5 destinations in nature I would love to visit

Last year I discovered my love for nature. Almost by accident. My ideal travel destination used to be a big city with crowded hostels. I wanted to be surprised by the stories of strangers and perhaps delighted by a bite of food that was unfamiliar. Over the years, I have travelled to many bustling destinations. Often alone, but always in search of company. But last year something changed. I had booked a few days in a hotel in the Atlas Mountains (mainly because the hotel looked very nice). And it was in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains that I found a space for quiet contemplation that is unreachable for me in its urban counterparts. Now I want more of these encounters. More nature. More solitude. More beauty. So today I am sharing five destinations I would love to visit in nature.

One of those sappy love stories

I should preface this love story by saying that its date of publication is purely strategic. I have never celebrated Valentines Day. (The only time a boy ever asked me to be his Valentine was two weeks after I had dumped him. Yes. I know.) Although my boyfriend and I will not celebrate the 14th of February in any way, I did want to spend a little time on my blog to celebrate our love story. Because it is a great one. All biases aside, I think we may have stumbled upon the very thing some people spend a lifetime searching for.

Where am I from? | The woes of being a third culture kid

I am from nowhere. Not be confused with I am nowhere. Because, of course, I am somewhere. Currently, I am in England. But I am not from England. (Well, not really.) In the past, I was in The Netherlands. And I was from The Netherlands. (Well, not really.) You see, that ‘where from’ wasn't really true. Saying I was from The Netherlands was an easy way out of a question that was never easy to begin with. I am a third culture kid. And ever since I left my adoptive country about five years ago, I have been spending way to much time asking myself where I am from.
