Welcome to Traveling Dutchie!

There are a gazillion travel blogs and websites on the internet. At least. So thank you for landing here in my little corner of the world wide web! Traveling Dutchie is a passionate traveler who frequently leaves his home base in the city of Leiden, The Netherlands, to explore the world.

Are you suffering from wanderlust? Looking for travel inspiration? Traveling Dutchie is more than a travel blog. It’s the place for captivating travelogues, beautiful pictures, interesting background information, practical tips and helpful advice. Ad-free. Affiliate-free. Cookie-free.

Our planet and its inhabitants have so much to offer, so many incredibly beautiful places to visit, experience and enjoy. Whether it’s soaring mountains or vast deserts, different cultures or historic cities, Traveling Dutchie believes nothing beats the experience to go out and explore all this beauty. To stand in awe, be impressed, be moved or just simply enjoy.

The saying goes that the world is a book and those who do not travel read only the first page, and I agree. Traveling broadens your scope and alters your perspective on the world. And it’s great fun of course. You only live once – or as some people say: you only die once but you live every day. So go, discover and enjoy!

Check out the About page for more info about me and this website. Or start browsing my travelogues, in which you will find plenty of inspiration, historic backgrounds, fun facts and helpful tips. New posts are added regularly, so please visit again. Or even better: subscribe to receive new posts from Traveling Dutchie in your e-mail!

Oh and if my English sounds a bit rusty… bear with me, it’s not my native language – I’m Dutch remember? 🙂 – and translation tools are not flawless either. I’m working on improvements.
