We are a 60+ couple who love to travel. Margriet is the author of over 30 books for children. Kees recently retired after working as Park Ranger and Parks Manager most of his life. We have lived in The Netherlands, in Oregon, California, the Yukon, BC and Alberta. Now we live on Salt Spring Island BC where we run a B & B (http://www.betweenthecoversbandb.com).
While traveling we love to hike, work as volunteers in schools and with literacy related projects. Best of all – we share some of our adventures with our two grandsons! We like budget travel and adventure, planning most of our trips ourselves. We include links as we go: from North America to Europe to Asia, Africa and more. Our goal in sharing our adventures is to encourage you to embrace an active, outdoor life style in which you can help and support locals.
If we can do it, you can do. So.. just do it!
