  • Chloe Nazaruk, Lives (normally in between all of her travels ) in Belper, United Kingdom & after looking at her Google+ posts , I added her to my Google+ Circle “Consciousness /Planetary Awareness” where I have now added 147 of my Google+ friends .

On her  GOOGLE + ,  I notice that Chloe has “only” 116 followers & 4.890 views,  but don`t be fooled by this,  as on her TWITTER,  we can see a whole different picture. So yust for the record, she has posted 30.146 TWEETS ,  she FOLLOWS  39.151 people & IS followed by 37.412 people on her Twitter & we seem to have 60 Twiiterfollowers IN COMMON.  Its always nice to know we have quite some common grounds

  • 25 sep. 2015, What If You Lost Everything You Own?It’s completely understandable to be scared of losing a loved one, or something that’s incredibly valuable to you. But what about material things?…..
  • Anne Westenbrink , my Comment on her Google+ post :

Annes Collage Kenia projectDear Chloe. Thank U for this Great post. This is my story for U & All to read. About 6 years ago,  I met someone from Kenya online on a Social Media site , where I am yust to make friends. He had lost everything he owned  (his job, house, car , pc & even his passport ) in 1 day ! That was after the Electionviolence broke out in his country & 30.000 kenians ended up in a refugeecamp , with not much hope for the future. He had managed to flee to Kisumu where he could stay with a befriended family in the slums & got out a lifeline on the internet to see if there would still be someone with the right attitude & an open heart & mind to talk too. That one happened to be me 🙂 The next 3 years I spend trying to help him get on his feet again & now he is back with his family, who still live in small village in west Kenya, without electricity & waterpipes. Together with a few friends we send him money for 2 cows, a few goats & chickens, a watertank & new roofs for their huts & that way  enabled them to start growing their own vegetables again & a small business (second hand shoes), so they can survive at least. It was the best experience to me,  as that really helped them & me, to  once again start having Hope & Faith & Love for a Humanity willing to really Help each other without agenda`s. Btw. I have been living on a very basic income all my life and very happily so.

00sv000tfERSince 2 years, a very brave & honest man from the US military has  put his mind to come & see me & Mm & some of my best friends  helped me pay for his 3 months leave,  that is now actually granted for by the Pentagon happily. So when his job is done in Afghanistan, (they`re fighting the Taliban in Kunduz right now, which is not an easy fight as U may know ) & so we`ll see how this adventure will end. I `ll let U know if U write me back and /or follow me :). Never ever give up Hope & never stop helping yourself to a Good life,  filled with adventures as that way U can be an example to others.  It all comes down  to knowing that “We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For ” & Together as ONE Humanity, We Can Change this World for the Better. We need to work together so that All Humans in the end can Live a Happy & Healthy  Life in Freedom & the Joy of Living.  May God Bless U dear. ( btw I yust made a comment on your Blog on “about me” through Twitter ). U can find me on : http://about.me/annewestenbrink


On went my search into this young & adventurous woman, Chloe & on her About Me,  http://backpackandalaptop.com/about-me I read :

Hi, I’m Chloe, creator of Backpack and a Laptop.I’m 25 years old, British, ex military and currently wandering the earth.My goal is to be completely free. I want to carry my possessions around on my back, to see as much of the world as possible, and to build an online business so that I never have to take a job again. It may seem a bit extreme, but to me, that’s living the dream !

·       It all started when I was 16….

I quit school. As I’m from the UK, that’s legal, but it’s definitely not the advised course of action.

Every adult I knew thought it was a terrible idea, but let me tell you this much- I’ve learned so much in the past 9 years that I think it was probably the best decision I’ve ever made.

I stayed in the UK until I was 18 (just), at which point I moved to Germany for a job. There was no thought process involved- I simply wasn’t happy where I was, and took the first job I got offered.

I soon discovered that Germany was not right for me, but that didn’t matter. I’d taken that first step away from my country of birth, and something had changed inside of me.

        The traveling bug had kicked in.

 Next thing I knew, I was going to California for the summer. I don’t know if you’ve ever been there, but California is absolutely stunning. I felt immediately at home there, and I know that I’d move there in a heartbeat (you know, when I’m older and want to settle). I digress.

My love of traveling went from there- I may have only been 18 at the time, but I knew that I had to see the world. There would be no settling down, no ‘stable’ job, no security. I wanted to test myself, to see how far I could go.

And you thought that the story would carry on like that? I’m afraid not. I traveled for 2 years before succumbing to pressure and returning home to find a ‘stable job’.

       ‘Get a stable job!’

I was 20 by this point, and had actually begun to believe that I should be setting up my future. You know- house, car, job for life ? I finally gave in and bought into that line of thinking.

Cue a lot of tail between my legs moments as I dragged myself home from quite literally the other side of the world (Australia is an incredible place to visit- I’d definitely recommend it), arriving back at home and finding myself a stable job (well, as ‘stable’ as the Army can be).

For 4 years I stuck my stable job. For 4 years I felt like I was going against everything I believed in- I felt trapped.

So I made an executive decision, and…

 I quit.

67096_4625160556556_1798425319_n And I went to Belize for 3 months, with really no plan. Does that sound crazy to you? It even sounded crazy to me, but it was an incredible experience.


I chilled out on my own for 2 months.

I found a snake and a scorpion in my house.

I lived off rice, bread and eggs.

I read a lot of books.

I got my head back in the game.

I moved out to a tropical island.

I swam with sharks.


My mother even came out to visit me, and we sat chilling out as the sun set every night, drinking mojitos, and watching luminous fish swimming in the sea below our feet. Words cannot describe how magical it was.


I recently got home from Mallorca, which is another stunningly beautiful place.

I lived a mile from the beach, and I get to do what I love, which is look after animals.

But I run on a 3 month cycle- so right now I’m back at home, just starting to plan my next big adventure.

That’s what I love. Life is one huge adventure, and I’m determined to get out there and live it.


*This was favourite swimming spot in Mallorca. It doesn’t get much more beautiful! 

(Note by me, Anne : it was a captivating picture but takes up too much space in this blog for me  so I deleted it here , sorry &  anyway U can find beautifull pictures on Mallorca anywhere on the internet )


And that’s all well and good, isn’t it…..but how on earth can you fund such a lifestyle?

My friends and family think that I’m crazy- but a good kind of crazy. I’m simply determined that there is a way to make this lifestyle work long term. There has to be a way to work from my computer, anywhere in the world, to fund my traveling.

And it doesn’t mean that I lack stability in my life. I’m still studying (online, I’m half way through my degree right now). While I was in my stable job I invested in property, so I have links back to the UK, and a small income from my houses.

My point is that just because you’re not living a traditional life, doesn’t mean that the future doesn’t matter. I still think about the long term effects of what I’m doing, about my retirement fund and future business ventures. Education still matters to me, but I just do it online instead of in a physical university.

Let me tell you a little secret…..


You can live your life from anywhere in the world. 

 Many people would love to travel but are terrified of leaving their job. I get it. Not having job security is a big worry- , even for me. But that’s why I’m now working so hard to create a business that I can take anywhere with me.

The internet has made this possible, so let’s take advantage of it!
