TRAVEL YT CHANNEL PLEASE WATCH MY LATEST VIDEO
Currently travelling and not actually from Leiden!
I am quadruple vaccinated and had covid most likely twice so all good!
I have a boyfriend so please no flirting!
Also please don't bother to send requests from a different country, I'm not going to cross the border into Iraq just because I'm visiting Kuwait!
⚠️ Please only host me if you are okay with leaving me the key 🔑, I had bad experience in Azerbaijan regarding this where I was last minute expected to stay outside for 10 hours after being heavily jetlagged. Hosting without a key only works if the host is willing to go and give tours to the surfer or are home like all day. Not I go 10 hours to work and now you survive out there ⚠️
I'm half Dutch and half Portuguesa and looking to become a musician and also am trying to vlog my travel experiences (just started). I play guitar, flute and I sing. I can also do a little violin and keyboard. I'm currently travelling around a bit and looking to stop around Middle East, Mediterranean and Caucasus. I love travelling, reading, music, fashion, gaming, hiking, etc.
I love learning languages and am fluent in Dutch, English and almost Portuguese, quite decent at German and learning a whole plethora of other languages. I got into Japanese culture and anime so I've learned quite a lot of things. I got into Russian because I became a fan of Russian figure skating.
Now I also try to learn Chinese, but it remains rather difficult.
Also I'm vegan, but it's no problem since I can manage food on my own :)
I'm usually either at my family, boyfriend, friends or travelling, but in the future I would like to host as well if the opportunity ever arises

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I went on a journey to West Azerbaijan on a small bus and saw some really cool nature and things from the Silk Road
Saw wild horses in Latvia and found a bone
Got robbed in Romania, but they left my backpack behind, only took the money and I just felt grateful the things that actually mattered were still there
Saw the Northern lights in Iceland including a shooting star
Went to an Eric Clapton concert in the desert and got the setlist after F1 Bahrain
Slept one week in the favela Vidigal of Rio de Janeiro and had a better time than a supposedly "safe" neighbourhood were I was for 19 days
Attended a festa dos tabuleiros in my Portuguese hometown called Tomar
Saw F1 in Baku Azerbaijan at the Ischeri Sheher grandstand, very hot, but cool experience and also the only time in my life I will have seen Vettel in action
Final Black Sabbath concert in Germany before they moved on to the British Isles and disbanded and I had golden circle tickets
Travelling 5 continents within 1 year while originally I thought I was going nowhere this year
