Who is Eelste?
Eelste, born in 1990 on the country side of Drenthe, Netherlands, and a true adventurer. Lived in Netherlands, Latvia, Sweden and Italy, and finished a bachelor and university masters. Strong headed, go-getter and somebody who has a dream. Most important: Eelste is themselves.
During my masters I applied for a PhD: my plan A. I thought it would be a good idea to have a plan B. And a plan B may be super crazy, right?! Traveling, horse and wagon, I thought it would be good. I wasn’t admitted to the PhD and had already thought more and more about the idea of the wagon. Suddenly it became a plan which I could actually do, it became plan A. It was end of 2015, when the first thoughts about the plan appeared, and see where I am now: the plan ‘may-be-super-crazy’ is becoming reality.
While traveling, which I often do hitch hiking, I experience a sort of inner rest, a peace with the world around me, a love for all that exists. The feeling is addictive, and I can’t get it when I’m running around in daily life. No, I have to enjoy the landscape which passes by, in respect and harmony with all around. You gotta take good care of yourself and the world, and live on a very small scale. For this you gotta share what live offers: the tranquility, love, peace, respect, sustainability, environmental friendliness, the adventure…
