Dreaming about location independence

Wouter Travel, Work 11 Comments

Everyone who knows me, knows that I have been travelling a lot since I became 30. In those 6 years I have made an intercontinental trip at least once per year. And after every trip the feeling gets stronger that I want to travel even more. I try to make every trip as long as possible, but I only have 5 weeks of paid holiday per year and from time to time I need smaller breaks from work as well. …

So…. it’s been more then a year since I last posted on my blog. Shame on me! In that previous post I wrote about our trip to Thailand in November 2010. What have I been doing since then?

Burning Man is blijkbaar een ‘hippie’-achtig festival in het midden van de Black Rock woestijn in Nevada. Duizenden mensen creëren er een week lang hun eigen Mad Max-achtige wereld met enorme kunstobjecten, muziek, naakte mensen en ruilhandel.

Ik schrik er zelf van dat het al van mei geleden is dat ik hier een blogpost schreef over mijn nieuwe appartement. Ondertussen zijn de werken wel gevorderd, maar het had toch wel wat sneller mogen gaan.
