Not the most obvious choice but for me the absolute right one. In 2010, I went to Costa Rica to do volunteer work at a rural school in the mountains. An amazing experience that sparked my desire to leave the Netherlands and do more with my life and make a difference in the world. After that trip to Costa Rica I met a man from Dominica, that evolved into a relationship. I went on holiday to Dominica for the first time in 2011 and every year since. Although the relationship did not last, my love for Dominica grew stronger with every visit. And suddenly my question of where to move to was answered.
So, 6 years later I found myself in Dominica, also known as the Nature Island because of its stunning unspoiled natural beauty. This beauty, the friendly people, the warm climate and the wonderful food made me feel right at home.
