity total to an amazing 1357,50 EUR and reading along during our adventure🙏.

    More pictures to follow :)

    March 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    We are all together again, reunited in Hamburg!
    On to the finish and ceremony tonight💪

    Apparently Arjan got so excited to meet Gera again that our FindPenguins tracker mistook our autobahn tour for a flight route...Read more

    March 10, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    We are back in Germany and approaching the last 200 km of the Baltic Sea Circle! Highways are permitted today to get in time for the finish in Hamburg this afternoon🚙

    Mooie aankomst gewenst! En goede 're-union' met Gera! (Wouke)

    March 9, 2019 in Poland ⋅ 🌬 6 °C

    Our first stop in Poland is the town of Gdansk.
    We took a quick look around its old Town and found its streets lively and busy. Shame that we aren't able to stay the night here.

    We just entered Poland (behind team #19, our friends from the co-pilot exchange). This is already the last country of the rally before the finish! 🇵🇱

    Even the weather has started to look like home..

    Temporary goodbye

    March 8, 2019 in Lithuania ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    Today, we unfortunately had to drop Gera off at the airport, but for a good reason! Tomorrow she will be playing the quarter finals of the Dutch football cup with her club DTS Ede🔵⚪ against ADO Den Haag.

    For all people reading in the Delft area: kick-off is at 11:30 in the Cars Jeans Stadium of ADO. Be there or be square!

    We are looking forward to being reunited with Gera in Hamburg at the finish line but for now:

    Heel veel succes Gera en rest van het team en win die pot, dan kunnen we de halve finale wél meemaken💪.

    Lots of success, Gera! (Wilma)

    Three days to go

    March 8, 2019 in Lithuania ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    We just arrived in Lithuania. It has been an amazing journey so far and we still have three more days to go before we drive back home.
    For the charity of our chosing Ecologische Landbouwprojecten Ghana (ELPG), which translates to Ghana Organic Agricultural Projects (GOAP), we have collected €1350 so far. We are very happy with this and want to thank you all for your donations. Like our journey, there are however still three more days to go in which it is possible to support our campaign!
