So, this is the explorer behind #Explorers: Melissa, a 25-year old nomadic enthusiast that is head over heels in love with travelling the world. I started this blog at the start of 2017, to share my story with the world. A story of an aspiring digital nomad recent grad.

In 2017 I graduated from my MSc Management of Innovation at Erasmus University, the Netherlands, and I did not want to live up to my family’s expectations of working 9 to 5. What I do want to do is travel the world, enjoy life to the fullest, and not wait with fulfilling my dreams until I am retired. 

My goal is to ultimately become location independent. I want to work from my laptop, dependent only on WiFi and not be bound by location. My mission is to share how I do this with you.

Are you familiar with the saying “When you are a teenager you are fit and have time, but no money, when you are an adult you are fit and have money, but no time, and when you are old you have time and money, but you are not fit anymore”? Therefore, I decided to not spend all of my precious time working while I am still young!

Not only on my blog #Explorers, but also on my Instagram and Facebook @hastagexplorers, you can read about my travels. I have lived all around the globe, and -so far- visited 40 countries. However, I will also share with you how I am planning on becoming a digital nomad without having a lot of work experience. After all, I only just graduated.

With a few university degrees in my pockets and my passports in my hands, I am going to conquer the world. Want to know when I am taking off? Leave your email behind so I can send you a newsletter in the future!
