Why What if we fly?

What if you leave the Netherlands at the age of 23 without a plan?

What if you don’t have a home and a full-time job at 28?

What if you fall in love with someone on the other side of the world and decide to live there?

What if you mess up a more than after making this decision?

But what if that’s the best decision you’ve ever made?

We have both left the Netherlands behind us indefinitely. At first to start the adventure alone and find out what else there is to see and experience. In the years when we didn’t know each other, we noticed that in the Netherlands people often think negatively and there is a kind of expectation pattern.

After your studies you must immediately start a full-time job, you can’t flutter around too long and you should also start saving for the future and, above all, buy a house as soon as possible. What if you don’t have all this? Or rather, what if you don’t have that need at all?

Of course we also want a house and a family and our dream job someday. But what’s wrong with putting it off and enjoying all the world has to offer first? We both left everything behind and then ran into each other on Bondi Beach, Sydney. This is now a year ago and in the meantime we have made some nice trips and we currently live in Australia. Of course it’s not always about roses but this is the life that we want NOW and are very happy with it. The rest will come, all in good time.

With our website and accompanying Instagram page, we try to give an insight into our life in Australia and the trips we make with accompanying travel tips, of course not too serious. Hopefully this will inspire you to take life a little more with a grain of salt and especially to do what makes you happy.
