My name is Jeanette, also known as JC from Holland, I guess because of my lifestyle of work and travel you can call me a digital nomad. But I am not an average digital nomad.
Average Nomads are 30-something, travel a lot, own a huge backpack, live or work in tribes, mostly in Nomad Hotspots, and their core income is online income.
And I am over 60 (born in 1961), dislike Nomad Hotspots, do not work or travel in tribes, do not own a huge backpack, travel slow, very slow, meaning I stay in one country for a long period of time and travel in that specific country, travel on a motorcycle, haven’t got all my income eggs in one (online) basket.
I own 2 websites, Floating Coconut, and my Dutch website Leaving Holland., I have visited over 32% of the world, I love my job as an immigration coach, write daily in a diary, paper or online. I am writing my memoires and planning on publishing them anytime next year.

There is a first for everything and I tell you, some firsts can be very overwhelming. As was my first time to order a meal in a busy street food market in Kuala Lumpur. I went to Kuala Lumpur on ...Read More
Those mixed signals both coming from him and from yourself: your heart and mind telling you two different things. I guess we have all been there. I know I certainly have, multiple times to be honest. My ex and I ...Read More
I’m an Empath. Having said that I know that deserves some explanation. The restlessness in me and the huge amount of time I need to spent on lonely beaches away from the crowd, in total solitude are my 2 points ...Read More
