Last  year (december 2015) we visited Bagan. 

Bagan (Pagan) is a relatively small steppe area with uncountable Buddhist stupa’s and temples somewhere along the Irrawaddy River in middle Myanmar. During a time in history it was the centre of power of the ancient Pagan Empire that ruled Myanmar. These days it is the prime tourist attraction in a country that is slowly opening up its doors to the outside world. Although the tourists are taking over Bagan there are many places on the plains to solely wander around. If you don’t go to the standerd lookout points at sunrise and sunset you might find your own private lookout spot! We took the overnight bus from Yangon and stayed for a few days in the area before going on to Mandalay.

We were somewhat stuck for 7 days in Malaysia and in particular Kuala Lumpur. Below shots of that week in which we discovered KL with its skycrapers and shopping malls, Melaka and a day of shooting with the amazing Ambistionista. Enjoy! Read more

Google invited us to learn more about their new apps in the city of Brussels. On the appointed day we jumped on the Thalys and arrived fresh in the capital of our southern neighbour an hour later. Brussels is just perfect for wandering around, drinking belgium beer, eating fries and of course waffles. But it is also one of the first places where old art and new technologies meet each other. Release a photographer in Brussels with in one hand a Google phone and in the other a camera and this is what you get. Read more

They are young boys who give their lives every night to put the fair on fire. It requires no electricity or generator (only the lamps operate electrical), just a bunch of fearless chaps and passengers. First I was flabbergasted, later terrified. This wheel was bigger and higher than any we saw before. This is how they roll in Myanmar.

Old Delhi is a fascinating place. One evening we accidentally were standing still with our motorcycle in the busy traffic of Old Delhi. Wow, what a crowd! What is going on here? What are all these people doing? It took a while to get out of the traffic which gave us the opportunity to look around. We were somewhat accustomed to in India and Nepal, but what we saw here, still surprised us. The next day we returned.

Pictures say more than thousand words. That is why we like Instragram: a great way to share pictures or to discover bikers, photographers, adventurers and other talent all over the world. We have quite a few favourites, but here are some we think are definitely worth following. And don’t forget to follow us @wewantadventure!

We had just finished a three months motorbike trip and went to stay in Nepal for a few months, before embarking on a new trip. Back then, in the summer of 2014, we didn’t have much plans what to do. The trip had consumed all our savings, so we had to work. But regarding the freedom that we were looking for, we also wanted to see what would come on our path. In most cases, if you don’t plan ahead too much, just then, there will be unexpected fun things in your way.

Mandy, a professional photographer, had worked for AirBnB in the Netherlands to photograph accommodations. AirBnB is not only active in the Netherlands, but worldwide. So Mandy got the request to photograph accommodations in Nepal. This was the start of our exploration of the Kathmandu valley on our Royal Enfield for AirBnB, to capture the beautiful hidden spots we came across and listening to special stories people trusted us with so easily.
