About me

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

That first single step brought me to Ghana when I was 18 years old. Fresh out of highschool, I had the urge to leave Holland and do something usefull. So I decided I wanted to help the unfortuned children in Afrika. You can’t get it more cliche than that! After 4,5 months of cultureshocks, being homesick, laughing, having fun and of course discovering the country, I came back home. My mom moved while I was away so I never really had the real feeling of coming home..

Which caused that urge to travel to come back. So there I went again. This time it was Australia. The original plan was to go there for 4 or 5 months. But when after 3 months my money ran out, me and the friends I met there decided to go work on a farm for 3 months to save up some money and earn our 2nd year visa. All in all, I travelled through Australia for a total of 10 months and had the best time of my life.

All that travelling made me realise what I really like to do and where my passion lies; Travelling! So it must not be a surprise that I am actually studying Tourism at the moment. I realised that it now really was time to get an education to have a foundation for the future.

I am following an international program, where they encourage you to go abroad for your work experience. You choose a country, contact one of the companies the school offers you and there you go! Last semester brought me to Indonesia, this semester I decided to go to Scotland. From the heat to the cold, I still don’t know what I was thinking considering the weather..

If you have any questions/suggestions about the blog, me or one of the countries I have visited so far, feel free to contact me. I am more than happy to answer your questions!

Have fun,

  1. So wonderful that you have figured out so early in life what it is you like to do. And kudos to your family for not holding you back – it’s tough for a lot of parents to let their kids take off for such far-flung places, but those that do have happier kids:)

    • Thank you! I am really greatfull my family supports me and realise how lucky I am! I have to say, I still find it hard to get on that plane and leave for a long time, but it is worth it!

  2. Hi Kyley!

    Thanks again for checking out my blog! I think you and I have similar passions when it comes to travelling – I cannot imagine my life without it as well. Looking forward to reading about your adventures 🙂


  3. Thank you Kyley, I appreciate your visit and dropping by. I am sure there is a lot to learn while we travel and there are endless journeys we make. We just need it once in life to get started with this addiction and it never ends. I love travelling and shall be following you now to share your journeys, experiences and share some of my not so adventurous but still adventures of life.

    All the best for the future and if you happen to be in London or down south feel free to catch up. If I happen to be riding up north which usually happens when I am too bored with life – I will come by see you.
