Is 'home' a location or a feeling? Inspiration shot April 2019 Whenever I hear "home is where the heart is", I joke that "home is where the wifi is."  'Home' is more of a feeling than a certain place for me. What does home mean for [...]

Look at the world through somebody else’s filter – Inspiration Shot March 2019

2019-07-21T04:27:04+02:00

If you and I walk down the same street, we will see different things. There are lots of details and we make different analyses and come to our own conclusions. That’s why I like social media so much: when someone posts authentic things, those posts reflect how that person sees the world.

Financial freedom – Inspiration Shot February 2019

2019-07-21T04:26:28+02:00

Do you need to make money before you can be free and follow your passion? Or is it better to actually turn what you are passionate about into something profitable to achieve that freedom? It’s a chicken and egg dilemma. I have always been a huge believer in doing what you are passionate about – because that doesn’t feel like work. But to be honest, I notice that many people experience financial worries that may take away some of the pleasure.

Every time my plane is about to land on this island in the Dutch Caribbean, my heart makes a little jump. For more than 2 decades I’ve had a love-hate relationship with this special island, but in the end, the love always seems to win. No matter how sure I was that I never wanted to go back, as soon as the airplane doors open, the warm, humid wind embraces me and I know I am home.

Buenos Aires 2018 / 2019

2019-05-13T04:53:39+02:00

Imagine a time machine transporting you back to the nineties. Buenos Aires feels like a mix of Italy, Spain and France in that era. Decades-old cars (meticulously maintained) in the tree-lined streets, no electric cars or other signs of ‘modern’ technology in the cobblestoned streets.

Sustainable travel?

2019-05-14T03:50:40+02:00

What I thought was just a ‘fun’ infographic of my flights in the past 10 years generated by the KLM app, turned out to cause quite some discussion about flying, CO2 and compensation. Never before has a post of mine generated over 35.000 views (!). The discussion was not [...]
