About me


Hello dear reader,

My name is Kristel. A girl born and raised in The Netherlands where the weather is never reliable and we live below sea level. You might have heard of Amsterdam, tulips, Vincent Van Gogh and Coffee Shops. Yes, all of them are from my little country.

I have been blogging since April 2011. Inspired by some Singaporean bloggers I made my first post about Miyavi’s concert. He is a Japanese artist who gave a concert in The Netherlands. If you are curious about it, you can check it out HERE. Bare in mind that my English was on the horrible side back then, haha.

I started to realized how enjoyable writing could be. Writing thoughts and experiences and sharing them with whoever wants to read. It became a habit, a part of my life. Throughout those years I got to know myself better. Not only did my writing skills improve, but I’m finally at a point where I am figuring out what I want to write about. Yes it took me three years..

Who am I?

My life has become more meaningful ever since I began to question my habits and knowledge. It brought me to a place where I am happier and worry less. I am a passionate vegan with a minimalist lifestyle that loves experiencing and learning. A girl who wants to live like she gives a f*ck, travel the world and meet new people. I love Japan, photography, cosplay, writing, reading, drawing, moving my body and food.

“The unexamined life is not worth living” – Socrates

I want to make the best out of my life. I want to thrive, accomplish my own goals, discover how to love unconditionally and be kind to others. I want to stop living in the comfort zone and grow each day. Improve myself. Starting by living my life in the now. Starting by examining my life. It will come with ups and downs. But sometimes you win, sometimes you learn. I will find comfort in discomfort and keep on going.

So this is me in a nutshell and what my blog will be about. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

    What are your goals in life, if you have any? I’ve watched some of your videos and just curious in what you do for a living in the Netherlands and how you make time for the videos. It’s hard not to pay attention with that cute accent and beautiful looks.
