'Bestemming Beijing' in Bookstore!>!
Bestemming Beijing, our book about about the expedition can be found in all major bookstores in the Netherlands and Belgium. We received so many reguests after the journey for the complete story, that we decided to write it all down. So the last few months we dug deep in our memory, re-read our diary and wrote it all down. What can you expect.. well a lot we can assure you! On this website for example, we never mentioned our hilarious audience with the Dailai Lama of Tibet and our frustrations while driving in China.
Part of the revenue made with this book will be donated to SOS-Childrens Villages! So don't forget to buy: Bestemming Beijing. Delivery at home via bol.com is possible by buying it online. Just click here: Bestemming Beijing

Hanjin Shipping took care of shipping the car back to the Netherlands for us as well as lashing (securing) hippie in the container. By locking the container we knew this was it. The end of the journey, the end of the expedition. Saying goodbye to hippie felt weird and strange. Good thing is that we know hippie is in good hands....
Read about the whole journey in our day to day diary on the Daily journal page.
The last village!!!
It's time to meet the press. We sit down and, with lots of camera's pointed at us, tell our story. The press loves to hear the stories about western China as they have never been there before. They even have to laugh as we tell the roads have been bad and saw many stranded vehicles in a snowstorm. For more then an hour we answer questions and show pictures of the journey. Maybe we should give company presentations in the Netherlands!! Anyone interested??

Good news on the Sars situation!
We were in China and it all seemed to be safe! Every now and then we had to avoid a gurgling or spitting Chinese but there is no sign of Sars!
