Hi there! I’m Emma, paralegal and college student with a love for travels, who is yet to figure out her next move in life. Born and raised in the small country Belgium, where I have been living now for 22 years. From the moment I was born my parents took me cross-border on their journeys in Europe. I guess the wanderlust-bug was passed to me through my genes. Meanwhile, the family trips have expanded to journeys of my own. My personal climax so far was my backpacking trip to the USA, a destination I have been dreaming of for many years. I pushed my own boundaries, by being outside of Europe and in the air for the first time.
So why this blog? Well…
I like to pass my time in a creative manner. I’ve played violin for ten years and am currently enrolled in art classes. This is my little space, where I can share my (very) random thoughts, travels, pictures, recipes, you name it.
Other than that, I must say I am quite the introvert (read very very introvert). Writing is a way to express myself, and I prefer to do it somewhat anonymous. It’s the contradiction between sharing a piece of you with anyone out there, yet keeping it incognito.
To finish off, I’m also a very anxious person (I have an anxiety disorder). Traveling, meaning new places, people, and lots of surprises, contains quite a lot of things that trigger my anxieties. It’s not always easy to set these anxious thoughts aside, but I try to make it work as good as I can.
I hope you enjoy this blog and because I do love quotes here’s one for you:
“DON’T BE AFRAID OF YOUR FEARS. THEY’RE NOT THERE TO SCARE YOU. THEY’RE THERE TO LET YOU KNOW THAT SOMETHING IS WORTH IT.”
