Hi! My name is Suzanne.

For more than 15 years, I’ve been travelling oceans by sail, van & fins while cultivating conscious living 🌱.  For years, I travelled on a sailboat. Now, since 4 years, my adventure basecamp is my campervan, my first car, and my first house. A year, I also got into hiking and plan to get some hiking stories out soon, too. I‘m here to help you go on ocean and wilderness adventures, and share encouragement for a memorable and conscious nomadic way of life with nature. On this website, you find dozens of blogposts with tips and inspiration on travelling by sailboat, van life, hiking, freediving, ayurveda and natural conscious nomadic living, and wild style.

I wrote a Travel Guide for the ocean: Ocean Nomad, created a community to connect ocean people and boats: Ocean Nomads, and just released: a course on get into travelling by sailboat, if you don’t have a boat. I also organize sailing trips with Ocean Nomads. The next on is in Greece in 2024. Come join me!

Be kind and curious, explore, experience ocean magic and help to keep the ocean playground alive. I wish for you to see for yourself how beautiful the ocean are! And hopefully ignite the superpower within you to take steps into a conscious nomadic life in or near the sea.
