When I was younger I always wanted to have a position in a corporate company that would allow me to fly all over the world in business class. Flying like this always was a dream, but because of the perks of my job being a professional travel blogger it became reality. I was on my way trekking in Nepal and attending the Himalayan Travel Mart 2019 in Kathmandu when I enjoyed the A380 Qatar Airways business class from Frankfurt to Doha and onwards to Kathmandu.

In this blog I will give you an inside in all the activities I did on my trip and give you the best Mediterranean cruise excursions tips.

Who is not dreaming about diving in Maldives? Or what about a liveaboard in Raja Ampat or diving in Sipadan, Malysia. These are just some of the most amazing scuba diving destinations in the world that I have been to. However I haven't been diving since 2014 now. Why not? Long lasting ear problems are keeping me out of the water, despite an eardrum surgery.
Within less than a week there is a big thing coming up for me! Remember those days 4 years ago when I was living in Koh Tao, Thailand? While doing my Divemaster training I ruptured my eardrum. Now 4 years later I am finally getting a special surgery so I can go scuba diving again. But that also means no flights for the next two months. Perfect timing to make my last flight in a while a memorable one: flying the new Qsuite Business Class from Qatar Airways.
Waking up has never been among my favorite things to do and definitely not when you know it is cold and dark outside and you have to go to work. I used to have an office job and live in Netherlands where in winter I drove to work when it was dark and came home in the darkness. If that is what you are facing this winter than this inspiring post with colorful breakfast images and ideas from breakfast foods around the world should help you get back into the holiday mood.
How many flights I board a year? I don’t know anymore to be honest. I used to keep track of that and remember in 2013 and 104 that were about 50 a year. Nowadays it is a little bit less, but the last weeks I flew from Bali to Amsterdam with KLM, then from Amsterdam a return trip to Vietnam with Emirates and then quickly left Holland again to fly to Maldives and back to Europe with Qatar Airways.
After many years of traveling around the world I have come to the conclusion that I am a big fan of countries where you get a lot of bang for your buck!

In this list I will give you the best backpack destinations that I have visited and some backpack destinations for beginners.
To travel the world and get paid is a dream coming true, but I don’t forget where I came from. I want to travel the world, where do I start? Be careful! Asking yourself this question can lead to a new lifestyle. Are you ready for it?
Ever since I lived in the Caribbean in 2006 I have had a crush on islands. There is simply a different vibe and people seem to be happier than elsewhere. People don’t take life so serious and live a day-to-day lifestyle rather than worrying what the future will bring them. Over the years I have learned that islandlife is totally my thing. Running around on flip-flops wearing swimmers feels so uncomplicated and that is how life should be.
How many times did you hear people saying: I want to travel the world and get paid for it. But how many people do really get paid to travel? Hardly anyone! Yes there definitely are a few exceptions, but reality tells us that those people are exceptions. I am not telling you it is impossible, but don’t fool yourself by reading blogs saying: everyone can get paid to travel the world! That is definitely not true!
Being on the road and going to the gym is not a great match. We all know that traveling is not easy and can be pretty exhausting.
