Welcome! At the time of writing I am enjoying the Mediterranean life in Florence with my hubby. Him being American, me being Dutch, my translation work being completely online and his work partly being in Asia, we travel the continents.
We have a base in Rotterdam (Netherlands) and Vegas (US) and some common dreams: to start a small B&B in Italy/Tuscany and go on camping trips in a camper van. With our new FJ Cruiser we will hopefully soon fulfill one of my bucket list items: go on a one or two-month trip and travel through the US/Canada to Alaska ?
To travel and/or settle down
How do digital nomads combine their travels with settling down? Turns out that the majority stays in the same place from about 1 to 3 months. That sounds like settling down and enjoying daily routines & at the same time not having to give up travel.
Stay warm and cozy while camping ☃️?
If you’re planning a camping trip in cold areas and -like me- are not build for cold anything, make sure you come prepared. Really, preparation is the key. It’ll keep you warm and comfy and it’ll give you a much better travel experience. In the end of time, there’s nothing worse than being cold – if you’d ask me.
Smoky Mountains and Gaitlinburg
We spent two days in the Great Smoky Mountains (that got their name from the blueish smoky haze that’s always hanging over them) and Gaitlinburg, a cozy mountain village with a true Christmassy vibe during the winter season. Extra: A quick stop at the Natural Bridge in Virginia.
New Orleans & beignets
Yes, beignets even had to be in the title. Not Bourbon Street, or the fact that jazz was born here, or voodoo, or that it’s the place where Mardi Gras is held. No, beignets.
