My name is Hannah. I am a Dutch twenty-something, traveller, writer, photographer and a so called ‘Digital Nomad’.
For the past seven years, interrupted by my travels, I lived in Antwerp, where, unfortunately there is no beach close and where I finished my university degree in 2016. In my fourth year of University 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. So I decided to create a job that gives me that freedom to work from anywhere in the world.
Besides travelling, photographing and writing I am trying to maintain a sustainable lifestyle (reducing my use of plastic, eating vegan as often as possible, minimizing my flights) 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 , Belgium to Bali, without taking a single flight. It took me 9 months, 14 countries, a lot of courage and some stomachache but it was worth it.
From the 23th of March 2019 I’m travelling again, together with my boyfriend who I met after I got back in Belgium in 2017. Keep an eye out on the website to follow our new adventures!
About 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 are looking for inspiration to make your (travel) dreams come true, or you want to know real travel stories, please get lost on blog and you might find what you are looking for! My goal is to inspire you by sharing my track: 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 to finally take the step and go for their dream trip, I will be a very happy girl!
Get lost and don’t stop dreaming!
Die with memories, not dreams
