Freedom

“The secret to happiness is freedom, and the secret to freedom is courage…”

Freedom seems to have become a status symbol: more valued than money. For me freedom means choices; to do what I want, where I want, with whom I choose.
Whether you want to escape the 9-5, become location independent or just want more time, more space and less hassle; let me help and inspire you.

Is digital nomad life for you?

2018-10-21T12:37:10+00:00

4 important considerations. I have been traveling for the past 30 years, even before it was popular and digital… First as a backpacker and later as a speaker and writer I have visited more than 100 countries. I help other entrepreneurs adapt to the location independent lifestyle, for example [...]

CONFESSION: I am not a digital nomad, I am a LIE!

2018-10-19T14:19:59+00:00

Not everybody will like what I have to say in this blog. I am going to be very honest. Magazines call me the first and/or most famous ‘digital nomad’ of The Netherlands. But I have doubts about whether that is a compliment. The term ‘digital nomad’ has become very [...]

How to replace a lost drivers license when you are not registered? For the first time in 5 years of living without registration, 'the system' now really has me checkmate; I cannot replace my lost drivers license. After losing my handbag and wallet, I managed to renew my bank [...]

How to get cheap, worldwide health insurance at IKEA

2018-04-17T04:55:34+00:00

In 2013 I was ‘fired’ from my country for traveling too much… Because I wasn’t registered in The Netherlands anymore, I lost my right to the Dutch compulsory health insurance. Expat insurance would not cover me, because I was not living in any other specific country. For months I [...]

How to register as a resident in Mallorca

2018-04-17T04:59:50+00:00

I get a lot of questions about both registration as a resident in Spain and the cheap health insurance offered by IKEA family in Mallorca.

We all know these pictures of bronzed, smiling nomads with their laptop and a cocktail on the beach. Sorry to burst your bubble, but being a digital nomad isn’t all that idyllic. But hey, don’t even think about bringing your laptop to the beach! Sand will get in your [...]

Cruising back to my roots

2018-01-04T21:35:06+00:00

After working as a hostess on a cruise ship for a season when I was in my twenties, my only cruising experiences were the ‘cruise your business’ workshops I recently organized on repositioning cruises. Entrepreneurs, nomads, young people: workshops, masterminds, parties; a fun way to cross the ocean. But [...]

A day in the life of a digital nomad…

2017-04-25T10:12:30+00:00

Many people ask me what a typical day looks like. The funny thing is: there is no such thing as ‘a typical day’ when you live a life like a free spirit. Every day is different. Nothing ever repeats or becomes routine. Locations change, I meet different people, I [...]
