At a point of crisis, Aukje decided to change her life. She quit her office job, in search of an adventure. Together with her new partner, she cycled from Tanzania, through Africa and the Middle East, to the Netherlands, her home. The travel companions only just met, and faced heavy challenges on the road and within their relationship. They totally rely on each other, travel with minimal means, and experience the most bizarre and beautiful things.
About her experiences, Aukje wrote a book.
