Maartje Smit recently spoke to Vice about her never ending vacation and we are VERY jealous!!

Smit is currently on a three year (and counting) vacation, spending the last few years hopping around the globe couch surfing and crashing with people she met on the road! 

While she occasionally works the odd job to cover expenses, she has a lot of savings back from when she was a project manager at a software company in the Netherlands so money isn’t that big of an issue! WOW. 

Smit believes its a combination of smart saving and minimal travel expenses that allow her to travel like she does. 

The travel expert also thinks anyone can do what she does! “Maybe folks are too insecure about practical details like insurance” she said. 

“I am sure that everyone who is working away in an office, enviously looking at my Facebook albums could live the exact same life. I don’t understand why more people don’t do what I do!”

Smit has no plans to get back to her old routine if she ever does head home, back to the Netherlands. 


Go girl!
