2019 was over before I could blink. I hope 2020 last longer. What happend in 2019? And what am I looking forward to in 2020?
Winning 5.000 euro for Stichting Verloren Jaren
I am on the board of NGO Verloren Jaren (Lost Years). With this NGO we won 5.000 euro for the things we are doing with peersupport and working on combatting Stigma.
From 3 websites to 1 website
I had 3 website for each thing I did , but found it a hassle. So now back to one website with everything on it what I do, my blog and interviews with interesting people. You can find it on wanderingguiselaine.
Interviews with interesting people
This year I talked with a few interesting people about what they do and how they want to change the world. You can find these interviews on https://wanderingguiselaine.nl/interviews/ .
Wandelen naar Jezelf
Wandelen naar Jezelf means walking to yourself. It means getting to know yourself better by doing workshops and hikes. Last year we organized a midweek on Ameland and this year on Terschelling. The group particpated in workshops about getting to know what you want and we made 3 hikes in which we had one on one conversations about what the participants wanted with their lives, working on dreams. I organized this together with Herstelreizen.
Hiking the Pieterpad
In Spring 2019 I started hiking Pieterpad. I am on 1/4 of the route. Because of dead of my grandmother and moving I couldn’t hike more. I hope to finish the route in 2020.
4 Days Marbella Hike
In the fall I went to Marbella to hike for four days around there. It was nice to do. I walked places I would see on a normal vacation to Marbella. A look if that part of Spain is a place is I would like to setup my tiny house with a garden. No it is not THE Place, but I will keep doing other 4 Days walk of 20K in Southern Europe to find the perfect spot for my Tiny house with garden.
WordPress Conference in Berlin
At the beginning of the summer I went to Berlin for a WordPress conference. There I got to know more about the future of WordPress, blogging and SEO. It was a nice trip and I got to see a bit more of Berlin. It was my third visit to the city.
Seeing a Christmas market in Germany was on my to do list. So I went to Koln in November, but it was one day too early for the Christmas market. So I have to go to another city in Germany again next year to experience the German Christmas market.
Night of the refugee
At the beginning of the summer I walked 40k through the night from Rotterdam to Den Haag for the NGO refugees. It was hard, but a nice experience. This year I will walk again 40K but then from Utrecht to Amersfoort if possible. You can support the cause.
What will 2020 bring
Next year I want:
- To have a higher revenue. I hope to earn with my blog, writing articles, selling books, investing in crowdfunding and bonds and online courses as passive income.
- Also I want to read 52 books 2020. I have a list of more than 300 books I want to read.
- I would love to go on 1 workation in 2020. Last year I went on workation to Berlin and Curacao.
- It would be fun if I could also develop furtther earning from hiking workation/vacations.
- Not work related wishes for 2020 are: I would love to loose 20KG, play tennis again, make a few travels and put more money a side.
