World tour on bicycle
100,000 km in 7 years
for people and planet
We, Ben and Linda, are exploring the world together. XPLORid!
We left the Netherlands on June 15 2020. We will cycle through more than 80 countries. We cross oceans with a (sailing)boat or freighter.
We give direct and local aid to people. We also support nature (conservation)projects.

Our latest blog:
monthly blog and daily travel report
Every day is a new adventure. We cycle about 60 km and never know where we will stop for the night. We like to discover other cultures. That's why we knock on people’s doors at the end of the day to ask for a place to stay. In this way we meet a lot of different people.
We are often invited to stay in a guest room. If there’s no place to stay indoors, we camp in the garden. In remote areas we also sleep in our tent. In good weather we only use our mattress and a mosquito net.
Jobs fill your pocket, but
adventures fill your soul
In addition to exploring the world, we are on an inner journey of discovery. We choose experience over possession. Through our way of life, we inspire others. Every day there is a travel report on our Facebook page and Instagram account. Every month we blog about our tour. We also describe our aid projects.
€1 for each kilometer
We cannot help people in need and support nature (conservation) projects all by ourselves. We are looking for support.
For each kilometer we cycle, we raise € 1.
Your donation allows us to give local and direct help. Not by giving money, but by buying the things people need.
More information about our aid projects and how to donate can be found here.
The aid projects we’ve completed so far can be found here.
