About John

Welcome to my travel blog! I’m John, and I’m thrilled you’ve decided to join me on my journey.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, I’m a Dutch native with a global heart. My life’s adventure began in Amsterdam, a city known for its vibrant culture and picturesque canals. Living there has instilled in me a deep appreciation for history, art, and the joy of exploring new places.

My travels took an exciting turn when I moved to Boston, specifically Cambridge. This historic city, steeped in academia and rich in American heritage, was a whole new world for me. And don’t worry, despite living in Massachusetts, I assure you I’m not a “Masshole”! My time in Boston was a blend of learning, exploring, and embracing a new culture.

Now, I find myself back in the Netherlands, residing in the charming city of Haarlem. Just a stone’s throw from Amsterdam, Haarlem offers a unique blend of old-world charm and modern vibrancy, making it an ideal base for my adventures.

Through this blog, I aim to share my experiences, tips, and stories from my travels around the world. Whether it’s navigating the bustling streets of Amsterdam, exploring the academic atmosphere of Cambridge, or enjoying the quaint beauty of Haarlem, I’m here to bring you along on my journey.

Join me as I explore the world, one city at a time!
