Hasselt, surrounded by the water

Waterwefollow a travel, lifestyle and fishing blog

Hi guys,
Very welcome to our blogwebsite; waterwefollow!

We are Rutger and Marije. A couple living in the charismatic little town Hasselt, Netherlands. A lovely old and historic town surrounded by water.

Before you go on to read all of our blogs, we would like to tell you why we do what we do here at waterwefollow.

Rutger is a fanatic fisherman and he likes the search for new fishing spots where he could catch his predator fish. In his workingday-life he is a salesman of boats. Well more exactly, a salesman of fishing boats. So he is working with his hobby almost every single day, happy him!

Marije is a food-fanatic, loving the chase after special and not (yet) familiar places around the world. In her workingday-life she is a marketing business-adviser for a packaging producer. Mostly food- and beverage related, so everyday she finds new and nice food- or beverage products on her desk.

So you could say that we both have the change to be busy with our hobbies everyday. But, how about doing things together? Well, it was sometimes really hard for us to find some time together because we are both very busy with our work and hobbies.

That is why we tried to find a mood where we could as well enjoy each other, as enjoying our hobbies. We have asked one another what we liked most of all and how we could combine it. We both love to travel towards places we have never been before. But if we go somewhere, we always follow the water. Once we see water we both get instantly happy. And near that water you will always find the other ingredients we both love:

  • Fishing
  • Lovely restaurants
  • Interesting people
  • Traveling

Long story short: ‘Waterwefollow’ was born.

We now go chasing to new fishing spots together, meat interesting people over there and go hunting for new and lovely restaurants to explore in that area. We like to share these experiences with you via our blogs.

With these blogs we hope to inspire you with beautiful places we have seen, interesting people we have met, the nicest restaurants we have visited and some nice fishing spots. But most off all, to inspire you to seek a combination / balance of live where you will get very happy about as a couple together.

Happy waterfollowing!

Rutger & Marije
