Handyman Stephen (36) is not into planning and certainly not into a planned life. When he asks his wife, Luis, 33, if she sees a new life in Spain, she doesn’t have to think long…
Loes, an elementary school teacher, also loves adventure. The two quit their jobs, sell their house in Roermond and buy an old truck, which Stephen turns into a camper van. Without a plan, they leave for Spain with their twins Riff and Pip (3).
The best things happen when you don’t have plans
They head to the Costa Brava, looking for a place where they can live and start a business. The two do not yet know exactly what kind of company it will be. Stephen dreams of his own miniature campsite, while Loes would rather start a bed and breakfast. But that shouldn’t spoil the fun, because anything is better than a boring and predictable life.
They give themselves a year to find a suitable location close to the beach, easily accessible and in nature. After a ten-week search, they found him in the province of Alicante. Did they find their dream home?
