Hello, nice to meet you here. My name is Jeanette Slagt also known as JC from Holland.
I live the life of a nomad, minimalistic and basic, happy with sand between my toes
- In 2015 I sold all I owned and left for the Philippines
- In 2017 I started a long motorcycle trip through the Philippines
- In 2019 I traveled through Italy before moving to Mexico where I currently stay
About my nomadic life
Even before the term ‘Digital Nomad’ was invented or the internet existed, I already did this kind of non-stop traveling and working thing in South America. Although there wasn’t much digital about that trip since those were the days snail-mail ruled the world.
I left the Netherlands when I was 17 in 1978 and returned 2.5 years later. I traveled the UK, Azores, Caribbean, and Latin America, through the Panama Canal and way down South through the Magellan Straight, all the way up again to Brazil and Barbados.
After returning home, I visited lots of places in Europe and North Africa. But always with a home address to return to.
Now there is no home to return to. Home is where my feet rest and where the internet is at my fingertips.
I work online while traveling the world
I am a writer, and blogger ever since blogging became a “thing” I do my own SEO and Social Media Management. I run 2 websites and advise people that want to change their lives, move abroad or become a digital nomad.
