About Me


Amazing Asia, here I come!


About myself..pff.. without being too cliche...hmmFiona, 25 years old, I've studied History. I could describe myself as enthusiastic, curious, creative, spontaneous and maybe even adventurous. Usually you could recognize me by my vivid coloured clothes and sometimes bare feet. I enjoy travelling, especially hitchhiking. I enjoy music, parties, festivals, theater, art, dancing, reading, writing, photography, films and meeting new people. And somehow I just happen to find a lot of stuff in the street and on the train (varying from lamps to jewelry, from books to toys and from cell phones to bouquets).Sometimes I feel like I was born too late. I love the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, and I like to collect retro and vintage objects and clothes. Something like this?..


I switch to different philosophies every day. It depends on the people (friends, professors, writers, total strangers) that inspire me that day. Sometimes it's hard to find a good balance between being happy and grateful for what you have, and staying aware of the things that you'd like to change. F.I.O.N.A.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

InterRailing through Europe!! Spending 5 months living in Berlin. Boom Festival 2014. Travelling through Asia for 6 months. Albert and I taught ourselves how to drive manual motorcycles and drove through Vietnam. And hitchhiking will always be my favorite way to travel.

Teach, Learn, Share

We could discuss philosophy, history, music, politics etc. etc. I like to learn new languages, maybe you can teach me yours? And I could help you with Dutch for example.

And I'm sure there are other things I could help you with and vice versa.
