Hi! My name is Cynthia, 27 years old and from Amsterdam. I have a passion for dreaming, traveling and exploring. I love discovering something new every day. A new street I haven’t walked in, an amazing artist I hear for the first time or an interesting conversation I didn’t expect.
Traveling is one of the ways where new experiences are pretty much what happens all the time. My first big (solo) travel was when I was about 17 years old: I visited Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia & Singapore. From then on I was pretty much hooked! I simply loved the way I could feel totally free and I would meet new people everyday.
This addiction on travel recently turned into a new trip again, at the moment I am backpacking through South East Easia for 4 months, just completely immersing myself into all different cultures & experiences. Since about 1,5 years I started practicing more yoga and meditation and I have always been a fan of writing and photography. I want to take these months as an opportunity to experiment and practice more with all of those things, while also totally enjoying all the awesome views and people I meet along the way of course!
LIFE BAsed IN AMSTERDAM
When I am not traveling I am living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It is nice that now even in my ‘own’ country I feel like I can go on so many new adventures and really take the time to look around and see what is here. Whenever my family, friends, people on the street, people I meet at a party or any other place suggests me a place, I write it down. I make it my goal to visit and really experience a place for what it is. The atmosphere, the people, the food, the wine, the views.. everything.
Your true home is in the here and the now. It is not limited by time, space, nationality, or race. It is something you can touch and live in every moment - Thich Nhat Hanh (2006)I'd like to think of traveling and exploring as a way to discover your true home over and over again.
As I said before, I love to write and take photographs when I visit places. It helps me to remember and enjoy it over and over again. On this website you will find my discoveries, experiences and tips that I came across during my travels. At the moment it will be quite Asia-focused, including lots of photos, but in general its pretty much from all over the world. This could vary from a cute little restaurant in Amsterdam to the beautiful street art in Berlin or the most amazing beach in Cape Town. From the small romantic streets in the South of Italy to the night view from a rooftop bar in Thailand.
I love the excitement of finding places that give me a feeling of being on top of the world! Thanks again for visiting and when you have any tips and recommendations.. I would be super happy to hear them!
