Hello, I’m Claire — an Amsterdam-based writer and travel blogger.

After moving to Madrid in 2014 to escape the horrendous British weather, I fell for a Dutch guy and ended up moving back to the grey skies of Northern Europe. By day, I earn my pennies working as a content specialist, and by night (or mainly at weekends) I can often be found cycling around the cobbled streets of Amsterdam, eating far too much and, of course, writing this blog. I also write on a freelance basis and have written for travel publications including Lonely Planet.

I like to travel as often as possible (don’t we all) and aim to visit somewhere new once a month, be it close to home or further afield. This site is a curated mishmash of travel tips, photo diaries, food-related musings, tales of expat life and everything in between.
