Pleased to meet you! I am Naomi, a genuine traveler, wanderer and explorer from the Netherlands, with a special love for authenticity, while keeping it chic. I like to keep it real and try to share my traveling experiences in the most honest and authentic way!

I have a huge passion for traveling, a natural lust for exploring, a heart for holidays and an eye for beautiful things which I love to capture on camera. Oh yeah and I love social media, hats and a bit of luxury once in a while:)

I created this site because I love photography, story telling and online marketing, but mainly to share my passion for travel and give real advice and tips based on my own experiences and honest opinion. I do this by sharing many of my own pictures in my blog posts with lots of travel tips where to go and what to see.

At the age of 36 I have now traveled 33 countries, the rest is still on my list!

During my travels I value authenticity but at the same time I also like to keep it chic, what do I mean by this?

To me traveling authentic chic means that each holiday or while traveling I try to find elegant accommodations which are comfortable, original and have a special story. Mostly luxurious, but also for the best value for money. A tricky combination, but nevertheless possible. You don’t have to be a backpacker to go off the beaten path! And you don’t have to stay in hostels or low budget accommodations while exploring your destination…

As I am curious by nature I always explore each country for their heritage and all the sights it has to offer. But after some years of backpacking I now prefer to do this in a comfortable way with a touch of luxury. And I love to share my tips and experiences on how to do this with like minded travelers.
