Errer (pronounced èrréé) comes from French and stands for wandering, roaming, traveling, hanging around. This is how we see ourselves in life. We aim to create a life that combines creativity, traveling and freedom. Being outside in nature, but also writing on our blog and creating beautiful things for other people. We simply want to do the things we like. Living healthy and enjoy our adventures together. Far away, but also close to home.
The errer logo exists of the two middle ‘r’ letters which are standing next to each other in the opposite direction. For us, our logo is a sign whether to go left or right. It stands for our choices we have to make and the road we take in our life, changing direction from time to time.
We always follow our heart. And live the life we want to live. This sounds simple, but it can be complicated sometimes. How often are people influenced by people around them. Friends, parents and random people often have an opinion. We ask ourselves all the time what is important to us instead of doing what is considered as ‘normal’. Nobody should decide what you must do. Everyone has a choice, even if you think you haven’t.
We want to think in challenges and not in certainty. Traveling through life. Turning our back to ‘9 to 5’ mentality, daily routine and collecting lots of stuff. We want to live a sustainable lifestyle where entrepreneurship and plant-based food are integrated in our daily life.
People often expect you to buy a house with a mortgage, getting married, work five days a week and have kids. For other people it’s a dream, but for us it sounds like a nightmare. We rather search for freedom and the adventure without being attached to something.
Don’t let anyone make you think your dreams are not realistic or achievable. Often people are judging because they don’t try it themselves.
A healthy and conscious lifestyle is very important for us. Years ago we still occasionally ate meat. We stopped eating meat about 10 years ago and frankly we now feel stupid we didn’t decide it much earlier.
From January 2020 we decided to eat completely vegan. Because why should we still eat other animal products like milk and eggs? There is so much cruelty behind this industry too. Animal cruelty is for us the main reason to stop eating animal products. Now we consider it as barbaric that animals are seen as ''meat'' and not as living beings. That we use and murder them on such large scale only for human consumption. Secondly, global warming and the negative impact on nature also play a huge role to abandon animal products. Lastly, a plant-based diet has many health benefits and we have never felt so much energy in our body.
And we know now it is really not difficult to eat vegan. There are so many alternatives available.
For us healthy food means; as much as possible unprocessed, organic, no added sugar, little salt, not too many carbohydrates, varied and a “normal” portion. Lots of vegetables, fruit, nuts and whole-wheat products. Pure ingredients. Find here our delicous plant-based recipes.
We try to reduce our carbon footprint as much as we can. A plant-based diet has already a huge impact, but we try to do more. We don’t want children. At home we use our bicycles as often as possible, we separate our waste and buy less clothing and unnecessary things.
The only thing we find difficult is our love for travel. We try not to fly too often and when we travel we try to do it as sustainable as possible. No large hotels and all inclusive resorts, we rather choose for a small Airbnb or eco-resort where sustainability is prioritiy.
Making money is no priority for us, we prefer making memories instead of collecting stuff. Our love for animals is huge. In fact, Remco and I have two dreams in our lives. Our first dream is to have a little farm with rescued animals somewhere in the countryside in Southern Europe. However, we cannot combine this with our second dream; exploring the world with a self build van.
Our plan for now is to go on adventure first while working online. Then we settle down somewhere and build our little farm in the middle of nowhere. Sounds good right?! And while we enjoy life we hope to do a lot of creative projects with errer.
