Thank you for visiting my blog! I am Mees. Or Marie-Cecile, officially. I live in Amsterdam, but on April 1st 2014 I’ve started driving my dream: a 6 months travel through Europe, meeting fantastic people, seeing beautiful places. Me and grandpa’s Peugeot 206 are planning to visit villages, well, mostly people, in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Greece, Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and so on…
I’m searching for stories about growing older throughout different countries in Europe. How do people in our united but complex continent think and feel about of ageing? How do cultures, people and governements treat the elderly? What does seniority bring to peoples lives?
And of course, we don’t have to be old to think about growing older. In fact, we are all aging. At this very moment. Argh! Or yayy?! :-)
I will regularly share some of these stories with you on this blog. Please feel free to comment or to send me requests for certain topics you want to see me hunting after. You can reach me in the comments part, or – for longer messages – send an email to email@example.com.
(Ps. Sometimes I will take a break from my ageing quest, for example when I feel like taking a small holiday or when I have co-travellers ;-))
