Hi there, and thanks for stopping by! By the time you make it to my page, you'll already know me. My name is Wilko van de Kamp and I'm an author, photographer, but most of all world traveler. I enjoy sharing the things I'm passionate about as a means to inspire you to "just fly", to go see the world and reach your goals. I enjoy creating my content and making it of benefit to you.

MY STORY
I moved to Canada at age 26, blowing most of my life savings in a transatlantic move. I reinvented how I designed my travelling "addiction". Through "reverse life engineering", I found a way to build a life around the things I'm most passionate about. I've captured my story through photography, books, and hundreds of freely available articles and blog posts. 

A DIFFERENT APPROACH 
As you can imagine, running a site like Living by Experience does not come for free. Over the years, the site has grown from a hobby to an online magazine which needed its own dedicated server to deal with the ever increasing traffic. To keep the lights on, I've always relied on advertisements on my site. Instead of overloading the magazine and its articles with the annoying and time-consuming advertisements you see everywhere else I'm committed to taking a different approach: while continuing to make the magazine and all its content itself available for free around the world, I ask for a voluntary contribution from those who are in a position to do so.

FAN CLUB REWARDS
I have secured some exclusive members-only premium content and resources – including free access to premium courses, e-books, and even paperback books, as a reward for joining my Patreon community. All memberships include access to member-only information, discounts, and resources available from my new private community page right here on Patreon. It'll be a private community, more personal than the information available on my blog. I'll share my personal links and insights with you, not available to the general public.

NOT YOUR CUP OF TEA?
So what if you didn't want to contribute, or maybe you're simply not in a position to do so today? No hard feelings. What I'm doing and sharing today isn't going to change. I'll keep posting my articles free of charge. Every week I'll continue sending out the Living by Experience magazine free of charge, all around the world.

WILL YOU HELP?
I look forward to welcoming you onboard and sharing some of the amazing rewards I have in store for you.

ONWARD
I'm very excited about this new project. I envision a future where I can create my content for you and share it directly with you, without the need to rely on big corporations to supply the funding through advertisements and other online unpleasantries. Let's do this together. This isn't a contract and you won't hurt my feelings if later on, you decide it's not for you and you opt to cancel. But for now, let's do this, shall we?

Bon voyage!

Goals
0% complete
Living by Experience becomes completely Ad Free! This is my primary goal. If my Patreon campaign can reach $1000/month, I will remove the ads from the site! Think about your average blog or news site these days and how they're overloaded with ads. Living by Experience already has way less advertisements than those sites, but in an ideal world all ads would be gone completely.
