Meet Douwe!

The people who work at Triposo all love travel. But there's only one person in our team who has been to over 100 countries and that's Douwe, one of the founders of the company. He's the guy on the left, with the funny hat on the picture below (I'm the guy on the right).


So let's ask the guy who's been to a hundred countries a few questions!

Where have you lived? Where do you call 'home'?

I grew up in the Netherlands. I lived in Switzerland, India, Australia, Germany and depending on where you draw the line between visit and living, the United States. Berlin is feeling more and more like home.

How did you catch the travel bug?
Probably infected at birth. Our parents took us everywhere: driving up and down to Turkey with a caravan right through a bunch of communist countries was their idea of a perfect summer holiday. So it seemed perfectly natural to look at how to go to India by bus after I left high school.

What is the most interesting journey you've made?
Crossing the Sahel from Senegal to Freetown in West Africa on the back of trucks in the rainy season is certainly up there.

What is your favorite beach?
Tafatafa Beach in Samoa. Nice and far away from, well, everything.

Where do you dream of travelling to?
Ethiopia is currently on top of my list.

Travel advice you've been given/learned along the way?
It's always better to go then not to. Don't let people tell you you can't go to India unless you spend 3 months there. Three days in a strange country is better than three days at home.

What do you always take when on the road?
A passport, an ATM card and a phone with Triposo on it is all you need
