I travelled the world and the seven seas
Hi, I am Petra, travel fanatic and bon vivant.
My passion for travel began during family vacations to Switzerland and Italy, where, in the absence of modern devices, my brothers and I always chose to look outside the car window rather than read a book or play games. This sparked my adventurous spirit, leading me to explore all seven continents and over 60 countries. City trips are also popular!
Personal – off the beaten track
I have often deviated from the beaten track and well-known destinations. For example, I visited northern Alaska and a number of islands in the South Pacific, such as Easter Island and some islands of Fiji, the Cook Islands and French Polynesia.
In December 2018 I made my dream trip to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica. A wonderful adventure full of beautiful nature where I met special animals, such as leopard seals, crab eaters, elephant seals, fur seals, etc. and of course many, many penguins: no less than eight species and in some places groups of up to 300,000 king penguins. A dream come true for me personally!
I have gained experience with individual trips and group trips, with tours and city trips. And I made special trips, such as walking the Inca Trail, doing a trek in Nepal, etc.
I would like to share my passion, experience and knowledge with you.
On my website I would like to take you on a journey through my travel reports. Here you will find a sample trip from day to day based on my experiences and the sights I visited. For each country or city you will find a (separate) blog with tips and sights, information about the best time to travel, best places to sleep, etc.
I love drinks, trendy coffees and good food. That’s why I’ve listed my favorite restaurants, bars and coffee spots for you. Places where you can enjoy and relax, that are affordable, in a beautiful location, etc. In addition, enjoy the specials on my website, such as my blog about the climb of Mount Kinabalu on Malaysian Borneo, including a travel report and tips for the preparation and the climb itself. Or discover how to take a budget vacation in Aruba. Have fun!
On my website you will regularly find a link to the World Heritage List and other UNESCO heritage lists, emphasizing the importance of preserving our cultural and natural heritage, such as our beautiful Wadden Sea.
In the links you will find fun and interesting information. Who would have thought, for example, that the Argentine tango has been on UNESCO’s International Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2009?
Collaboration and support
I love writing content, photography, collecting travel information, advising others when choosing a trip, providing tips and connecting people when it comes to travel.
Are you interested in a collaboration with me? For example, as a travel organization, would you like to write a text on my travel blog or to advertise via my website? Would you like to know more about affiliate marketing, are you looking for more information or do you have any questions? Then look here: Collaboration and support!
