Having worked as a lawyer for 10 years it was time for a change. Edo bought sailing yacht Sally Lightfoot and set sail with his young family for a 5 year circumnavigation of Africa. He published a series of articles and two books on the voyage (www.rondomafrika.nl). Back ashore Edo has taken up sailing professionally; with managing and part time skippering classic sailing yacht Lady Ann (www.ladyann.nl) and with expedition vessel Long Tall Sally on the drawing boards (www.longtallsally.nl). In the mean time 4x4 overland travelling has become another passion; and yet another way of life to publish about. So travelling with his family or professionally: Edo does the writing and photographing along the way.
