Born in 1978, I grew up as a high-sensitive girl in the countryside of in the North of the Netherlands, where I enjoyed a childhood with lots of outdoor life. I was a shy girl who often stared into the distance being in her own world.
In puberty I overcame this shyness and after high school I chose to study Social Psychology: I just loved people and all human behavior fascinated me.
Soon after finishing university, I discovered a second passion: travelling. During a nine-month backpack journey I fell in love with Latin America and once I was back in the Netherlands, I became a tour guide, so I never had to stop exploring the world.
I have seen and experienced beautiful places all over the world and continue to do so, but now in a different form.
Since the first of May 2017 I no longer have a permanent home; I am now living my life as a so-called digital nomad. I call my new lifestyle “intuitive traveling”, trying to follow my heart that tells me each moment where in the world I need to be, to live and enjoy my life for a certain amount of time. I started this intuitive journey with living in Bali for six months in May 2017, after that Holland again and then? I hope Hawaii will be my next destination.
