Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting our blog! The fact you’re reading this is probably because you’re wondering ‘Who is Passport in One Hand?’ Well…

We are Laura and Nicolas, a 90s couple from Ghent, Belgium. In October 2018, we made a decision that would change our lives forever. We left our comfy life behind us and took a leap into the unknown. With our ‘passport in one hand’ and our camera in the other, we hopped on the plane to our dream life.


We started taking pictures during our travels in Asia and started an Instagram page. Our goal with our Instagram page (@laurandnicolas) is to inspire others to live their dream life, to show that anything is possible. But most of all, we want to spread love and positivity. We want to make you dream, even if it’s just for that one minute that you see our photo and read our caption.


A few months later we decided that something was missing and we decided to create a blog as well! This blog was created not only to inspire, but to help you plan your next trip. You will find travel guides of the places that we have explored, hotel reviews, tips and tricks to make your travels easier, our favourite travel gear, fashion must-haves, and so much more.


A year after we started traveling, we grew a little tired of the still images on our Instagram and the text on our blog. We wanted moving images, sound and emotion, so we decided to start a YouTube channel. We started making vlogs and give an insight in our daily lives.

If you have questions about anything, you can always send us a DM on Instagram or email us and we will be happy to help!

This is just the beginning… What’s next? And more importantly: where to next?

Lots of love,
Laura & Nicolas

    Hello! I just discovered you through your van videos and I subscribed. Your van is perfection on wheels! As you gave the tour, I became interested in your diets, ie. I also would live on lattes 🙂. I’m not a big cook so curious about your smoothies and what you eat on a daily basis when you’re traveling in it. It would perhaps be video-worthy? Thank you for sharing your lives! Your travels, and photography, and fashion, etc are so beautifully presented. I’m hoping to get on the road myself in a couple years.

      Thanks for the kind words, Lisa! That’s actually a great idea! We’ll try and make a video out of that soon! Love <3
