I was just heading out…
Time to head out of my comfort zone and into the world
How I became a travel blogger
After a year of basically staying put, I felt restless, stressed, bored, unfulfilled. So I made a resolution. That as of 2017 I would not let a lack of travel buddies keep me from exploring the world. That I would get out of my comfort zone and into the big, wild world. Because there is so much world to see.
And despite the initial fear, I have now, two year later, been to some pretty cool places. You can see a somewhat comprehensive list to your right. And I plan to add many more in the future. So I thought it would be a good idea to share my exploring of the world with the world. Here you can find my tips on things to do and things to eat in the places I’ve visited as well as things to know about travel in general. Basically, everything I’ve seen, done, eaten and learned, so that you can make the best out of your next trip.

Living as a digital nomad
Since starting this adventure my life has completely changed. I’ve gone from a post-grad quarter-life crisis to starting my own business as a freelance writer. While backpacking through Europe and South East Asia I had my cliché ‘a-ha’ moment. I met some people working remotely as writers, something I had never realized was an option.
So instead of looking for a job and settling down when I got home, I did the complete opposite. I gave up my apartment and I’m taking this show on the road, indefinitely, as a digital nomad. Head first into the unknown, so come along for the adventure!
Work with me
After all I’ve done and seen in the past two years, I consider myself something of a “travel expert”. Especially when it comes to solo female travel and budget backpacking. If you enjoy my writing and are looking for quality travel content in either Dutch or English for your own publication, I have some good news! You can hire me as a freelance writer. In fact, several people have already done so:
