The journey takes place in two periods of 8 months. The planned route of the first stage can be seen on the map above. It runs from the Netherlands via south and east Europe to Turkey, then to the Caucasus and the Middle East, and via Egypt, along the east side of Africa to Cape Town. There the car goes on the boat to South America for the start of the second leg. Anything can happen along the way, so we can’t predict the exact route in advance. But, you can follow the Orange Dragon from day to day on the homepage.
Themes and projects
A lot is happening in the world, in all kinds of areas. And, while we are there anyway, we are happy to bring you some reports! During the trip, we will focus on four themes: sustainability, social justice, world music and strong women. Along the way, we will actively look for projects, initiatives and people who are active in one (or more) of these four areas. We’ll create blogs and vlogs so that we can share all the great stories with you, our supporters, and with the rest of the world. You can follow the stories via our channel on youtube and on the blog. You can find short messages, announcements and summaries, as well as an ongoing travelogue and updates from the foundation on the homepage, or on our social media channels and in the newsletter.
Travel with the Orange Dragon
Would you like to travel with the Orange Dragon for a while? You can!
Especially if you have a good idea about a project that you would like to visit together with the Orange Dragon. You’ll meet the Orange Dragon on the way and together we will travel to the project and tell it’s story. You arrange your own journey to and from the location and collect a minimum of 500 euro in donations in advance in your own network for our goal: research into ovarian cancer.
