Lonely Planet Collection Update

On 6 December 2015 from Reuver, Netherlands | comments closed

After 6 years, it is time to update my Lonely Planet Collection. I am only listing the physical books below, as I also started to get a little collection of Lonely Planet e-books in PDF format. Especially for last-minute trips (when there is not enough time to order the physical book), trips to only a small part of a country (where a chapter in PDF format is much more cost effective than ordering the whole book) or minimum luggage trips (e.g. hiking in Nepal where the book adds weight and I can read the e-book on mobile/tablet/e-reader anyways). In case you need to borrow one, you know where to find me.

Website Update 2009

On 22 July 2009 from Prague, Czech Republic | comments closed

You may have noticed few website updates lately, which is entirely due to the fact that I am using my website primarily as my travel blog and photo gallery. And as I only blog on trips longer than 1 week, there have been no blog updates. There has not been a lack of shorter trips though, so not to worry 😉

My website is currently using the following open-source scripts [updated 22 August 2009 & 20 December 2009]:

The Ultimate Car

On 13 July 2008 from Rotterdam, Netherlands | comments closed

Does anybody have 99.000 euro (excl. VAT) for me?
The Tesla Roadster is finally coming to Europe!

This is _the_ ultimate car: fast (0-100 km/h in 3,9 s), environmentally friendly (electric engine, no CO2 emissions), and it’s a roadster (more driving fun). The future of automobiles is here.
I want one.

Website Update 2008

On 31 January 2008 from Reuver, Netherlands | comments closed

I have been using a website traffic counter since one of the first websites I created in 1998. Over the years the company providing the counter has changed its name from Nedstat to Webstats4u to Motigo. The last name change also brought about a change in advertising: the horrible pop-under appeared. Since that really annoyed me in South America and I got complaints from site visitors as well, I decided to remove the counter with almost 10 years of history, and go with Google Analytics from now on.

I also brought my website fully up-to-date with the latest open-source scripts [updated 24 May 2008, 15 July 2008, 18 September 2008 & 15 December 2008]:
