After ending my professional life in the world of advertising, I went to Thailand for two months to take off and think about the next turn I wanted to take. I learned Thai massage (which I would like to take up again one day and offer to my hosts) and during that time I rented my apartment in Brussels. Back home, I continued to rent it occasionally. I liked to welcome these people on the move and make them feel at home. In the meantime I went to friends’ houses, to my family, and we shared special moments.
Since then, little by little my project to start a Bed & Breakfast began to mature until I had a click, as a matter of course. It was on one of Portugal’s beautiful beaches. A desire to change my life, to give a new direction and meaning to what I was doing. An aspiration for more simplicity, a gentler way of life, more nature, more pleasure, more humanity, and above all less stress, less routine, and less greyness. Back to basics’, sun and colours as a bonus.
So I very quickly decided to look for a house here and sell my apartment there.
