Our first 12 months living in Ibiza
Many people dream about moving to Ibiza but most of the time it just stays a dream…. We were action takers. If we like something we go and get it, so 1 and a half year ago we made the big jump. Time flies when you are having fun! We love to share our first year experiences with you. Are you ready to move to Ibiza?
Our Ibiza home
After a year we finally have that feeling of ‘home’. The first 8 months was like a movie. In Holland we always say ‘you have to land’. Well that is what we needed to do. There are certain things that we really had to get use to, like tap water is not something that you just can drink. You always need to have sufficient bottled water in the house. Well that is strange for two dutchies who were used to the luxury of water from the tap. The same goes for your gas tank. Make sure to replace it in time.
The Ibiza lifestyle
In Holland we were use to planning every little bit of our lives. In Ibiza that is totally different. You just go with the flow. You never plan you just let the island guide you. If there is one big lessons that we have learned in the last year it will be to listen to your feelings. Don’t think but feel. That goes for every aspects of your Ibiza life. We have met so many great people from all walks of life, age and nationality. We can safely say that we have made a lot of new friends. Nobody is judged and every spirit can be who they truly want to be.
Is it easy…?
That is a question that people ask us many times. Nothing in life is easy. Nothing will come to you by itself. You have to work, laugh, cry, deal with homesickness, insecurity and more, but you always must get up and move on. Like our friend Ida says, who has lived in Ibiza for many years, “It is not about your destination, but about the journey.” Well Ida after a year on our beautiful island we finally understand what you said to us years ago.
Now, pack your bags, plan, start saving money (because you are going to need it the first year) and come over. Don’t think just feel. The island will guide you to your true destination in life. We believe in you, the only thing you need to do is believe in yourself. When you need some help we love to invite you to join our Ibiza Inside Coaching membership. We will help you personally to make the move to Ibiza or anywhere in this world…
