My name is Dorien, a Dutch girl who has a passion for writing and photographing. But what I’d really like to do the most is travelling. I got my interest for travelling from my parents, who have seen a lot of countries. For example the United States where they also had the crazy idea to get married in Las Vegas.
My love for travel started at the age of 3 years old when we went to Spain, which was my first time in a plane. I was really scared at first, but didn’t want to leave the plane after we landed. My parents took me to al lot of foreign countries and later I discovered some of them myself. I never stopped loving the Netherlands where I already discovered the most beautiful cities and villages. I love to speak English, but please don’t pick on me if my writing isn’t that perfect.
My dream is to become a travel journalist. I knew this is what I wanted after my mom got very sick in my first year of secondary school. This really changed my idea of life and I learned to enjoy every moment of it. That’s why I studied journalism to follow my passions and learn more about them. On this blog I want to write about my journeys in foreign countries, but also places in The Netherlands.
As you discovered by now, my blog is about traveling. I combine my articles and blogs with videos and pictures. You can also follow me on Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. The name of my blog is Dorien’s Travel Suitcase. The reason I picked this name is because my father has an old suitcase which I really love. He gave it to me so I can take along with me to my destinations. It’s kind of a suitcase where all my travel stories can be found.
