Arnan de Gans
Nomad searching for paradise
Hello, My name is Arnan de Gans. In 2015 I’ve left my plain and unfulfilling life in the Netherlands behind and did away with what’s expected of me. I've been to the Philippines and Malaysia – Hoping to find the perfect place. Now I'm in Mexico, continuing my search. I didn't quite find it yet.
I travel regularly, and as a result I've turned into a bit of a minimalist. I don’t have a lot of stuff anymore. Everything I own fits in two bags. This works very liberating. The few possessions I have are much more valuable and are more carefully weighed if I should have them at all. But also my life got more minimalistic. I found new things to do and learned to leave behind a lot of things and habits. My life is much simpler now, but at the same time brought a whole new set of challenges.
