Who am I?

About me…

My name is Emma, a 23 years-young law student. Born and raised in Belgium, but currently studying abroad in the Netherlands. I’m a complete wallflower/introvert who enjoys to observe the world around her. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and baking (I have a weakness for anything sweet), not doing anything at all, but above else I have a great passion for travel .

3 random facts:

  • I think dessert should come first.
  • I love quotes:

    “Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know something is worth it.”-C. Joybell and “Nothing will work unless you do” – Maya Angelou.

  • I am lazy when it comes to makeup.

About the blog…

Once upon a time, on a boring evening in May 2016, I decided to jump into the blogging world, and that is how “Curlygirlabroad” was born. In first instance it was intended as an occupancy to keep busy, but I must admit I kinda started loving it. The introvert in me is often worried about sharing her thoughts with others, that is why I chose to write in a semi-anonymous manner.

    1. Beautiful country. I will go back one day. We are going to France next year in 2017 and 2018 to Spain and Portugal. Maybe in 2019 will do France and Belgium. To travel from Australia it takes so long. Would love to live in Belgium xx

  3. You are a postgraduate(about to be) in international law and you travel, so consider it just as an advise and if you like it, use it, write a place you have been to and then certain no to do things if you don’t want to be on wrong side of law. Every place has a unique culture and certain ethics/rules/law needs to followed and at times a tourist , a traveller may miss that.

    I think your audience would like that and the traffic to Your site is bound to increase.

  7. You’ve been following me for a while now I think and your support on my facebook page is so sweet of you!! I thought I was already following your blog, but that wasn’t true (I’m so sorry). I was wondering, if you’re from Belgium, do you speak Dutch? Love
