About Sarah AKA ‘the blogger’
My name is Sarah. I grew up in Zomergem, a small village close to Ghent in Belgium. Every year as a child I went on vacation with my parents. From my mother I inherited the sense of adventure and the desire to discover unknown places. From my father, I learned to enjoy the local delicious cuisine and find that little bit of extra luxury when searching for the perfect accommodation. These are still important traits that I carry with me whenever I travel
At a later age I enjoyed discovering the world together with friends.
I also developed a passion for photography and wherever I went, I took my camera with me.
Fascinated by traveling, landscapes and cultures, I studied to be a religion and history teacher. Teaching these subject to others I found less satisfying and therefor I chose to work as a special needs teacher.
Currently, I teach youngsters with a intellectual disability and I am studying for my master degree in special needs education. I am a huge advocate of lifelong learning in whatever way is possible.
Within this busy lifestyle, I needed a creative outlet and I found it on instagram. I started to share my travel photos and received a lot of appreciation from fellow travellers.
A love affair
Meanwhile, I met Jan. We shared the same passion for travel, nature, culture, adventure and photography. You could say a match made in heaven. We fell head over heels and he became my partner in crime whenever I took off for a new adventure.
Jan started to participate in the whole instagram story. Together we searched for the best places to photograph while traveling and shared these with our followers on social media. It made us travel more consciously. We felt that this way we discovered more unique places and hidden gems.
Travel with me
We saw our audience on social media growing. Many people started to follow our journey.
On our big road trip through Thailand and Myanmar where Jan also proposed to me, the idea of Travel with me arose. A online travel blog, where we could share our experiences with like-minded travellers.
Since starting this adventure, we have learned to plan our lives better so that we can create more time and resources to travel, we have discovered numerous new places that we never thought to see, we stayed in unique accommodations where we could only dream of, we have made so many new and exciting friends, but above all we are making our dream come true to explore the world step by step.
