The Story

Plug Me In is a purpose-driven adventure with the aim to inspire, educate
and accelerate the transition to a zero carbon future.

On the 15th of March 2016 I left the Netherlands in an electric car, the Blue Bandit,
with Sydney as my destination, on the other side of the world.

I travel without money and rely on the kindness of people.
Plug Me In is based upon the collaboration between people. Anyone can contribute.
On this website you can support me by offering a meal, a place to sleep or electricity for the car.
All the offers determine the route to Sydney.

I believe everyone can contribute to a more sustainable world.
I try to do my part by showing the possibilities of sustainable mobility.

Throughout the journey, I try to engage with sustainable initiatives, companies and
organisations to 
highlight the environmental challenges in each respective country
and promote key solutions.

On April 7, 2019 I reached Sydney after being on the road for just over 3 years.
After Sydney I extented my journey to New Zealand and reached Bluff,
NZ’s most southern tip on the 19th of July. My journey is finished but this website
will still be updated.

A quest

Plug Me In is a road trip with a twist. During the electric road trip I make stops at organisations, people and companies who are active in the field of sustainability.
I want to show what the challenges in the various countries are and explore innovative solutions and ideas.

Video’s and reports about these encounters can be viewed on this website. Topics already covered are food-waste, social enterprises, sustainable mobility, nature preservations and many more.

In the playlist on the right ➡ you can find interviews with innovative thinkers,
sustainable warriors and fascinating eco-products.

Do you have a suggestion for a cool project I can visit?
Please contact me.

After my first long trip to Australia I studied Event Management at the Utrecht University
of Arts and graduated with organizing Plug Me In.
With Plug Me In I want to combine my passions for traveling, photography,
videomaking with my interests in sustainability and electric cars and start a project which is kind of…
