It can’t be said often enough: thank you so much for visiting. If you’re as curious about life as I am, you are just where you need to be. Life is a miracle and I’m here to remind you that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. On my blog and in my upcoming books you will find inspiration and have a few laughs as you read about travel, business and health, among many other things.
Here’s the short version
You’re still reading? Hmm, I guess I’ll tell a little about myself, then. I spent the first 25 years of my life in the Netherlands, interspersed with a year backpacking in Australia when I was 19. I studied Tourism Management but never managed any tourists (let alone a destination). During a hitchhiking trip I fell in love with a Spanish girl, who has been with me ever since. I have lived in the United Kingdom, Spain, Thailand and Solomon Islands.
Hobbies, you wonder? I’ve just discovered beach tennis and I’d really like to improve my boogie woogie piano skills. Good food is another one of my weaknesses. Does travel count too?
Classic chicken-and-egg situation: did I become a freelance writer because of my travels or do I travel because writing allows me to work from anywhere? As I write these words, I’m on the Canary Islands, but I might just be in your town when you read this. I actually considered The Anywhere Man as a name for this blog, but didn’t want to limit myself to travel writing.
What I’m working on
I’ve spent most of 2015 working on my first book together with author and speaker Esther Jacobs. The guide is titled Digital Nomads: How to Live, Work and Play Around the World. With a foreword written by best-selling author Chris Guillebeau, this book is a must-have if you are . Get your PDF copy here, or wait a few more days for the paperback.
For 2016, I’m working on books in the travel, self-development and business niches. If you’d like me to keep you in the loop on these projects, like my Facebook page.
