A No-Nonsense Island to Love.

These past weeks we are working on what will become our new home. Days consist of digging and shovelling rocks, but with many breaks, as the Mediterranean sun shines powerfully this time of year and it makes it all really, really sweaty.  Although I don’t know the island well yet, Mallorca is a place to…

Onrecht om van te janken. {Dutch}

“I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.” ~ Audre Lorde  Nog krap een week en we komen aan bij de langste dag van het jaar. Er valt bar weinig…

This Way Of Life.

We live in a tiny home on wheels. Energy to charge our devices is generated by the sun. All our water is harvested from the rain that falls on the roof. We warm ourselves by the fire of a rocket stove. We don’t eat animals. We have bad WiFi. It may sound drastically and extreme.…

Magical Owl.

Yesterday, the first day of December, felt quite unreal to me. Firstly, because it’s the last month of 2019 before another year (and decade!) will start, a year with some big changes ahead, both at an individual and a collective level.

I prefer to see the good in perhaps not the best experiences and in people who have shown their true colors.

Ups and Downs.

Somehow the last weeks are intense. I’m tired and could sleep all day. I know a large part has to do with the scorching heat in July and August, the constant sweating which is exhausting. I should know by now after five summers on Ibiza that my energy levels drop tremendously, but I always seem…

A Sustainable Message From Paradise.

Almost everyone has experience with a person, co-worker, manager etc. who takes every opportunity to tell how busy he or she is, complains about it all the time, repeating the same over and over again, talks a lot (while in that time he or she could have done another task of the never ending list)…

Less is More. Why tiny house life is the future.

I love watching these videos on youtube: Living Big In A Tiny House. The tiny homes are amazing and it’s fun to hear the stories behind them. It has been a while now, but some months ago we spent our sunday nights watching these inspiring videos and stories for hours in a row. I guess…

It’s time to say: bye bye plastic egos!

Yesterday I have been to a beach clean initiated by an English DJ called Blondish who uses her fame to raise awareness about the huge plastic pollution which we are facing everywhere with her “Bye Bye Plastic Life” project. It took place during the International Music Summit, a-three-day electronic music conference on Ibiza where famous house and techno DJ’s, such as Nicole Moudaber and Adam Beyer (Awakenings!), and clubs come together to discuss issues and developments in the industry.
