Belgium: Full of Experience Junkies
Yes, I’m watching you.
Well, kinda. Through the power of Google Analytics I’m paying attention to what you’re reading on this website and from where you’re visiting from. Since The Experience Junkie launched in late June I’ve had visits from over 78 different countries around the world – roughly the same amount I’ve visited. While some of those are supportive friends (thank you) others are strangers discovering the site, appreciating the thrust of the philosophy and seeing some of themselves in the ethos of embracing life through the range of experiences on offer.
Last week, I saw a spike in visitor numbers from Belgium. I couldn’t figure it out at first but further digging revealed that Belgium national newspaper De Morgen had run a story on The Experience Junkie. Click here to read the article.
More than exciting was that fellow journalist and traveller Debbie Pappyn got it! She got the philosophy behind The Experience Junkie, and she’s not the only one. Her article struck a chord with her readers. Belgium, it seems, is a country full of like-minded Experience Junkies.
I did a little dance when I saw the article. I wore a grin that stretched from ear to ear for the rest of the day. And if all that wasn’t enough to make my week, I received a lovely letter from Matthieu, who wrote:
