Reislustige familie crosst de hele wereld over in een oude vrachtwagen

redactie 10 dec 2018 Entertainment

Het is natuurlijk vet chill om je kind in een rustige, vertrouwde omgeving op te laten groeien. Dit gezin besloot het totaal anders te gaan doen. Ze gingen op reis met een oude vrachtwagen. Inmiddels hebben ze meer dan 24 landen bezocht, de foto’s die ze onderweg maken laten zien dat het best wel een retegoed idee is. 

Want zeg nou zelf, van reizen leer je misschien wel het allermeeste. Je maakt kennis met nieuwe culturen, ontmoet andere mensen en je ziet prachtige landschappen. Wij zouden dit ook best wel willen, maar goed vaak blijven dit soort ideeën bij dromen. Om dat patroon te doorbreken verkocht dit Oostenrijkse gezin alle bezittingen. Ze kochten een oude legertruck om deze vervolgens om te bouwen tot camper. Ze waren de sleur van het leven kapot zat, en dus besloten ze het over een compleet andere boeg te gooien. Ze zijn inmiddels 2 jaar onderweg en hebben nu aardig wat pieken en dalen meegemaakt. Er komt veel kijken bij zo’n reis. Toch zijn ze nog lang niet van plan om te stoppen, dit is pas het begin:

Almost forgot that a couple of days ago we had our 2nd anniversary on the road 😉 A few more days and our adventure “Asia” is finished and we’ll move on to our 3rd continent. We’re looking forward to it and are super stoked and glad to finally hit the road and being back “home” again ✌🏻

Truck is on the way to Australia and we finally made it, at least the first part!! But not without the biggest challenges we‘ve ever had on this trip. Sometimes life tests us big to make us big!! 💪 – #nevergiveup #borobudur #borobudurtemple #offtoaustralia

Almost forgot the feeling of being back in the mountains and somehow, a kind of homesickness became noticeable… But of course, only because of the mountains 😉 – #mountains #iamfromaustria #homesick #mountaineering #iphone #shotoniphone

We are neither religious people, nor spiritual or esoteric ones. But in the last months we met some awesome people who really inspired us, talking a lot about the universe and the flow of life. So, what´s our plan right now after all these bad news? We don´t know, yet. But what we know is, getting angry and busy, complaining about the situation doesn´t help anyone. That´s a part of our game. So, let´s give it a try and put it out to the universe and go with the flow. If one door closes, another one will open – hopefully. Maybe there was not the right time to go to Australia. Even if it is much easier said than done, we try to live in the present. And this place is absolutely perfect for us right now, to get lost in the here and now, recharge our batteries and see what is coming next. – – – #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #overland #stocksy #stocksyunited #dometic #dometicfollowsakela #mobileliving #liveoutdoors #roamtheplanet #tourtheplanet #ourplanetdaily #indonesia #exploreindonesia #wonderfulindonesia #livefolkindonesia #universe #milkyway #campfire #nighshot #faith #sumbawa

Back to daily life! Holidays still have to wait, at least for us adults… Precleaning for Australia is on 😩 It took us more than 6 days to roughly clean only the interior!! Laundry has to be done, visa extension aswell… Fortunately my mom is visiting us here on Bali and Lennox has some days off in a nice hotel with pool – jealous!!! ;-)) – – – #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #overland #vanlife #vanlifediaries #mobileliving #liveoutdoors #stocksy #stocksyunited #DometicfollowsAkela #dometic #traveltheworld #landscapescapture #ProjectVanLife #roamtheplanet #ourplanetdaily #indonesia #bali #precleaning

Traveling with a photographer in the family can be really rewarding. Going to beautiful places with less people, seeing sunrises and sunsets, getting nice pictures for the memory book. Ahhh amazing, don´t you think so? But on the other hand… Man, i know traveling with a photographer can be so annoying! Getting up super early, less sleep, location checks, exhausting hikes and hours of driving to remote places, standing still for pictures, waiting until all different angles are shot and saved on the memory card. Even the little one is almost always with us… Dear family, sorry for all the exhausting situations, all the stress which is going along with this and thank you so much for all your patience, efforts, help and your believe in me/us. Altough it might look like sometimes, i don´t take that for granted! All these pictures wouldn´t have been possible without you!!! Really really appreciate that – LOVE YOU!!!!!! ❤️❤️😘 – – – #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #overland #vanlife #vanlifediaries #mobileliving #liveoutdoors #stocksy #stocksyunited #DometicfollowsAkela #dometic #traveltheworld #landscapescapture #ProjectVanLife #roamtheplanet #ourplanetdaily #indonesia #bali #exploreindonesia #wonderfulindonesia #explorebali #ulundanuberatan @beautifuldestinations @artofvisuals @folkgood

Actually we didn´t plan to visit Bandar Seri Begawan, the capitol of Brunei. But luckily a local guy convinced us and gave us a lift into town. – – – #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #overland #vanlife #vanlifediaries #mobileliving #liveoutdoors #stocksy #stocksyunited #DometicfollowsAkela #dometic #traveltheworld #landscapescapture #ProjectVanLife #roamtheplanet #ourplanetdaily #brunei #masjidomaralisaifuddien #sultan #igmalaysia @natgeotravel @beautifuldestinations @artofvisuals

Borneo has probably one of the most beautiful beaches and seascapes. And shot in the right light and angle it looks like paradise. And probably it would be, but what you never see on this postcard pictures is the whole shitload of rubbish and plastic on the beaches. Some from locals, some from tourists, but most of it drifted from the ocean onto the shore. Dear people on this planet – please don’t start just thinking and talking about this – start acting now!!! – #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #overland #vanlife #vanlifediaries #mobileliving #liveoutdoors #stocksy #stocksyunited #DometicfollowsAkela #dometic #traveltheworld #ProjectVanLife #ourplanetdaily #malaysia #borneo #sabah #greenhell #igmalaysia #dji #djimavicpro #drone #dronestagram #savetheplanet

Alright, and here my picture from the Supermoon. I tell you, planning this picture was the most intense picture i´ve ever taken! I came here to the „Wedding Rock“ to take a picture at sunset with some long exposure. You know, the nice and kitchy one.., I recognized also a lot of other photographers there, with mighty tripods and zoom lenses. Everything in the right position for THE shot. But during sunset they just stood there and did…. nothing!!?? I had no idea what´s wrong with them. Suddenly they got busy and started moving a few meters to the left and you just heard it – klick, klick, klick, klick… Hmmmmhhh??? I looked up and Woooowwww. The moon. Alright, that explains a lot. Totally forgot that there is a supermoon coming ;-))) To cut a long story short – i joined them – klick, klick, klick, e voila ;-)))) – – – #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #overland #vanlife #vanlifediaries #mobileliving #liveoutdoors #stocksy #stocksyunited #DometicfollowsAkela #traveltheworld #landscapescapture #ProjectVanLife #roamtheplanet #japantravel #japan #japan_of_insta #ise #weddingrock #wedding #moon #supermoon #nightshot @instagramjapan @natgeotravel @beautifuldestinations @artofvisuals

Ooops, we did it again – breakdown!! Engine overheated with outside temperatures of -10 degree Celsius!! Really?? Yep, two times. In the middle of nowhere in Siberia – on a Sunday! Perfect timing!! After two days of checking the waterpump, the thermostat and the cooling system, we figured out that the cooling liquid from the engine was frozen and it was not liquid enough anymore, to cool down the engine. Altough we had Anti freeze until about -30 degree Celsius in it??!! #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #overland #vanlife #mobileliving #liveoutdoors #stocksy #stocksyunited #DometicfollowsAkela #russia #siberia #breakdown #overheated #mercedes #mercedesbenz #nothingcanstopus #unbreakable

I made myself a very special birthday present on a very special location. Driving for more than 10 hours on really shitty roads along the Pamir Highway in Tajikistan. So, happy Birthday to me ;-))) Btw… thanks for all the birthday wishes. Unfortunately i can´t thank you all personally, but i really appreciate every single one!! #akela #worldtrip #roadtrip #fromalptoalp #family #trucklife #adventure #travel #stocksy #stocksyunited #DometicfollowsAkela #tajikistan #pamir #pamirhighway #birthday #mercedes #mercedesbenz #shittyroads #mountainsarecalling
