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.
Aged 3 years old 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. After that first trip I fell in love with travelling. 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 also speak a bit of Spanish and English, but please don’t pick on me if my writing isn’t that perfect. In future I’d like to see a lot of different places like Brazil, Australia, Japan, the US and more ;).
My dream is to become a traveling 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 stay writing about my journeys. About 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.
