Chris | Wereldreizigers.nl

World traveler in heart and soul and owner of this website. I love to travel and before I met Wereldreizigers.nl already started running a personal travel blog. I dream about new destinations 365 days a year.

At the beginning of 2020 I accidentally stumbled upon Wereldreizigers.nl. The domain name had existed since 2014, but no real work had been done on it until 2020. Shame! So I decided to contact the owner of the website. It took several months but we finally got out, Wereldreizigers.nl was acquired!

After a year of hard work, a completely new website was created, ready for the future. I decided to consult my network and contacted other travel enthusiasts to ask if they wanted to participate in this project. After all, the website is called 'World Travelers' in plural, so it goes without saying that this should also become the place for world travelers to share their stories.

– Currently somewhere in the world, because it is impossible to keep up.
– Next dream destination: Japan
– Stubborn and bold
– Life is short, make it beautiful!

From an early age I have been fascinated by distant travels and other cultures. Seen many a country, but certainly not finished yet! At this age (32) I often think about how to further organize my life. When I travel, I quickly let go of that and can enjoy the here and now to the fullest…

At home I have a job in youth care. Last year I took a year-long sabbatical to go on an adventure with my husband Chris and the camper in the US and Canada and for dessert, travel in southern Africa.

Danny van der Meijden | Travel and Travel Tips

I made my first long-distance trip when I was just 8 years old, to Tunisia. Later I wanted to see more of the world, so I traveled to Mexico in 2006. I slowly became infected with the travel virus. Every year I had a long trip planned and I was making city trips more and more often. For a school project I bundled my photos and stories on a site. At that moment I never expected that this would be the start of Travel & Travel Tips. Since 2015, I have been investing more time in my travel blog and traveling more often. Nowadays I am on the road almost every month and discover new destinations.

– Likes to visit destinations that are not very well known
– Loves the combination of cities and nature
– Great lover of Germany
– Likes to taste local beers
– Favorite destination is Patagonia. Or Bolivia or Costa Rica or Kyrgyzstan or...
