Hi! This is me, Veerle Helsen (36), walking through the streets of San Sebastian in Spain, about 2 years ago. It was there, between beach and fairytale city centre that I started dreaming of a sabbatical, jumping into the unknown. I’d been working almost 15 years for magazines and newspapers in Belgium (De Morgen, De Tijd, Knack Weekend), and I wanted to learn new things and discover other worlds. I bought a camper and started chasing dreams. The journey changed my life: I quit my job as architecture journalist and just released my guide Surf & Stay.
