    Post-lockdown travel ideas and trends

    Travelling is not over. The Covid-19 crisis opens new ways of tourism, bringing us back to nature, closer to our families and friends, and most important: closer to ourselves. I have been preaching about camping, vanlife, road trips and solo travelling for years. It is exciting to see that this all will soon become a reality and many, who maybe never really thought about travelling in that way, will start to do it. In this post, I share with you some post-lockdown travel ideas and trends.

    Travelling couple is not brave

    This is going to be an arrogant post I have been on this solo one-way ticket trip for 16 months. Before that, I have been travelling solo through different continents, for weeks or months. In total, I have travelled to 53 countries and to 2/3 of them just on my own. The couple in the supermarket I have been in a supermarket not so long ago, and I saw a couple who travels through Australia by a van, similarly to me.

    Three types of men you (as a woman) will meet when you travel

    I have experienced different types of men on my road and I can classify them in three main groups. Note, that this classification happens only after they asked those 3 questions: What’s your name? Where are you from?

I mean, he will not ask that openly: ‘let’s have sex’ (it may also happen), but most commonly he will ask like this: “let’s have fun together!” Or: ‘let’s go to the shower’, or…

    Having (no) country

    This post is about the thought that I constantly have when I travel: it is about me having no country. Have you ever thought about it? Leave a comment at the button of this page! Where am I from? ‘Where are you from?’ – it seems like the simplest question in the world, however when I get this question, my brain starts to work on a few things, before I can answer.

And second, I’m making sure,…
