Service Announcement

Dear fans of the.ego.tripper, I have a few announcements to make:

1. You all have awesome taste in travel blogs, I must say!
2. Today is the last day you can vote for the.ego.tripper in the Belgian Blog Awards. Thank you if you’ve already done this. If you haven’t yet, I know it’s because you don’t speak Dutch or French. I encourage you to seek professional guidance in order to learn either language. But for the time being, I will translate the page where you have to fill out your name: voornaam=name, naam=surname, straat=street, nummer=number, postcode=zip code, woonplaats=city, e-mailadres=email address. I’m sure you tell yourself Dutch isn’t that hard at all, but don’t get fooled by the rocks that I’ve got, I’m still Jenny from the block. Sorry, I don’t know how my favorite music lyrics got in there.
3. You should all become Facebook fans of the.ego.tripper and/or follow the.ego.tripper on twitter. You know why? Because there is the same level of awesomeness on these social networks, plus extras (like the social aspect among other things). In the near future I might start handing out travel gadgets and goodies (like my marihuana covered umbrella from Amsterdam or the signed copy of Inheritance) to the biggest fans. Of course I’m not gonna ship them to the US or Australia, but you can pick up your possible winnings at my place. I don’t have coffee though, so don’t overstay your welcome.
4. Again, you are the best. And you are beautiful, no matter what they say. Damn, again those brilliant lyrics.
5. Come again!
6. I know, how funny is that drunk octopus.


  1. Besides the fact that I’m now humming ‘jenny from the block’ all the way to Ghent I just wanted to say: WHUUUUUUUT??? A signed copy??
    I think your biggest fan is me now. Promised 🙂
    I voted. Because yes, we can! (and because you make me want to go back to Thailand).

    1. Thanks, Miek! Humming Jenny from the Block is my favorite pastime, I must admit. And to answer your question: yes, a signed copy! But if I’m not mistaken, you’re not a facebook fan yet. How are you planning to win this book then? Female charm? That doesn’t work on the.ego.tripper! (no, that’s a lie)

  2. Hi and thank you for visiting my site, this is the first post of yours I clicked on because the drunk octopus has MADE MY DAY, brilliant! I may have to do this in my own home one day 😀 Looking forward to seeing more of your blog
