About Leaving Holland Blog

Leaving Holland is a website for people that want to cross borders. Physical borders, by moving to another country, and personal borders in following their dreams and therefore sometimes stepping outside their comfort zone.

The website comes in 2 languages, English and Dutch, with the emphasise on Dutch. Therefor on the front page, you will see articles mixed in both languages. But all the main features and structure-text on the website is in English. To serve you better you can pick your language at the top of the front page.

Topics covered on Leaving Holland are:

  • Living in the Philippines, the Netherlands, Spain, Mexico, to name a few
  • Living a nomadic lifestyle, working online and travelling
  • Living and moving abroad and how to prepare
  • Cost of living in different countries
  • Visa rules and application for the countries I have visited
