About me

Hi! I’m Merel. I’m a Dutch travel enthusiast who started her own travel website in January 2016. ‘Mijn reiservaring’ means literally ‘My travel experience’ which summaries my website completely!

I’ve always loved traveling and I prefer to do it as much as possible. My greatest passion is to discover the world, but mainly to gain new experiences and to make new friends from all over the world.

Traveling has taught me to be less materialistic and to enjoy life to the fullest. Every new journey gives me a fantastic kick. I love to get to know other countries and cultures and to see how they can differ so much from each other.

On Mijnreiservaring website, I enjoy sharing my stories and my experiences with different destinations. Of course, this also includes the most useful tips that can make your trip a little easier.

I also love to photograph and make videos. I place these photos and travel videos in my articles, on Instagram and on YouTube.

In addition, cooking (and especially eating!) is a real hobby of mine. That’s why I also share the best travel recipes with you which I enjoyed very much during traveling.

Everyone needs a purpose and passion in life that will make that person happy. For me that’s traveling, discovering the world and inspiring others. ❤
