Two years in the Philippines

Two years in the Philippines

In a month or two I can celebrate my ‘2 years in the Philippines’- anniversary, I love to take you back to the first months and how I’m doing now. How is it to leave all behind and move to a country you have never been to before? How it all started My son and I owned a business in the Netherlands, a coworking hub. trendy, stylish and cheap. And the maths did not added up as we thought they…

Being single for so long, it is hard to love me

Being single for so long, it is hard to love me

I read an article about being single for ever and how hard it is to love such a person and for the person to love back. It nailed my situation right on. I’m so scared of a few things: that he will leave me that he will stay that I will lose myself that we both love each other for all the wrong reasons And yet I love him, and I love me. And the discussion between my self-love and…

Drama Queen on Recess, lessons learned in solitude

I’m a drama queen. I love drama, if there is non I create some. I need a thrill in my life and since I hate bungee jumping, sky diving and other extreem sports I get that thrill from drama.

Maybe that I can take care of myself…

Nomads and friendship, love and sex

Nomads and friendship, love and sex

I’ve written articles about the nomad lifestyle. Why you should or should not start a life like mine. The pro’s and con’s of being always on the move and living out of a suitcase. I think for me the hardest one is the ‘always being a stranger’ and ‘no one committing to you because you leave anyway’ is the hardest parts of a nomadic life. I’m not a 24 year old backpacker fucking my way across the planet, in no…

Transferring Revisited

Transferring Revisited

Remember this blog post? Well, a lot has happened since. And I guess we all dream. I did, daydreaming, a lot of it actually. So picture this: me on a house hunt on the beautiful Island of Siquijor, for the first time in, maybe over 6 years seriously head over heals, falling in love with a guy that was pursuing me. And falling out of love just as fast, because he backed out just as fast after he told me he…
