Play me a Video

This post is about video’s. I don’t make them often but now and then, when I am in an exceptional jolly mood, I push the button ‘play’…

Sahara

September 2012, the long ride through the Sahara. I made a few (shaky) video’s with Flip Video Camera which I unfortunately lost. If you want to hear me talk Dutch with just a slight accent, watch this : )

Brazil

August 2016 and I finally hit the tracks in Brazil. A rarity and I am instantly overrun with joy. Suddenly I don’t have to deal with truck loads of sugarcane and passing cars. It’s me and the red dusty earth. I’m loving it.

Peru

December 2016: That’s what cycling without a plan does: unexpected surprises come your way. I was meeting with an old-time friend. Not in Argentina where I was, but in Lima. Peru. I took a bus, 4 days on end. Going back I wanted to avoid more busses.

And so it happened I cycled back from Lima to Chile, on to Argentina, where I came from. To avoid the busy Pan-American Highway, I took yet one other bus to a point where I could deviate from this highway. On to a calmer coastal road. And boy!!! The second surprise came my way…

Peru

December 2016: the take off with paragliding in Paracas, not far from Lima. And below the landing, together with Jose, a pilot who has flown in all possible flying objects.

When I was with Seth, a friend I met 14 years ago, he wanted to take me out to parapente. I was immediately in for it as I have a big curiosity how it feels to be a bird. When cycling, birds often fly very near my head and I always get intrigued. Well, parapente feels like a bird and it can be compared with a very hard downhill on the bicycle, or with the Saharan wind in your back. Being in the air like this is having an immediate connection with Earth again! Thank you Seth…

Video’s are made with Samsung phone, except for the parapente video, that’s a GoPro.
