Huasteca Potosina is a less visited area of Mexico, most tourists you”ll see here are Mexican. At least, when visiting in May or June. I was on a family visit/holiday in Mexico when a friend of my father suggested to visit the Sierra Gorda in Queretaro. This mountainous region is known for its foggy mountains, […]
My first ambition in life was to become a jungle explorer. Growing up in Mexico, even as a five year old this was already very clear to me...
This ambition never died and whenever possible I'm out exploring the world. I like to travel as light and self-sufficient as possible, to be able to reach remote places and be overwhelmed by the beauty of this big blue planet. These travels keep drawing me back to nature and enjoying it to the fullest during all seasons. I feel it's important to document these untouched and remote wild places and raise awareness about their biodiversity in order to protect our unique ecological treasure .
I like to study diverse subjects of the natural world. Biology, ecology, flora, wildlife tracking & management, natural navigation, etc… It's a never ending story and luckily so. Also I'm a bit of a gear freak and love checkin' out the latest on backpacks, sleeping bags, sat phones, GPS's and other cool stuff.
I was born in Mexico-City, lived there for a few years and than moved to Belgium, where I currently live. Thanks to that I'm fluent in Spanish, Dutch, English & French. I'm a sound designer/composer, concert promotor and a knife maker, check out my work here: music & knives.

As an audio engineer I’m obsessive when it comes to protecting my ears from hearing loss. I’ll never forget the first time I shot a 7×64 rifle without hearing protection. When fired, most hunting rifles will produce around 156 dBa to 175 dBa. By comparison, a jet engine taking off produces ‘only’ around 140 dBa. […]
We usually avoid mass tourism but for natural wonders we sometimes make an exception. The Antelope Canyon in Arizona seemed impressive enough to bend our own rules a bit… The town of Page has no shortage on god’s mercy. Located near Page Arizona in Navajo country the Antelope Canyon is a spectacular display of eroded sand stone […]
Running water is the ultimate luxury on any adventure trip. We have tried many different systems. First we tried US army 20 liter jerrycans: simple, very strong en reliable but far from practical. Expensive integrated water containers have the disadvantage of freezing in the winter rendering them absolutely useless. We tried water bags with & without built-in […]
Bougainville is a small group of islands north of the Solomon Islands that form an autonomous region within the country of Papua New Guinea. The region has a massively intriguing wildlife, people and history. It is a unique location comparable to very little else on our planet. Tourism has only recently slowly started to develop […]
BATTLE OF THE FRIDGES Waeco CFX 35 vs Engel MT35F. Long term review A portable cooler in your expedition vehicle makes life much more comfortable. Most important reason to get yourself a cooler must be cold beer off course.
Hunting season has finished so it’s time to review the gear we have used. We’ve been invited on driven and stalking hunts for Roebuck and did all nighters hunting for Wild Boar in Germany. Weather conditions here when hunting were mostly miserable, very cold and rainy. It’s essential to wear quality clothing or you won’t […]
Fjällräven’s Duffel No 6 is part of the numbers collection which is the premium line. Well-thought-out functionality and the use of heavy duty eco-fabrics that should last you a lifetime. So, I hauled this 50 liter bag everywhere in the last year and gave it some dirt time. It travelled with me through deserts and […]
So, you like wild camping, desert dune bashing, wildlife spotting, desolate white sandy beaches with pristine blue water and are put off by crowds of tourists? Then Oman should definitely be on your bucket list. We packed some basic camping equipment and booked a flight to Oman last November. Being one of the least populated […]
Although we try to escape citylife when we head for the forests, we mostly carry electronics. For safety reasons -your mobile phone-, or entertainment. We’ll use a GPS to point us in the right direction when we get lost. Everybody who has used a GPS knows the batteries drain quickly. Most smartphones need charging everyday. […]
