I’m (José) Javier de Dios van der Zwan, 34 and I have a dream! It’s to start a new life on Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. To do so, I have taken 8 months of from work to explore the Island. The purpose of this website is to inform friends and familiy and to inspire others to persue their dreams. What’s yours?
You might wonder where the perculiar name comes from. Let me tell you 🙂 My mom is from the Netherlands and my dad is from Spain. They split up before I was born but got back together and split up again when I was 2 and 13 years old. We have spend the first of those 2 years on the Spanish penisula, the second time we lived in Tenerife. That must have been the best year of my childhood. From the moment we left, I have always believed that one day I would return.
For the past 15 years I haved served in the Royal Netherlands Army and the Rotterdam police department. Currently I’m an infantry captain in the army. If you’re actually interested in the details you can have a look on my Linkedin profile 😉
In my spare time I like to travel, work out, run, ride bicyles and motorcycles, hike, dive, chill, watch movies and spend time with friends and family. Hmmm, this sounds an awful lot like my profile on Tinder… Did I mention that I’m single?

Smell you later alligator!
