Hi! My name is Roselinde and I’m currently 23 years old. I’m a Dutch blogger with an undying passion for travel photography (and ice cream). My motivation for travelling the world is to discover new perspectives. I truly believe I learn the most when I explore new places and experience other cultures. My absolute favourite thing to do (apart from travelling) is sharing my journeys on this blog. I am based in the Netherlands, so when I’m back home, you’ll probably find me in Amsterdam or Breda.
I have been blogging since 2010 and post visual reports of my activities within the Netherlands and abroad. This blog received a ‘WordPress Freshly Pressed’ status in December 2011 and June 2012. In 2014, I participated in a photographic exhibition for young artists, which was held in Rovaniemi, Finland.
I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in June 2015 by studying Liberal Arts and Sciences at Amsterdam University College (AUC), majoring in the Humanities. Academically, I mainly focus on topics within digital anthropology, new media, visual culture, and East Asian philosophy. I wrote my thesis about mobile snapshots and their influence on traditional ideas about photographic time and space.
I attended the Beijing Normal University Philosophy Summer School in July 2015; one of the best (travel) experiences of my life! In September 2015, I was honoured to be one of the first student speakers at the Magna Charta Universitatum annual conference in Bologna, Italy. I hope to continue my education by starting a master’s program in September 2016.
