Hello my fellow travel lovers,

It’s really nice to meet you! I’m Jacoba (my friends call me Co) and I love to discover amazing places in this world. I live in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), can be very clumsy, but I’m always happy. In Amsterdam I have a full-time job as a marketer for one of the best orchestras in the world (go, if you have the chance, nothing beats a concert of a big symphony by a great orchestra). On my days off I prefer discovering the world. So far I’ve travelled to 28 countries, and there’s more to come. I’ve been writing down my travel stories in Dutch for a few years on my blog Opreismetco.nl, and on this website I would love to share my stories with everybody else in the world.


Yes, I usually trip two or three times a day and have bruises everywhere. Don’t know why, so I guess I’m just very dreamy and looking around, instead of looking where I go. At one time I was rafting in Costa Rica (which was amazing), and the tour guide warned us not to fall out of the boat. Guess what I did… Luckily I got back in quickly and just got a few bruises. And also, I can be very unlucky weatherwise, it usually rains when I arrive at a new destination (that happened in Miami, The Bahamas, Sydney). But I just keep on travelling, because discovering new places is just too good.

What can you expect?

Ever since I grew up in a small village in the northern part of The Netherlands, I wanted to travel. It took some time (my first time on a plane was when I was 21), but I’ve been travelling a lot in the past few years. I’ve been travelling around in Europe a lot, and I’ve also been to Australia, Asia (Bali and the Philippines) and Central America (Costa Rica and Cuba). My favourite country is the United States, so I’ll be writing a lot about great road trips in the USA.
