Too often we stay in our safe corner and accomplish nothing. What if Marie Curie didn’t do research about radioactivity? We may never have had the X-ray machine. I don’t mean we must go that extreme but if we always stay in that corner we don’t make any progress. If we want to achieve anything, we need to do things that we wouldn’t do in our normal life. Meaning to step out of our comfort zone.

Do we want to escape our standard 9 to 5 life? Last week I was on a day trip with my spouse Sil and our dog Lorion to the Belgian coast at Oostende. We had planned a day off to take time for ourselves and just “seize the day”. See what came upon our path and let everything else behind.

Diversity in South Africa Early 2012 me, my spouse and some friends came together to decide our next holiday location. We didn’t want to go just “on a next trip” but we wanted to make a big journey for 3 weeks. After a few hours, we decided to go to South Africa to search for the Big Five in the jungle and in the National Kruger Park, see the city life of Cape Town, and whatever else we had the opportunity for. I’m not going to tell every step we made in this journey because that ...
What is the fun of an MX-5? Many people asked me: “what is the fun of owning and driving a Mazda MX-5?”. Let me start with giving you a little tour back in time. It was around spring 2010 that I was talking to a good friend (who owns a gray MX-5 from 1998). He was telling about the club he joined and how they enjoy cruising the country with the top down. He told me that this would also be a lot of fun for me and that he was looking for a good co-pilot to read the road books. And he was…
Do I get bored of the MX-5 trips with the club? No, I don’t 😀 It’s so much fun to go out on a day-trip with those people. It’s almost like going out for a day with your family. What do we do? I’ll tell you.
Photo Shoot for Touring Magazine Last year I was checking my Facebook and saw I had a private message from Ronald, chairman of the MMRC (Miata MX-5 Roadster Club). He said that someone was looking for an original stock MX-5 NA (first model) for a photo shoot and he was thinking about my car. The shoot was for a local roadside assistance services, Touring. With the release of the brand new Mazda MX-5 ND, they would like to see both the NA and the ND side by side to compare all the differences
It’s been a while… …since my last blog. It’s been a real rollercoaster for me. I’m not writing this down to complain, on the contrary, I’m more tenacious than before. The last 8 months I’ve gone from a lot of pain to confused, confounded and back to reality. Yes, I know, that line is also confusing but let me try to explain. (July 16 –25 2016 we went on vacation to Norway with the MMRC (Miata MX-5 Roadster Club). Magnificent country, great roads, beautiful (ruff) nature. We really enjoyed…
