We have been wondering how to start this blog…
Should there be an introduction or should we dive right in?
On one hand, the last thing we wanted was some “Hello World” post saying “Hi! Welcome to our blog! We’re not sure where this going yet so We’re writing this lame message“.
On the other hand, We think some explanation could be interesting. Just to give you an idea about what you will find here, why we are doing this or as the title of this post already gave away: What’s this all about?
So here’s our Hello World!
Who are we?
Let’s start with introducing ourselves.
We are Nick and Lins, a couple in our early thirties. Both born and raised in a small Belgian town, both having a middle of the road youth: Kindergarten, elementary school, first kiss at 14, first beer at 15, first moped at 16, first moped crash at 16 and 2 weeks, you know, the average little Jane and Joe.
Then there was college. More beer, more kisses, a car, more responisibility so less crashes and the development of big dreams. Dreams about great jobs, earning lots of money, finding a partner, buying a house with a nice garden, have a dog and a kid or two. That was our idea of being successful in life. Because that’s how everyone else in the village was living and they seemed pretty happy.
But then after college some things happened. We met each other and fell in love, we started doubting if our “dream” was really what we wanted or if it was just something society wanted us to do and we got bitten by a mosquito carrying the world’s greatest desease: Wanderlust.
So we got new dreams, we started traveling the world and learned a hell of a lot about life and how people decide to be living it.
And then we discovered naturism…
Get to the point…
I hope you’re still with me? Don’t worry of you’ve skipped the two previous paragraphs, nothing was told that can save your life.
If you were hoping to find the naturist bible here, I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you. We’re no naturism gurus. Actually, even though we’ve built some experience we still consider ourselves rookies. But we’re planning to fix that in no time!
Like in every new experience, we came back with way more questions than answers.
What does it mean to be a naturist?
What are the rules?
Can you become a naturist over night or is it something that has been boiling inside your whole life?
What’s with the different names (naturist, nudist, nude recreator,…)?
Why is there still a taboo atmosphere around naturism (and how can we get rid of that)?
How do you start with this?
How come the average age of the naturists we encounter is way higher then our age?
And many many more.
As I said before we are no authority on this subject.
With this blog we hope to take you on an adventure into naturism. We will share our experiences and what we have learned and we hope to inspire you to take the dive yourself, or at least to show you that we are no maniacs or perverts.
If you’ve been reading until here it must mean that we at least made you curious, and for now curiosity is all you need.
