About the Traveltomtom

Born in The Netherlands a long time ago I grew up in the South of Holland, just a couple kilometers from the German border as well as a couple kilometers from the Belgium border. Considerably close to a couple borders, you can say I have been spoon-fed with different cultures, different languages and crossing borders.

In 2006 I made my first big move as I decided to travel overseas and live for 6 months on the lovely Caribbean island of Aruba. Here a different lifestyle inspired me! Local people showed me that life was more than our society is teaching us. Getting a degree, finding a nice job, making career and being successful is something most people pursue, but I found out that this was not my thing.

Exploring the world, making new friends, discover new places and meeting people from all over the globe was making me happy. Then why should I be sitting behind a desk, seeing the same people over and over in my daily life?
