the biggest rats ever.

‘dear mummy, we have made good progress across the indian ocean, towards batavia. we were gunning along at great speed when we suddenly came across this inconveniently located landmass where we are expected to look for our wayward colleagues – no sign of them yet. we tried to see if we could strike up trading…

continuous improvement enlightenment.

i believe the car, the caravan and i have now attained the highest possible level of continuous improvement awareness: we no longer need to strive, plan, adjust or even communicate … improvement just happens naturally, but itself, and of course (you guessed it): continuously. let me give you an example: yesterday i dropped the car…

thought bubbles

… are just that: things i think about. this is often triggered by something i read or a challenge i face. it would be nice to discuss these ideas but since we are on the road there are not that many people around i can discuss these with. but if you feel up to it…

are followers sheep?

i currently read a lot about leadership – again. it has been a topic i have read and thought about a lot over the years, maybe because i really struggled to become a better (deliberately avoiding the word ‘good’) leader throughout my career. one of the text books i am currently going through uses the…

corporate or income tax cuts?

there is much talk about the corporate tax cuts the government is trying to get through the senate. apparently companies need to pay less tax to stay competitive, or rather: australia needs to ask companies for a smaller contribution to the common purse in order to attract or retain investment. i find this perplexing: in…

my perspective.

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog my perspective. I write weekly about what happened in (of course) my perspective. Some times I have little bumps but I always try to smoothen them. These photos are me in my workspace in Thorny our campervan. Hope you like what I write and please leave a comment…

my hamelin bay

Dear readers, We were in a new and clean bush camp between Augusta and Margaret River. We have been to a big cave called Mammoth cave. Margret river was full of…   … art and coffee shops (good ones). We saw things that will make you say ‘mind blown’. We saw Karri trees, Tingle trees and Jarrah…

tinker tinker little car.

i admit this is a bit lame, but just go with it, ok? kris is already joking about how i constantly ‘improve’ the car and the caravan. and i admit that just enjoying both is not even half as exciting as thinking up ways to make them work better. or be more reliable. or whatever.…

capacity upgrade.

can’t leave well enough alone? that pretty much describes me. but why would i when the benefits are obvious, right? the most important aspect here is battery capacity, or rather: do we have enough? we like to camp off-grid but we don’t like to be without our gadgets: phones, tables, computers, cameras and the drone,…

giants.

somewhere around denmark the vegetation changes. in most places on the south coast you’ll find mostly bushes and smaller trees; quite often these are bent down by the wind. the beaches are still fantastic around here, with colourful granite boulders, like elephant rocks below, just west of denmark. a few kilometers down the road everything…
