Thank you for visiting TIAWOT.com & we hope we can inspire you with our ideology.
First off al a small introduction of who we are. My name is Maya. My partners name is Anthony. We both love to #travel, to #explore, eat #food, to drink, enjoy nature and mostly we’re drunk in love. We have been together, well sometimes it feels like eternity, but I think as of this writing (2020) for about 7 years. And we both had the same thoughts of about sharing our world with you. #interracialcouple
And it started with a dream …
Our dream started when we had a normal 9 to 5 job, you same ish, different day story. It’s like the movie “The Truman show”, you know with Jim Carrey. Ok to continue…
So, we started thinking: How can we break the pattern of our life we live now. How can we make some money, without working for someone else, so we can support ourselves. When we finally broken our own pattern and really start #livingourdreams.
How? What? When?
All these questions and even more started to pop up in my head. And the funny thing is, from the both of us, I am the thinker and my partner is a typical guy. You know the one who always do things without even thinking. He is always lecturing me about how to be more spontaneous, well I am spontaneous in my own way.
It started with a dream, but to actually make this dream a reality we had to do some preparation. I think it was in 2015, we started a mood board. Also wrote on a couple of papers, I think printing paper, the following “1 sept 2019 emigreren Azië” (Yes in Dutch).
Finally this was it.
This is our deadline. And in our mind we were also saying that the text could also be “Januari 2020 we will be in Asia”. To keep that certain amount of reflection time in between. Our dream was written down and we had already been to Asia a couple of time in these last four years. To be accurate, four times.
After 4 years a friend of ours, who had been living in Indonesia for a while and worked for an US company as a freelancer, called us. If we are interested to work as a freelancer at the same US company from Bali. DUH!!! YES YES YES. When can we start? That was an open door we needed (well I needed), some financial security. We have a job as a freelancer in Asia, we can work anywhere & everywhere we want. This is the beginning of our adventure, the Universe has given and we shall accept.
But now we had to act quickly. First thing we did was we quit our job, sold almost everything & a few months later we were in Asia. The funny thing is, we arrived on Bali the 31th of August 2019.
Wow, we couldn’t believe it …
But after three months working as a freelancer for this US company. It still didn’t feel right to us. We had some big disagreements with the company and our friend. Mostly about that we had to work more than 10 hours a day. Nope, that was one of the reasons we wanted to escape our 9 to 5 job. So, we did what was right for us and we decided to quit working as a freelancer for him.
Ooh oh back to those questions in head…
What to do? Where to go?
We talked a lot about this & we know everything is going to be alright, it’s still out of my comfort zone. (not for my partner) So, yeah there is a lot of decisions we had to make at this point in time … are we staying here or are we going back to Europe ?
We decided to stay here & create our own work. What we really want to do is, we want to inspire people like you, and you and also like you.
TIAWOT.com is all about life, mostly on how we see life. You know, through our own eyes. And we want to share this world with you;
- Our endless hunger for foooooood.
- Our thoughts, our opinions, our view of life.
- And our travel adventures
We want also to help you, to get you out of your comfort zone and encourage you to take that first step towards what your passion is. So you can also enjoy more of life & create your own money flow to support yourself, your family and even your friends.
But the first step is always the hardest. And it isn’t going to be an easy road to take, if you don’t take a risk in life … you never know what you can accomplished.
Keep in mind that everybody is different. If the first step is easy for you, like my partner, it doesn’t mean it will be easy for the other one, like myself.
“Trying to understand each other is difficult, yet not impossible.”
So try respecting each other, #stayinyourownlane.
We don’t know what they have been through in life. Try even harder if you still didn’t succeed.
Don’t judge until you know their story and still after you have heard their story, gives you still no right to judge. Grow each & every day to know more about yourself and try to be your best version of yourself every day.
Be nice to each other & keep it in balance, yin yang.
That is our beginning of our adventure & we like it to share it with you. Don’t hesitate if you have any questions or suggestions, we are not perfect.
