Tantra and tattoos in Japan

2019-05-14T03:51:36+02:00

2019-05-13T04:35:58+02:00

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 [...]

‘Museum Piece’

2019-05-13T04:10:17+02:00

"Museum Piece" Late 2015 I was honoured with my own exhibition in museum Flehite in Amersfoort, The Netherlands. The temporary exhibition was about various forms of emigration. The fact that I am considered The Netherlands ‘first digital nomad’ apparently made me ‘museum-worthy’… It felt so [...]
