About Us

A LIFESTYLE OF TRAVELING WITH A FAMILY, DREAMING, MAKING KIDS FEEL LIKE KIDS, PLACES WE RECOMMEND AND WHAT KEEPS US GOING.

About our family; For those who don’t know me; my name is Deidre, born in the Netherlands and 26 years old. I like culture, fashion, traveling, nature and last but not least my own family. I’m in love with my soulmate. Together we have a sweet ‘monkey’ named Jay. In my home country the Netherlands, I have worked as customer service agent at a big insurance company until the 1st of May.  I would love to have a simpler life and be more in contact with nature. Because my love has family in Australia, we now have the opportunity to go on an adventure. On May 18th we are going on a big journey, we start with a few weeks of Bali and then we are going to Australia. We have planned our stay in Bali, but the trip to Australia is still yet to be planned. A few days with my loves family but then we have to find something for ourselves. That’s going to be a challenge but I see so many opportunities to develop myself as a person. With this adventure I’m hoping to teach Jay that opportunities in life won’t come easy and you have to grab them. Keep believing in dreams, they can lead you the way to keep you going and grow in life. Daily life in the Netherlands is going really fast and the reason for our journey is to slow down for a few months. We want to spend more time together with our little family. 

About Blue Eyes and Coconuts; Blue Eyes and Coconuts is a lifestyle and travel site created and written by Deidre and with a bit off creatief help from Jay. We would like to show, share and discuss a lifestyle of traveling with a family, dreaming, making kids feel like kids, places we recommend and what keeps us going. Nearly every photo is self-made and stories real. Because life just begins when you get kids.
