De epische zoektocht naar vloeistof voor het chemisch toilet

Eén van de lollige dingen aan een camper is dat er een chemisch toilet in zit. Praise the Lord! Nu hoor je aan het woord ‘chemisch’ dat er dus een substantie aan te pas komt om dit toilet goed te doen functioneren, een chemische vloeistof meer bepaald. Toen we onze trip startten in september hadden we natuurlijk een voorraadje mee, geen probleem. Maar wat doe je als dat spul op geraakt? Waar koop je dat??

Roadtrip start vandaag!

Oh help wat is het vroeg! Het is nu 4u30 (’s morgens ja) en dadelijk komt de taxi ons oppikken en zijn we ermee weg. Eerst vliegen we naar Lissabon en dan is het nog even rijden naar onze geliefde mobilhome. Vanavond slapen we weer op ons harde bedje naast de oceaan, woohoow!


Ik zal hier onze wedervaren posten, maar check zeker ook mijn Instagram.

Tot gauw!

Our last night in the camper 😥

I was so sad to leave Peniche this morning, but we had to head in the direction of Lisbon again. We had some beautiful last days though…

Now we are at the camping, cleaning the camper and washing all the clothes and towels so that we can leave our little home in good condition here in Lisbon for a few week…

So this is the (for now) last night in our mobile bed…


Weather report: cold but sunny

The wonderful thing about Peniche and Baleal is that you have beaches in different directions, which creates different options for surfers.

Michael and Amélie got in the water immediately on Friday, but they discovered that the temperature is not quite the same as when we were here a few weeks ago and they froze their feet off 😬

This called for a solution of course:

And then they were good to go 👍

To be honest, it IS getting colder now, around 15 degrees during the day. In the sun it’s still amazing, but after sunset it gets cold very quickly. For the very first time I made myself a cup of tea tonight!

I refuse to put on the heater 💪

Here some more pictures of the last days:

Home sweet home ;)

Ok, not really, but it FEELS like home this camper of us 😊

After 4 great days of trainings and beautiful dinners and parties, downsizing was not as hard as I thought it would be.

On the contrary! It felt good to have my little tribe with me and hit the road again.


We decided to go back to Peniche, the place we liked the most so far in Portugal. We will spend our last week here before the first leg of our trip comes to an end and we fly back to Belgium for the holidays…

Halleluja he has a board!!!

The last few days in Sagres were all about Michael finally finding a board that fits his uhm… grandiose body 😜
So Thursday we went to a lot of surf shops and they ALL had a different view on what kind of board a man of his ‘stature’ should have 🙄 We did a little tour and went as far as Luz, where I filmed the special weather conditions that day 😱

The most positive thing that day was that we Ran into Alex and Anastasia (the hairdresser) AGAIN 😂

We were so beat that we decided to stay in Luz for the night on a nice parking, together with a Swedish couple in a camper. The view was amazing: my dream house!!

What do you think?? Pretty nice huh, with sea view and all 😜

The day after we headed back to Sagres and visited one last surf shop and…

Yes!!!! Found the perfect board!! So today we drove up to Sines where the waves are perfect for beginners and yes ladies and gentleman: the board and the man fit perfectly together 

We have a happy man in the house 😊
