  • BIG NEWS! Short version: I quit my job and apartment to travel the world fulltime as a professional adventurer!
.
.
Long version:
The past years have seen me travel a lot more. Not just because I wanted to have stories to tell you guys, but also because the dream has been maturing and slowly becoming a reality in preparation of a plan that has been cooking for a long, long time now:
.
.
I’ve quit my rent and said farewell to my life in the Netherlands to travel the world fulltime as a freelance travel writer, while simultaneously growing my website into something bigger and better. This might take me years if I'm successful, so get ready for a steady stream of hiking stories, trail guides and tales of faraway places and people!
.
.
As a travel writer I'll be focusing mainly on eco- and sustainable tourism, hiking and off-the-beaten-path travel destinations. So basically everything Beat The Trail is all about!
.
.
Want to help? Yes please!
.
.
Tell all your friends about Beat The Trail. Check in on the website often. Follow me on both Instagram and Facebook (in case you didn't already). Share my articles on every media outlet known to man. And maybe ask me how I'm doing every now and then 🙃. Small (or large) donations for a beer or cup of tea are always welcome of course!
.
.
Thank you guys for following, and maybe we'll see each other one of these days!

  • With winter rearing its icy head again, I felt it was time to post an article on my winter hike in the Spanish Sierra Nevada last January. I also really need to work on my tardiness in posting seasonal articles... .

  • After a few days in the Prenj mountainrange I spent a day relaxing at Musafir hostel in Konjic. The place had been built as a guesthouse during the Ottoman era, and has recently been repurposed as a hostel. .
Sitting below a canopy of grapevines with Herzegovian wine and barbeque on the way, I couldn't remember the last time I had such an iconic ending to a trip. See you soon, Bosnia!
