Faces From The Road

Back in the Netherlands, Frank used to be a Marketing consultant, and Paulina was a school teacher. They quit their jobs and moved to Poland to open a new chapter and start a new adventure. Their goal was to create a small social community in order to meet new people and make meaningful connections. Soon after however, when realizing that the somewhat restrictive social and cultural Polish norms were conflicting with their plans, they decided to leave Poland and turn their idea into a global one by reaching out and making individual connections all around the world. So they left everything behind, rented out their flat, packed up whatever belongings they had, and put them all in the trunk of their car and took off to travel around Europe in search of inspiration and an alternative way of living.

According to Frank, the biggest challenge you could possibly face on this quest is to leave your ego behind and get out of your comfort zone. He added: “When you’re searching for the meaning of life, an over-inflated ego would be your worst enemy.”

The conclusion they reached during their European trip was that much work is needed for them on a personal level before they could achieve their goals, and so they took one step further and headed out to Indonesia, aiming at reaching a higher level of soul-searching and self-discovery (and this is where I met the interesting duo).

“The main idea is to find a cheap spot with good food, great climate, and the hope of finding and connecting with like-minded individuals”, added the couple,  which would ultimately help them  broaden their horizons further. And this is where they’ll be spending the next few months or at least until another adventure comes along…
