It’s been forever. That first.

Second. I’ve been working my a** off. I’ve got a new trip planned and I’m super excited to go! In the beginning of April 2018 I’ll be flying to San Francisco and from there I’ll be road tripping around the country. I’m going with two friends from filmschool so I’m sure we won’t be lacking footage to create a travel video. 😉 We planned out most of the route in advance and once we land, the adventure begins. Not gonna lie, I’m a little anxious but super thrilled in the same time.

It took us a while to actually figure out the route. At first we even wanted to add a little part of Canada to the trip. Eventually we decided to skip Canada, because we would be driving through the snow all the time and most of the lakes we wanted to visit to canoe (like Lake Louise and Moraine Lake) would still be frozen in April. Doesn’t matter, that gives us an excuse to come back. 😉 Not that I need an excuse, just ten more jobs haha.

Alright, this is what we came up with. (Don’t mind my messy drawing on the map and forget about that little car sign with the ’30 u’  next to it, it’s not relevant.)

What I like the most about this trip is that the nature changes every single day, we go from a lake in Tahoe, to geysers in Yellowstone, to canyons close to Williams and we can’t forget about the desert. Also, there is a lot of variety in the weather. In Yellowstone you’ll probably be wearing your wintercoat in April, while in Palm Desert shorts are more suitable. Like I said, variety. Something different every single day, I love that, especially after having traveled such distances.

Also, I’m not much of a city girl, but San Francisco and Los Angeles are such enormous and iconic cities, that I’m sure checking out the area for a few days will be a really cool experience as well.

But, I’m actually sharing the trip because I would like to get some insider tips from people who know the area. So, if you have any recommendations about good restaurants, unique shops or beautiful parks/places to visit, let me know. I would really appreciate that! (Keep in mind, we are on a budget haha) 😉

A lot of people usually contact me through Instagram but feel free to comment down below or use the email adres on the ‘Message Me – page.’

Alright, till another time!

Love, Sofie

P.S. questions about exact locations, where we are staying and on which exact date, will not be answered.

Love Our Parks

It’s been sunny lately and it finally starts to feel like spring where I live, although it’s currently raining a little but I don’t mind, I’m going to bed soon and I like listening to the rain on the roof while trying to sleep.

I was going through the pictures of my last trip to America and I don’t know if I ever mentioned it, but my trips to The States are always about The National Parks of America, the whole route is precisely planned to travel from park to park. Yes, there are a few stops in between but mostly, it’s all about the parks, I love the parks.

I’ve been to quite a few parks, deserts, canyons. (If you are interested in which parks etc. I’ve been to, I will list them down below.) Today I decided I’d share some of my highlights and thoughts on the parks that I visited the last time while I was in America.

Marrakech Adventure

Hello y’all! So, I’ve been to Marrakech for a few days. I flew the morning right after new years evening. I didn’t party or celebrated the new year and went to bed around 10:30 that evening. I know it’s not very usual and festive to start the new year like that and normally I do celebrate it as well but this year I didn’t feel like it, I simply slept through it all.

The Simple Things

As some of you may know – the people who also follow me on Instagram probably will – I’ve been in Romania for 10 days. To renovate a house for children without a home and to shoot a documentary about their lives to help raise money for a better future. As you can imagine, it’s been an emotional rollercoaster. You laugh, you cry, you feel down, on top of the world… and all of that in just 10 days. It’s so interesting to get a true insight into lives that are so different from yours, yet they are only 2 hours away by plane. Trust me, it’s all about the simple things in life, going back to the base and the essence.

Ever Wondered Why

I’ve been so, so busy lately but the good news is, summerbreak is right around the corner. I didn’t share this already, but I’m going on a roadtrip again this year. Once again, I’m going to America. A few days after my birhtday, which is the 22nd of July, I’ll be flying from Amsterdam to Salt Lake City and from there, I’ll be cruising around in – I hope – an old fashioned Chevy 😉 I’m so excited already and I promis my camera won’t leave my side!
