First I hated making the bed – now I wouldn’t want to miss it

Our house is tiny. Our living room is our bed room, and vice versa. After waking up one of the first things we do is folding back the extra mattress that we use, and make the bed into a little couch again. Some woollen blankets thrown on top of it and hey – all tidy […]

Thoughts on my struggle with wanting to document almost everything

My phone’s battery is dead. When I left the van it was about ninety percent full, but then I listened to one of the most important matches of Jeroen’s favourite football club. They were about to become the national league’s champion and Jeroen had even decided to fly to the Netherlands to be part of […]

Do what you love and love what you do

Doing only really nice things, really won’t make you feel that happy as you’d expect. Personally, I think it’s better […]

Our very first seven vlogs

Life no longer scares me

It no longer scares me. Not living this way nor life itself. I am used to it all, now. That change happened not even so long ago. Until about a few weeks ago I could still think about how strange it all is, what we’re doing. Not that I think it’s ridiculous, but you have […]

Van life, dog life

Why is it so hard to finally use my creativity now that I can?

I’m in a difficult place right now. I can’t recall ever having been so disappointed by myself than I am now. The thing I am most upset about is that I have the time and the opportunity to do everything I wanted to do before, when I thought I couldn’t, but I still don’t. And […]
