Hello! I am Michiel, born and raised in the Netherlands. I have a big passion for traveling and photography.
I love traveling to all kinds of places, from hiking to waterfalls in Indonesia, scuba diving in the beautiful coral reefs of Belize, to camping at an altitude of 4000m in Kyrgyzstan.
At the age of 19, I went abroad for the first time all one for an exchange semester and internship in Hong Kong. While studying business I realised that there was something else that I love learning too: languages. Shorty after thatI went to Taiwan where I stayed for one year to focus fully on studying Mandarin Chinese.
After returning to The Netherlands I worked in the office, but the travel bug caught me. A few years later I took six months to pursue another dream: going on a long solo backpacking trip. I spent three months in South-East Asia, mainly in Vietnam and Indonesia. After that I spent three months in Central-America, of which six weeks in Guatemala where I started learning Spanish while living at a local host family.
By the end of 2018 I made a big chance in my life and decided I would like to have the experience to travel the world as a flight attendant. I am now working for one of the world’s leading airlines based in Dubai, which is where I’ve been based ever-since. The job has been given me the opportunity to visit more places than I could ever imagine.
Along the way I always carry my camera(s). Well, except for that backpacking trip in South-East Asia where I wanted to travel extra light. If you are interested in purchasing one of my photos as a print, you can have a look at my Print Shop.
I created this website in 2016 to share travel tips, experiences, photos and stories. Unfortunately I haven’t been as active as I was hoping to for a while, however I recently I have a lot of inspiration and ideas for posts and articles to write. Hopefully you will enjoy visiting my website! If you have any comments, ideas or suggestions, feel free to contact me.
