Hi Dreamer,


As a lot of you might have seen, I AM IN A MAGAZINE! The Dutch magazine VERTREKNL put out an issue about Australia and emigrations and I’m in it!



For this issue they invite several companies and people to share their story. Visa4You, the company that helped me make my move happen, had a few pages to fill up and asked me.

Last year when I was at an event of Visa4You, I told you about that here, I was asked to write a little story about my experiences with Visa4You. I wrote a few things down and had a photo taken. I never expected my photo to be half a page big at that point! But look, this is it:

The blue box contains my story and I translated it, in case anyone is wondering what it actually says:

English version

Last year Michelle de Vries made the decision to start her emigration- and visaprocess. She left for Australia in December 2016 and is there on a temporary visa. Right now, Visa4You is also finishing up on her permanent visa-application.
“The process of emigration takes a lot of time and money, which you will find out during the period of preparation. The question is: What are you prepared to do to make your dream come true? My answer: everything. It is the rest of your life we are talking about! In my case, Visa4You took the chaotic part of the emigrationprocess away. I know my options and my to do’s. And guess what, I’m in sunny Australia right now.”

And guess what, I really am! I hope this inspires every single one of you to follow your dreams and do what you are meant to do. And believe me, it isn’t all highs and it isn’t easy, but trust me if I say every bump in the road is worth it. I made my dream come true, I moved to Australia, what about you?


Lots of love,
