This Is The Life, part one

A brief encounter with the Aussie life, camp site style:

Saturday 2 Jan – We arrive in Cairns and my first instinct is that everything is off. Well, not off, but uncomfortable. It’s hot and clammy and everything is new. After an easygoing family week in Bateman’s Bay, the upcoming camping life seems daunting. Cairns actually looks like Jurassic World. Like raptors could dash out of the bushes at any second.
My brother and I find our campervan and he drives it to our airbnb for the first night – I was too nervous. Driving on the left, man! The house is in a quiet street, there’s no one home. We duck under lushious plant life and find there’s a guy living in the apartment. It’s uncomfortable. He doesn’t seem to realize we are coming. I treat the place like a student accommodation.
After lunch we meet with Bec, and it’s so fun to see her in her natural habitat! I understand now, why she always thought it so cold during our UK year. We see fancy and less fancy beaches and of course they are all like post cards. Palm trees, bright colours and nets against jellyfish.READ MORE

TIPS FOR 20SOME’S: CREATE A WORK EXPERIENCE (TwentySomeTraveller)

So, while you’re busy not knowing what to do with your life, try doing that some place else. It might offer some perspective.

Last March (2013) I went to Los Angeles for a month. I had just graduated, it was a super cold winter and I wanted to experience a new (and warmer) environment. Also, I craved to see whether all stereotypes concerning L.A. were true..READ MORE

World Wide Opportunities On Hippie Farms (SoftSandyBeaches)

Vorige zomer kwam een vriendin met de mededeling dat ze ging ‘Woefen’ in Zweden, een ervaring die mij vooral bizar leek. Woefen? Wat? Het bleek te gaan om Wwoof, World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. Vanwege mijn enthousiasme kwam ik hier pas een maandje geleden achter. Vorige zomer vond ik haar idee vooral vaag.

“Wat ga je dan doen?” vroeg ik.

“Gewoon, bij mensen in de tuin werken,” zei ze.

Het klonk intiem. Ik snapte niet zo goed waarom een gezin zomaar iemand zou laten invliegen vanuit Nederland om bij hen ‘in de tuin’ te werken.READ MORE

Een lesje Wwoof-lifestyle (SoftSandyBeaches)

Dit is het nare van reizen: de maand nadat je terug bent gekomen sijpelen de herinneringen langzaam weg uit je hoofd. Je weet het nog wel, die fijne middagen in de hangmat en de vele pastei de nata’s die je at, maar echt tastbaar is het niet meer.

Het was gewoon echt een totaal andere wereld. Het spookt door mijn hoofd terwijl ik door mijn Portugal fotomap blader. Het was er een wereld van stilte en van liefde, van verse sinaasappels plukken uit de boom en van buiten douchen in je nakie. Mijn Wwoof ervaring.READ MORE

Capetown Conversations (TwentySomeTraveller)

Floating high above my holiday wish list is Cape Town, South Africa. This has grown more urgent in the past few years due to an increasing amount of friends on Facebook visiting the city, for travel but also for living and working there. I saw the pictures, read the amazing stories and felt like this city built itself up almost unrealistically in my mind. The nature, the food, the sun, the sea, the fun language and the immense diversity of culture and people. I’ve been trying to go, to find a way to go, each year for a couple of years now but it always fails.

Whenever I talked to my boyfriend about this matter, he would flinch and call Cape Town the city “where most tourists are murdered”. I am too naïve to believe this sort of talk and frankly, I don’t want to be scared to go anywhere – cause anything can happen at any time and I don’t want to feel like I have to live in fear somewhere. Lots of girls my age went to and returned from Cape Town. Last week I had a conversation about this with a friend of mine who spent a few months in the city, as I shared my idea of working on an organic farm there (Wwoof – more about this later). Her face changed a little and she replied she didn’t quite know if that would be a good idea.READ MORE

Ijsland in januari (Orange Stars)

IJsland in januari:
Winterse taferelen onder het Noorderlicht

Weggestopt in het uiterst noordelijke hoekje van Europa, lijkt IJsland nou niet dé vakantiebestemming bij uitstek. Het land van de folklore, gletsjers en walvissen trekt echter steeds meer bezoekers. Hieronder volgen een aantal tips voor een winters tripje.READ MORE

Noise

I think I haven’t been completely honest with my own feelings and it’s hard to write this down. Come to think of it, I think I’ve not let myself have any personal feelings for the past half year or so. Everything was clouded with expectations, and most of all, fixing the world.

Now, that is an interesting ideal, fixing the world, and I’m not in any case speaking against it. However, it’s very easy to float off to some muddy shore, someplace you don’t know very well, to do some making-the-world-a-better-place there. Whenever I’m on a fixing spree, I’m focused on everything but my personal feelings. I’m not even focused on someone else’s feelings so much, as to me, the truth has little to do with being kind, and a lot with being forward. I’m the one you go to when everyone says it doesn’t matter what you do, to tell you straight up, it does. And quit messing around. Yeah.READ MORE
