Tax advisor for Dutch citizens abroad and foreigners in the Netherlands, former tax official and owner of Back to Basic Sweden.
I have a passion for growing food, farm animals and cooking.
I worked as a registered former official at the international tax service office in the Netherlands. Specialist as an informant for Individuals and small businesses. Besides of that I worked in health care and world wide tourist sector.
I traveled, lived and worked in countless countries around the globe. I have seen from up close how a lot of people struggle to survive. But somehow the most of them find a way to live happy.
I have visit tribes that only live from what the jungle and ocean has to offer; Farmers around the world that live without running water, gas and electricity using different techniques on the land with only handmade tools. Especially that interest me much.
I learned that we don’t need many things to be happy. I started to shed the urge of materialism to become more and more minimalistic. In meanwhile my knowledge and ingenuity about how to survive with just a little starts to grow.
I trained myself in how to survive in modern society, but even more about survival, bushcrafting, handcrafts, growing crops, conserving food, keeping farm animals and so on.
After a long time of dwelling around the globe and self education, I decided it is time to put my knowledge to the test. Sharing the same interest, Ter bought us a cabin in the woods where we begin to build a home farm from scratch. After a year the first animals start to thrive and beautiful crops are growing.
My challenge is to become self-sufficient within five years. A dream comming true.
