We Want Adventure is a project by Pieter and Mandy. Early 2014 we quit our jobs and left our home in the Netherlands for a life of adventure and new opportunities.

We bought two motorcycles and went on a road trip to Mongolia. We crossed 16 countries in three months. We called this photography project We Want Adventure. It was an amazing adventure and also the start of a new life for us. We wouldn’t go back to our old lives in the Netherlands after completing our road trip to Mongolia. No, this road trip would mark the beginning of a new life: the life abroad that we had been dreaming of for a long time.

After our motor adventure, we traveled to Nepal where we lived and worked for almost a year. During that year we also made two trips to India, exploring Northern India on a Royal Enfield Bullet motorbike.

We Want Adventure is not a one-time project or a simple holiday. It’s about taking on new challenges and experiencing new adventures, while capturing those experiences through the lens and showing them to the world. Our goal is to take travelling to the next level.
