Switzerland | 2018

Switzerland | 2018

Being scheduled for a surgery late 2018 made me realise I would be stuck at home and in the Netherlands for several months. I figured why not explore a new country in Europe? And that's how I ended up travelling through Switzerland by train (first class.. that is!).

Austria | 2016, 2017 & 2019

Austria, my most visited country in the world. It always feels like coming home... driving on the German Autobahn and the first peaks of the Alps start being visible. Whether it is for hiking in summer, or skiing in winter: Austria is awesome.

An American Road Trip | 2015

A one-of-a-kind adventure. Whilst at work at my travel agency job I saw an ad for a relocation special with a motorhome from the factory in Middlebury, IN, to San Francisco, CA. I hit up a friend and he wanted to join. The trip was booked two days later.

My High School Year | 2009-2010

After finishing secondary school in the Netherlands at the age of 16, I was given the opportunity to spend a year abroad. Ever since watching the Lord of the Rings as a kid with my dad in the cinema in Utrecht, I had always wanted to visit the Land of the Long White Cloud..
