Are you destined to do something else with your life? I knew I was!
When I was young I dreamed of travelling, but we didn’t have money to travel, so I fantasized about it. White sandy beaches, palm trees, hammocks, coconut drinks and sunny weather. I knew that one day I would make this happen. And I did!
It took a while before I was ready, because it is not that easy (and scary) to make a life changing decision like this. I mean, having a steady job, a mortgage, all my friends and family here. But in 2018 everything slowly started falling into place. I sold my house, quite my job, and got full support from my family and friends to go on this adventure. In the meantime my partner and I saved some money and on April 1st 2019 we flew out to our big adventure!
Between April 2019 and January 2020 we visited several countries like, Spain, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, and then … Covid-19 hit! There we were, stuck in Borneo and nowhere to go. How did we manage? We got creative with our travels. First we went back to Europe, to be closer to our family. Just in case.. Because we didn’t know what was going to happen. We spent some time in Italy, Spain, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, and currently North Macedonia. It is important to be able to adjust to unexpected situations. As soon as the pandemic calms down, we will be back on the road!
