Nomad searching for paradise
Hello, My name is Arnan de Gans. I'm an entrepreneur, and mostly work as plugin developer making WordPress plugins. I travel the world like a Ditigal Nomad. But not in a hipster or millenial kind of way.
In 2015 I’ve left my plain and unfulfilling life in the Netherlands behind and did away with the norm. I've been to the Philippines and Malaysia – Hoping to find the perfect place. Currently I'm in Mexico, continuing my search. I haven't quite found it yet.
I travel regularly, and by necessity 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. I find that 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 tends to be a bit simpler because of it, but at the same time brought a whole new set of challenges.
