Since I was young, I have had a love-hate relationship with water. On one hand I loved playing in the pool, pretending I was a mermaid, on the other hand I got fearful as soon as the water got deeper. There is something about that sensation of not being able to touch the ground, and … Continue reading Just keep swimming
This post is about my experiences with crypto, the many mistakes I made and how I hope to earn some passive income with it in the future. My first introduction to cryptocurrencies was in 2017. Someone we knew made a lot of money with Bitcoin, so we got curious as well. Paul got a tip … Continue reading Crypto – The future or a big bubble?
It’s time for another update! It’s going to be a short one. We have been vegetarian now for almost 4 months. That doesn’t sound long, but it feels a lot longer. I have to say that it does become easier over time. Where a couple of months ago I had some serious cravings for chicken, … Continue reading Our journey on becoming a vegetarian – Part 4
As you know, we’ve been trying to adopt a vegetarian lifestyle. Today I want to share our experiences with meat substitutes.

It was nice for a while, but we also realized we are not in our 20’s anymore and we enjoy a bit of comfort and quietness! So later that year we … Continue reading A place we call home
When we first started our journey as travelers, we didn’t really have a plan. Just travel and work, just go with the flow, but Covid-19 changed everything. Traveling during Covid-19 has brought all sorts of challenges we never thought of. Here is my top 3 of the challenges we faced: Challenge number 1: Traveling itself … Continue reading Our top 3 challenges during Covid-19
Over a month in, and we are doing surprisingly well! I haven’t thought about meat or missed it at all. I never really cared for fish, so I knew that one was easy! I expected Paul to struggle a bit more (he really loves bacon and fish), but he is also doing very well. I … Continue reading My journey on becoming a vegetarian – Part 2
A smile can say a thousand words! I always loved to smile, but I noticed that the last couple of years I started to ‘pose’ my smiles. On almost every picture I took in the last 2 - 3 years, I have the same posed smile. As almost every person, I have my insecurities, but … Continue reading A beautiful smile
The first time that I went to Malaysia was in 2009 and I fell in love with the country! I loved the people, nature, and the food, although back then I wasn’t very adventurous when it came to trying different foods. Luckily that changed as I got older, because if there’s one place in the … Continue reading Malaysia: Food heaven!
