The Story

Since March 15, 2016 I am traveling from the
Netherlands to Australia in an electric car.

I travel without money and share energy to reach the destination.

On this website you can ‘Plug Me In’ with a meal, a place to sleep or
a plug to charge the car. Together all the offers will decide the route
of the journey.

By driving from the Netherlands to the other side of the world
in an electric car I am trying to proof that EV’s are suitable for daily needs.

In all the countries I pass by I make stops to talk with people and
organisations about the challenges and opportunities within the field
of sustainability.

A quest

Plug Me In is a road trip with a twist. During the electric road trip I make stops at organisations, people and companies who are active in the field of sustainability.
I want to show what the challenges in the various countries are and explore innovative solutions and ideas.

Video’s and reports about these encounters can be viewed on this website. Topics already covered are food-waste, social enterprises, sustainable mobility, nature preservations and many more.

In the playlist on the right ➡ you can find interviews with innovative thinkers,
sustainable warriors and fascinating eco-products.

Do you have a suggestion for a cool project I can visit?
Please contact me.

My name is Wiebe Wakker and I have a huge passion for traveling. I’ve been in Australia
for a year and wandered through Asia for a few months.
After my first long trip to Australia I studied Event Management at the Utrecht University
of Arts and graduated with organizing Plug Me In.
With Plug Me In I want to combine my passions for traveling, photography,
videomaking with my interests in sustainability and electric cars and start a project which is kind of…

through blogposts, vlogs, videos and pictures.
