Wanna be nomad

Finding suitable affordable housing in the Netherlands that is close to public transport is more difficult than difficult. So, since I like to travel, I decided to travel permanently without a permanent residence. I read myself well in about the nomad phenomenon, but only practice can tell you if you are suitable for it. Well, like that military advertisement, I am unsuitable for it. And for the following reasons:

  • I always have trouble finding new living space. Requirements it must be cheap, connect to the previous rental period and be close to public transport.
  • I only managed to get a letter address for 3 months after which the municipality refused to give me one again and I couldn’t find anyone else whose address I could use as a letter address. It is legal tug-of-war with the municipality. They prefer not to provide letter addresses.
  • It is difficult to find a new place all the time. It is a crime to find a new place to live. What is fun for traveling is less fun for living.
  • You spend a lot of time looking for a new home
  • You have to get out after a fixed period if you are going to rent anti-squat or temporarily.

I lasted three years and my range in the Netherlands moved further and further away from Utrecht, so I now live in Eindhoven and Utrecht is terrible far. My mission is to make a home exchange back to Utrecht / Amsterdam and the surrounding area. And then live there for a long time and enjoy traveling in between. I give up that fiddling with housing, but not that fiddling with traveling.
