I am a 24-year-old traveller with a love of documenting the world around me.
Born to Dutch and German parents, raised in the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada and currently living in New Zealand, I crave to see more of the world. This international upbringing and nomadic lifestyle - my first flight was aged 3 months and my first solo international flight was not much later at age 7 - has led to a deep-rooted lust for new places and adventure and I fully intend to seek out every country in the world.
Early on we spoke German at home, while other languages filtered in from where we were living and from what I was taught at schools there. I have a global education, I devour books (take a peek at the book list I've started here) and I embrace the nuances of each new place, becoming less attached to any singular space and more restless for travel. The freedom I find in travel drives me to translate what I discover on those journeys into the pictures and words you find here.
I graduated from university in 2016 and worked for nearly three years to save up for my current dream of backpacking around the world. So far I have experienced 25/262 countries (see where I got that number here) in my goal to visit every single one in the world using my expansive bucket list as a guide.
