WHAT CAN THE TRAVEL TESTER HELP YOU WITH?
Are you someone who is always looking to get the most out of their travels? Do you believe that the journey doesn’t have to stop when you come back home? Would you like to create memorable experiences and are you searching for ways to incorporate lessons learned on the road into every aspect of your life? All while making a positive impact on the planet? Then you’re in the right place!
First of all, nice to meet you. I’m Nienke (neen-kuh – but don’t worry if you still can’t pronounce it) and sometimes you’ll also see my boyfriend Nick join me here on the blog. We met in a hostel Australia in 2008 and since then lived in Sydney, London and are currently based in my hometown Amsterdam. Somewhere in between, we travelled to over 40 countries on 5 continents…
As a multi-passionate person, I’ve learned to match my interests (culture, history, food, design, innovation, space, creativity, self-growth, nature and planet care) with activities on my travels and would love to share my advice with you in preparation of your next adventures. You might not guess it, but I’m a former primary school teacher and education is my passion! Learning new things and passing the knowledge on is what truly drives me. Blogging since 2005, I’ve also got a few tips to share if you’d like to know what’s going on behind the scenes of a travel blog and perhaps even start blogging as a business.
Start by checking out the archive of travel guides, travel at home section and reviews. Also make sure to sign up for my (semi-regular) digital postcards to stay in the loop and check out my shop to find the best travel gear and travel-related home decor items. If there is anything you’d like to ask me, make sure to reach out. Looking forward to help you get the most out of your trip… and yourself!
Talk to you soon, Nienke
