WANDER (wan·der) / verb (no object): to ramble without a definite purpose or objective; roam, rove, or stray. To go aimlessly, indirectly, or casually; meander.

If there is any verb in the English language that describes me best, it must just have to be this. In Dutch I would rephrase it towards ‘slipperen’, but that’s not really a verb… It relates to changing my high heels for flipflops and just go. Lost with purpose…
… short term, long term
… backpacking, leisure, business, trekking, city trips (and everything in between)
… mentally or physically
For me, being in a beautiful place and learn is more than observing what’s before my eyes. The experience of beauty is an emotional one, brought about through context; there’s the people you’re with, or the people you’re not with; there’s your mood, where you are in life. So, let’s find some beautiful place to wander, learn and get lost – my favorite start of the day.
I’m Yvette, a part-time traveler and full-time travel obsessive, always curious for what’s around the corner.
Until I get myself together and write a few words about myself (more than the above), you can meet me in the travel stories and blog posts. I hope they will now and then put a smile on your face and maybe even inspire you to wander, explore, dream and discover yourself.
