I admire the Bicycles’ Country for all those things you can see around… For most dutch people it is pretty common and nothing surprising, not dutch myself I find it amazing 🙂
Carrying trash. Some people might see laziness, I see Genius 🙂
Riding together…in one bicycle never seemed that easy!
Carrying his son and the skateboard
going to the lake…
going to/ from the station/airport…
Bringing a friend’s bike 😉

When was the last time you did something for the first time?
We can say whatever we want: that being vegan is a hype or that we are extreme … but in the meantime everyone of these people change things in everyday life. “Vegan” can have a thousand definitions but above all it is unconditional love! ….. 😍💞
A year ago, I was starting this project around the world … I am grateful that destiny allowed me to meet and know you. I hope our paths will cross again soon. THANK YOU TO BE PART OF THE CHANGE . Take care
VEGANISM has no border, no nationality, no age, no gender, no language, no physical apparences or skin colors….
Definition of hippie: noun
This is where I couldn’t possess a lot of THINGS (compared to a permanent residence), couldn’t accumulate so much things but this is where I enjoyed my life the most. This is where I felt that we are all ants. This is where I’ve learnt so much about people, possessions, society, ways of living, and…myself. This is where I had the worst feelings but almost all, the better ones!….This is where “problems” was not a word we could use because we should find solutions quickly.
This is where I haven’t accumulate things, and while working, spent this money for food and hobbies, so did enjoy MOMENTS.
I hope you guys could also experience life like that : simple, easy, cheap, experience moments not things and realise problems are not problems, become or stay grateful of what you have and are right now, work hard for your dreams….
I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within. – Rumi
