Locate Cavey - Antwerp

Where is Cavey?

This weekend our trouble making travel mascot Pinkie the Cavey is in Antwerp in Belgium. He managed to reach Antwerp by hitchhiking from Ghent and he succeeded to get a lift only after 20 minutes of holding a sign, we must try again for the next trip if it can be so easy.

He loved the modern architecture and the bright colour of the Museum aan de Stroom that in Dutch means Museum on the stream. MAS is a relatively new museum in Antwerp, in fact is only 3 years old. Pinkie regrets not going up to the terrace of the museum from where you can get a lovely view of Antwerp and it’s for free too, but unfortunately he didn’t have the time. Next time perhaps!

What is Cavey?

There are many other Caveys, but this particular one (nicknamed ‘Pinkie’) travels along with Dale & Franca whilst they backpack & travel their way around Europe, Central & South East Asia and more. He simply jumped into Dale’s backpack with no intention to leave, he wants to see the world too.

What does Cavey like?

The more we travel the more Pinkie misses having a little place all for himself that he can just use as a base and do whatever he likes. He’d love to have a garden hanging pod one day when and if we stop somewhere, he absolutely adores these seats. We must find a place with a garden first or simply find an housesitting assignment somewhere that has one as a temporary remedy for Pinkie’s desire to have one.

Where would Cavey like to travel next?

Pinkie would love to visit Latvia at some point, especially the city of Liepaja to visit the famous Karosta Prison. He likes its soviet architecture and look, it is such an austere structure, solid and from which no one has ever managed to escape, that we know. That’s somewhere that certainly interests us too Pinkie, we’ll see what we can do to take you there, perhaps during the summer when it isn’t freezing cold.

Who knows where Pinkie the Cavey will be in the next LOCATE CAVEY.

Ciao for now,

Pinkie, Dale & Franca.
