How Itchy Boots was started? (Motorcycle Adventures)
Noraly graduated with a master’s of science degree in geochemistry when she was only 23 years old.
After she received her degree Noraly Schoenmaker travelled to Australia to collect the rock samples that she needed for her PhD research which was going to start as soon as she went back to the Netherlands.
However, everything turned out differently and was completely against her intended schedule.
After successfully collecting her rock samples she felt the need to travel a little bit more before returning back to the Netherlands.
She decided to explore Australia and after that found herself in New Zealand and in India.
When she was in India Noraly realized that pursuing a career in science wasn’t her thing anymore and all she wanted was to travel and explore the world further.
She immediately cancelled her PhD research and decided to continue travelling across the globe.
After a couple of months, she found herself in Indonesia with exactly 100 euros left in her bank account.
Noraly didn’t know how she could raise quick cash to keep travelling so she flew back to Perth to figure it all out.
While in Perth she ended up working in the mining industry as an exploration geologist for about six months and she was able to make a significant amount of cash from her job.
When she realized that she had saved up enough money she quit her job and left Australia immediately.
She backpacked solo through Central America, South East Asia, East Africa, and South America. 2 years after that, she had spent all the money she had saved up and was completely broke, homeless and jobless. This time around, she couldn’t go back to Australia, she had to go back home to the Netherlands.
Luckily, when she got there, she got a job for an international dredging company, where Noraly worked on several dredging projects all over the world for 5 years.
This time around she had to be very careful with her spending.
She was very pleased by the fact that she could travel and work at the same time.
In the middle of all these, she was carried away and felt the need to become a full-time traveller once again so in 2018 she quit her job, sold her house and booked a one-way flight to India and never looked back.
