My name is Milana and I grew up in a small town in the south of the Netherlands. Where I used to only be able to dream of traveling, I’ve grown up to see more than I could have ever hoped for!
Somehow I managed to travel to all continents by the time I was 25. I worked and studied abroad in a bunch of countries, and simply went backpacking in some others. I’ve met amazing people along the way, and some crazy ones, too. I’ve learned a few languages. I did things I never thought I would dare to do. From that small town girl, I feel like I turned into a ‘citizen of the world’ – something that some of us nowadays have the privilege of becoming…
It didn’t always come easy! Instead of keeping my experiences to myself, I figured that what I’ve learned along the way may be useful for others. I’m hoping that you’ll also laugh at some of my anecdotes. What I’ve been up to is definitely not extraordinary – but hopefully entertaining, and possibly inspiring.
But this section is not just about me. What would I do without my other half, who is not only my boyfriend, but my adventurous travel partner, my technical back up, and part of all of my future plans. His name is Jean Pascal (I like to call him JP), he comes from Mauritius – the tropical paradise in the Indian Ocean. We met because we were lucky enough to work together on a ship, and after (!) we booked a ticket to Madagascar because we wanted to explore the place, we decided that we want to continue traveling together for hopefully a lifetime.
Here I will share our dreams and experiences – and hopefully get to read some of yours, in return!
