  • Description

    Hi we're Jill and Fleur,
    We are both 20 years old, born and raised in the Netherlands and we've been friends since forever, literally. We've decided to go on an adventure together for +- a year. The plan is to travel around the world, starting in Europe. We want to experience new things and learn more about ourselves, different cultures and the world. We both love to be outdoor, so our travels will include a lot of hiking and doing things that require us to be outside. This all sounds pretty cool right? But who are we?

    I'm Jill and for the past year I've studied Educational Sciences, focusing on how children develop and grow up and what impacts them during their childhood. Even though I really liked the study, I felt the itch to travel again. Before I started studying I also lived and worked in Australia for six months and that's when I felt the most happy. So that's why I decided to quit my study and do the thing I love the most; travelling. Besides travelling I love being around and helping animals. I grew up in a big family (I have four sisters) and we've always had a lot of dogs, cats and at one point even horses and chickens. I also love reading and being active. For the past 9 years I've practiced Muay Thai, but I also do a lot of walking and fitness. I love to learn new things and work hard to master what's expected of me. There are very few things I don't like or don't want to try.

    So know you know who I am, now Fleur will tell something about herself.

    Well, my name is Fleur. After high school I didn't know what I wanted to study, but I knew I wanted to improve my English. That's why I decided to go to England and do a language course there for two months. After this experience I went on to study Social Sciences for a year, which was challenging but also really fun. Still it didn't feel like I was doing something I really loved. Luckily Jill randomly said one day 'Let's travel, why not?' and I immediately became excited and knew I had to pursue this idea with her. I love being active, but definetely not the way Jill loves being active (you don't see me wake up early to go for a run for fun). I would wake up early to go for a long walk, have a yoga session or tennis. But I do like reading as much as Jill does, you could put us in the same room with a book and we literally will not talk to each other the whole day. On the other hand we can also talk for ages. I see myself as a happy and social person. I love meeting new people and learning more about new things and other cultures. My mindset consists of putting in the work no matter what. I'm always up for a challenge.

    This was a short introduction on who we are. The last seven months we've both worked non-stop to save up for this trip. We both worked two different jobs; home care for elderly and in a store (Jill in a clothing store and Fleur in a sort of warehouse). Besides that Jill did a lot of babysitting and Fleur worked on a fruit farm in the summer. This shows that when we want something, we really put in the work to get there.
