Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog!

My first post.. how do you start a first post? I’ve been wanting do start a blog for a long long time, but I just never had the guts or the motivation to actually do it. What was I gonna write about? Who on earth would be interested in reading my stories? But now, I’ve come to a point where I’m like: Who cares! Even if no one reads it, I’ll still have fun writing stuff and building and running my own website. Of course I actually do hope that people are gonna read it. I’ll be honest with you, I secretly hope my blog and videos are gonna be a smashing success, but I think 90% of the people starting a blog secretly hope that. However, before it can be a big success I should probably start by writing some content. So, let me tell you a little bit about me and what my blog is gonna be about.

Let’s start with the boring stuff.. My name is Julia, I’m 22 years old and I live in the Netherlands. Last year I obtained a bachelor degree in International Business Administration and I’m currently taking a gap year to do some stuff I really want to do. I loved my degree and everything else I was doing at the university, but there are always things that you put off because you first have to finish that paper or study for that exam. So this year is all about doing the things I really WANT to do and there are no excuses to put it off anymore. Starting a blog is one of those things.

Now you might think, wait.. doesn’t the school year start in September.. So what have you been doing all these months, that you’re only starting a blog now. Well, that brings me to another thing that I really wanted to do; TRAVELING. I absolutely loooove traveling and the past few months I was backpacking through Southeast Asia. Traveling is one of my biggest passions, besides dancing and singing. So, traveling will be a big part of this blog. I’ve been fortunate enough to have traveled quite a lot already (at least I think so) and I’m always looking for new opportunities to see more of the world. I love it when someone asks me for recommendations for a place I’ve been, so I figured why not just write them all down and share them on the internet. Maybe someone will read it and get inspiration for their own trip. All these recommendations will be bundled in the ‘destinations’ part of my blog. For now I’ve only uploaded a few posts in this section, but more destination guides will follow. I also want to write more general posts about traveling, for example with tips and tricks on packing and travel planning, but also on any personal experiences while traveling. This will form the section I’ve named ‘travel’ (very original, I know).

However, traveling is not all this blog is gonna be about. Traveling is a big part of my life, but there is more to me. I figured there are no rules in starting a blog, so I could make it about anything I want. This might sound super ego, but I love talking about me and my own life and I wanted my blog to be a place where I could share whatever I want to. So for the ‘lifestyle’ section of this blog I wanna write about things that interest me, such as music, fitness and entrepreneurship, but I also want to write about things that are going on in my life. I want my blog to have a happy and positive vibe, but I also want it to be honest and real. Not everything in life goes as planned, but I think there is always a positive and negative way to look at everything and I try to choose the positive way. I’m hoping that will shine through in this blog.

I think for now this is enough information about me and my blog. You’ll get to know me better along the way, reading about my life and my travel experiences (at least I hope you’ll read more than just this post). I’m planning to upload something once a week and if you want to receive weekly updates in your email, you can subscribe at the bottom of the page. There is a big chance that the sections I just explained are gonna change along the way, so in case you’re reading this a year later, I’m sorry if it’s not accurate anymore. However, I’m sure that it will still be my place to share my life and travel experiences. I’m hoping you’ll come on this blog journey with me! I guess for now all I have left to say is: WELCOME TO MY BLOG!!
