Lola

Meet Lola… a lovely young seagull who was part of our family for a few days. During a walk we found her along the seaside, struggling with the waves, totally exhausted. We picked her up and did some checks to find out what was wrong. Her wings seemed fine, but she was out of balance and very weak. So we gave her time and space to recover. We build her a nest, the girls cuddled her a lot, she eats dog food, pooped a lot (also on your lap) and wiggles around… Read More

Thank you!

It is lovely to experience what our request for help in the form of money brings. To ourselves. To others. It was overwhelming to experience unconditional support from many of you. Just to receive. Because the need was felt. It resonated. Gratitude and love flow into our hearts. We wish everyone this experience. Living in a world of duality means that there were also reactions with a critical note. We feel gratitude for this too. It gave us the opportunity to see what lives in us. We have felt what it did… Read More

Financial worries

Financial worries are the last thing we wanted to have, but unfortunately, they have been our company since the start of our journey.   We put an amount of money aside to have enough to travel for the first period. It would give us the space we need to get used to our new life and be able to make the right choices in order to earn money on the way.    Only the last few weeks in the Netherlands went differently than expected and we had high unforeseen costs on our… Read More

Police control

OMG 😱 The police had a special action today by controlling large vehicles. And we had to stop too. Due to different regulations here it is in Portugal forbidden to drive with our large tipipoles on our roof. We also leaked cooling liquid and our blue flashing lights on top of our truck wasn’t covered. So… in the end we’ve got 4 fines!!! With a total amount of € 1.340,- We are still in shock 😮😢

Interview for Kiind Magazine

A few months ago Kiind Magazine approached me for a deepening interview about the crisis Timo and I went trough in our relationship two years ago. It became a inspiraring and beautiful conversation with interviewer Nelleke Bos. She was able to form the words into an in-depth  and honest article. Exactly as I hoped it would be. In Dutch only.  I hope you like it! With love 💚 Tamara

True beauty

I love to wander around in small streets of little villages and old neighborhoods of a city. There are so much surprises to find. From the beauty and richness of old buildings to the neglection of some of them. I can see real art in dilapidation. Peeling and faded paint, old walls, little details, some graffiti or even rubbish. Walk around without judgment and with real openness… then you can enjoy from what really is. Beauty is everywhere ❤️

Portugal

So, what happened since we are in Portugal?! I can tell: a lot! Portugal was a direction to go to since we are traveling. We were invited to a lovely place to stay for a longer period. We wanted to put up the tipi there and be part of a community for a while, organize some events: ecstatic dance for example and also a festival and a retreat. The temple of the (h)earth in Aljezur looked like the perfect place for us. But when we arrived and stayed there for a few… Read More

Lisboa

We went yesterday to Lisboa for a very nice ecstatic dance. We hadn’t danced for months and we really missed it. After two hours of barefoot dancing 💃🏼🕺🏻❤️ and a deep journey into ourselves, we’ve got naturally high. Experienced total bliss 🙏🏻 What a pleasure and joy!! . The best part of living in a van is that you can sleep everywhere, also in the middle of the city like Lisboa! So today, we couldn’t resist exploring more of Lisboa. What a nice place to be… we had the best time! @Alfama,… Read More

The redaction was very enthusiastic and wanted an interview with Timo also, for his point of view. You can read his version (Dutch) in this online article. For mine, you will have to go to the shop. It’s on paper only. You can read Timo’s interview here.
