My book 'Het leven is te kort om op kantoor te zitten' (Life is too short to sit in an office) has been published!

20190913_131704.jpg

In the summer of 2015 I took a sabbatical from work to rethink my life. I walked from Burgundy on the Le Puy route and the Francés to Santiago and decided that this was the life I wanted to live: simple, physical, outside, less stuff, closer to nature and without impressive job titles.

A year ago I moved to the Spanish countryside and started writing a book about my transformation. With my book I hope to inspire other people to go and do what they love.

Congrats, and are you planning on a Spanish or English version? I am a bit long in the tooth to learn another language! The photo is superb.

Taken from my garden, I am a lucky person!

That is up to the publisher, I guess. But I don't think I will be that lucky...

Luka, I wish you all the best with your book and your chosen life. I sometimes wish that I had the strength of mind to buck the system and do as you have.

Gefeliciteerd!

I of course heard about it as I read your blog (I like the new layout by the way) but wanted to officially congratulate you here.

Best of luck with the sales (from another soul who will be following her dreams in 2020 and joining you in Spain:))
