A short article about myself

Welcome to my travel blog!

I am a twenty-two year-old girl, born in Germany but currently based in the UK, who is slightly obsessed with exploring the depths that this wonderful world has to offer. A curator of passport stamps, I find a thrill in sleeping a little and doing a lot.

Hence my multicultural name, Maria Victoria Hanako van Straaten, I have blood from three different continents running through my DNA, therefore it cannot be my fault that travelling ought to be running through my veins.

On my blog, I discuss my travels to the recent destinations and my experiences being in the given country. I also share some tips and tricks I find useful to help all my fellow travellers. I am new to the blogging world, so every little helps, so please don’t be afraid to comment and show me some love! I appreciate every word you have to say.

I enjoy sharing experiences others would like to know about, and great obscure destinations many don’t think or know about visiting. As previously stated my passion is sharing ideas and travelling and helping others on the way to becoming epic versions of themselves while experiencing the thrill of adventure.

Alongside conquering my goal of visiting all the countries in the world, my other passion is writing fiction. Being a travelling fictionist has allowed me to gather inspiration from different cultures, traditions and people that I have met along my journeys. I like to look at the world as an outsider peeking in, creating both utopian and dystopian settings, regarding socioeconomic factors and giving them a positive or negative twist. I am currently in the process of rewriting my debut novel, and I hope to reveal it to my audience very soon.

I still have a large majority of the world to conquer, as majority of my trips reside within Europe with a few of my passport stamps being from South America. Hopefully, I’ll be blessed even further with visiting many more wonders of the world, as the world does not lack in wonder! Feel free to share any content on my blog with your family and friends, allowing everybody to catch the travelling bug and to visit more countries, learn more culture and share exciting experiences with everyone else in the world.

  2. Hi Maria,
    I see you have visited Italy but have you ever visited Abruzzo? It’s often overlooked by tourists because the region is not well-know. We’re not far from Rome and we have mountains and beaches. It’s truly a remarkable area. I live in Sulmona, which is one of the oldest towns in the area and home to the Latin poet Ovid, as well as confetti (sugared almonds) and arrosticini (barbecued lamb skewers). If you ever get the chance to come back to Italy, I highly recommend checking it out 🙂
