About Me


I am a 26 year old male from The Netherlands. I have travelled through Europe with my parents until I was 16 and from then on mostly on my own. 

I have lived in Cape Town, South Africa, for 6 months. From that moment on I started traveling (backpacking). I have been to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru in the last 4 years.

Hi, I am traveling through Argentina and Chile and the end of this year. I have my plans for Argentina sorted out for the most part but from Mendoza on, I'm still a bit clueless as most travel tips for Chile focus on Patagonia. Patagonia is beautiful, however, I would... See More
