My name is Hannah. I am a Dutch twenty-something, crazy about travelling, telling stories and catching moments with my camera. That’s why I started this blog. If you are looking for a list of do’s and don’ts about backpacking, or full reports about hostels or travel agencies… you’re not in the right place, but if you want to know real travel stories, please get lost on my blog and you might find what you are looking for! My goal is to share my track with you: the stories about the people I meet, the places I visit and the things I learn about life on the way. For me, that is where travelling stands for: living with my whole heart, following dreams and continuously learning. If I can only inspire one person with something I share, I will be more than happy.
Except from travelling, photographing and writing I also really like chocolate … and working out (which comes in handy if you love chocolate as much as I do…). Besides chocolate, you can always seduce me with a cup of coffee or a nice party where I can dance all night. I love meeting new people and can be very social and talkative! But I also like to be alone sometimes. I try to meditate everyday and if I want to work out and calm down at the same time I go for a run, a hike or a tour on my bike: I plug in my headphones and just go somewhere. Or just leave me on the beach where I will fall in love with the sunrise and the sunset every single time.
For the past five years, I lived in Antwerp, where, unfortunately there is no beach close and where I finished my university degree. In my fourth year I participated in an exchange program through which I was able to live in Sydney, Australia for five months. I fell in love with the feeling of total freedom I had while being away from ‘home’ and meeting new people from all over the world. Ever since I wanted to go back to that feeling, wherever that is.
I try to maintain a sustainable lifestyle (reducing my use of plastic, eating vegan as often as possible etc.) and I know travelling is not always in line with that. That’s why, in 2016, I challenged myself to travel over land from Antwerp towards Australia. Without taking a single flight. Even though I ‘only’ made it to Bali, it was the best thing I’ve ever done. It took me 9 months, 14 countries, a lot of courage and some stomachache but it was worth it.
I am currently back in Antwerp, but I keep dreaming, so keep on following my journey because this isn’t over yet.
Die with memories, not dreams
