PEOPLE FROM EARTH – PATRICK

TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF Hey there! I’m Patrick, 25 years old and I live near the beautiful Lake of Constance, somewhere between the Salem Castle and the Monkeyforest in a 300 souls village (Germany). At an age where most of the people decide to continue school or to start studying a few semesters this and a few semesters that, just to figure out what to do with their lives. I was already sure what I want to do: Learn a job that I really like, travel as much as possible and try to give something back to this beautiful world and its population. So I decided to turn my…

ARRIVED – FINAL MOMENT ?>

ARRIVED – FINAL MOMENT

I was one of those who couldn’t understand why people prefer to walk, while you can see so much more and a lot faster by bicycle or motorcycle. For this reason, I honestly never walked for a whole day in my life before. Then suddenly, I called myself a pilgrim, walking the trail from Oslo to Trondheim. Miracles really do exist. FINAL MOMENT It’s impossible to put in words, all the moments, the memories, the experiences. But let me take you to the final moment of the trail. ‘How would it be, after so many miles, to arrive at the…

ST. OLAV WAYS – HALF WAY

I take a moment to sit down. I’ve been in such a hurry, to make it to Trondheim before 29 July. Suddenly 300 km went by, I met numerous people and heard a dozen stories. Every day, I moved my tent to another place, and sometimes I was so lucky to find a bed inside. But today, my tent will not move, not an inch. It will stay at this nice spot next to the water, where I will just sit and rest. Because honestly, as grateful I am, I also feel very tired. WEST OR EAST The very first question…

IMPRESSIONS OF ICELAND – WATCH THE MOVIE ?>

IMPRESSIONS OF ICELAND – WATCH THE MOVIE

Iceland, a wild and surprising nature, with a viking history. Have a Iook at the movie, I take you to Isafjordur, Akureyri and Reykjavik. A cruise ship is the perfect way to visit the island, enough time to see the highlights. I just wish I could have spent more time in Reykjavik itself, as I believe the city has more to offer. Of course, Iceland is mainly about nature, there are over 200 volcanoes located in Iceland and over 600 hot springs. In the movie, you’ll also see an example of a geyser, eruptions can hurl boiling water up to 70…

6 MONTHS OF FREEDOM – FIRST THINGS TO DO ?>

6 MONTHS OF FREEDOM – FIRST THINGS TO DO

You read many stories about people leaving their lives behind,  you’re not 100% happy yourself but is this really what you want? The solution: Six months of freedom. A six months break is completely acceptable, as it is not a big life change. Anyone can understand your decision to take a little break, but most important: you can allow yourself this little favour. In my opinion, everyone should have these ‘six months’ at least once in their lives. It gives you the opportunity to taste a different lifestyle and allows you to find the maximum you. This solution is for all…

GEIRANGER FJORD / NORWAY – WATCH THE MOVIE

While I was working as a video operator on a cruise ship, I had the opportunity to see this scenery weekly. The movie is shot on a perfect sunny day, early in the season. When the snow is still melting and the numerous waterfalls are full of joy. It is definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. Looking back at the video, I can feel myself, standing on the upper deck of the ship. Holding the railing, admiring that wonderful fjord and it’s waterfalls. Like an inexhaustible life energy. Some say Geiranger, the little town at the end…

WORKING ABROAD – VIDEO OPERATOR ON A CRUISE SHIP

Probably the worst but without any doubt the most wonderful job I ever did. Being a video operator on a cruise ship, one of the most crazy ideas I ever had in my life.

Living in a city on the water with about 4000 people, traveling from country to country. It’s such a special experience. I sum up the best and the worst. 10 PROS Destinations: Obvious, the fastest way to see the world is working on…

MY TICKET OUT – WORKING ABROAD

No, it was not easy to leave my job in the film industry in Belgium behind. But if you want to live abroad you have to make compromises. The most obvious way to travel is to find a job in tourism. I wanted to turn my life upside down, without too many risks. So, I could come back after six months and continue where I left of. Five years ago I found my first ticket ‘out’ as a REPRESENTATIVE: 10 PROS Accommodation included: I had a big apartment with a bathroom, sleeping room and kitchen for myself. A car, it depends for how many…
