Why should you stick around?

♦ I’m often on the move, exploring this beautiful planet. Expect travel tips, recommendations, and honest insights. 

♦ Being a digital nomad is more than just ticking countries off a list. It’s a lifestyle choice that allows me to work less, spend more time with my loved ones, and pursue my passions. I’m here to show you that there’s more to life than the daily grind and to help you explore the possibilities of remote work.

♦ I’m a firm believer in the power of storytelling. Through my blog, I aim to inspire you to step out of your comfort zone, chase your dreams, and do what you truly want. Whether it’s working less and spending quality time with family, globe-trotting, or pursuing a passion, I hope to provide that much-needed dose of motivation.

If you are curious, here is a bit more about my story:

A few years ago, I made the decision to leave my corporate life behind and embark on a life-changing journey around the world. Growing up, I had a lovely childhood in Germany and Belgium, and after completing my studies, I began my career in the financial sector in Luxembourg. However, after six long years, I realized that I craved something more.

I never really had the travel bug before, but somehow knew I wanted to break out of my routine and experience something different. So, I took a leap of faith and left my conventional job to set off on a journey of self-discovery. As I traveled, I discovered a love for the freedom of the road and started freelancing online to pay my way. 

But over time, I discovered that I actually enjoyed working remotely and decided to try making a living out of it. My goal for 2022 was to become a digital nomad, and in 2023, I am focused on growing my remote career.

My life may look like a dream to some – lounging on the beach with a mojito or exploring new places with a smile. But behind the scenes, there have also been a lot of challenges, tears and uncertainty. I’ve come to realize that the choices we make, whether big or small, shape our path. It’s crucial to align these choices with our priorities and values in order to take control of our lives. We all have the power to shape our own lives and create the reality we want.Yet, so often we hear people say “You’re so lucky”, as if happiness and success are handed to us rather than actively created by us. It’s not always easy, but it’s ultimately worth the effort.
