Welcome to our life on (and off) the road!

Retired and with our family spread around the world, we decided to get out of here and hit the road to see a bit more of this amazing planet! Feel free to browse our photos and videos, read our stories and follow us on our travels.

Truck with a view explains itself. We got ourselves a truck and – starting in Africa – will be exploring the amazing vistas of this continent and then … who knows … as per Stefaan’s favorite expression: “depending where the wind blows us”.

We want to drive to places that leave us awestruck, walk between trees and up mountains and sip a glass of wine in utter silence when the sun goes down on untamed wilderness, endless ocean or desolate desert. We want to discover the grandeur of our natural environment – on wheels and on foot. We are privileged to be able to do this and we want to make the most of it for as long as we can.

We’ll share with you that what we enjoy most: the amazing magnitude and beauty of our planet. Hailing from Belgium but having lived in South Africa for almost 40 years has made us fall in love with the vast plains and endless horizons. We’ll also throw in some practical info and advice. We have learnt so much from other travellers, that we want to pay it forward and, in turn, share what we learn and experience along the way, so that you too can go and enjoy the great outdoors.

Why Truck with a view?

Finally … this is Trokkie: our new home on wheels. Eventually- after unexpected delays due to Covid19- on 1 September 2020 we left the suburbs behind and hit the road. Let’s see where our road trip will take us.
