From the day we met we started planning our worldwide surftour.
2 life dreams are becoming 1.
We leave in 2020. Follow our preparations and our surf love.
Both of us had very different dreams that came together the instant we met. As children we couldn’t have been more different.
Jeroen has had traveling in his blood forever, having lived in Libya as a little boy and after that always moving around the world in the military but also just by choice to live in Madrid or many places in Holland.
Marloes grew up in one little town called Den Bosch and moved to Utrecht to become a student. She never had an urge to travel. Her family vacations never went further than Austria.
But then Marloes discovered surfing and suddenly staying in Holland was not an option anymore. So she made a plan. To go back to school to get an academic degree in teaching English as a foreign language.
And after that she would move abroad, to a beach and teach and surf. Jeroen, meanwhile was planning to sail the world and surf on every possible wave once his children were grown.
It's like the mafia. Once you're in - you're in.
There's no getting out.

Our fifth date in the first week - Rembrandt Square, Amsterdam.
It was crazy ridiculous love at first sight. And within the hour we knew we wanted the same things in life.
Two weeks later our plan was final:
In three years we will go and travel the world’s best surf spots in a big monster truck.
So we have three years to prepare. And there is a lot of work to do. We are building a ship that will function as a bed and breakfast and as our home when we return during winter.
We are getting websites and social media ready to put up videos for our followers. We are practicing filming, buying filming equipment and always thinking about how we will record everything. We watch a lot of other travelers on youtube and learn from them.
