Me in San Francisco
Holiday Nomad in San Francisco


A travel lover with a full-time day job exploring - together with my husband - the world during our holidays. You do not need to be a full time globetrotter to see the world. There is so much that can be done during your holidays / vacations. I hope you will find some inspiration here for your next one!

Born and raised in Belgium-Europe, so if my English sounds funny sometimes that's the reason ;-)

About the Blog:

My Travel and Photo Blog, which I started end September 2012, is for everyone who enjoys travel. We love to discover new places, a comfortable hotel, nice food and some action. We're big fans of hiking, nature and wildlife. This does not mean that we are backpackers, we love a unique or great hotel, wellness and nice food as well. The perfect holiday for us is a combination of all these things ... 

Why Holiday Nomad? Although in some parts of the world the word "holiday" is mostly used to indicate the time around Christmas, Thanksgiving, ... in Europe the word "holiday" is used for any time off from work and thus used as a synonym for "vacation".    

Sometimes even a 1000 words do not say as much as a simple photo ... therefore I love illustrating our travel stories with photos. Nearly all photos on this blog are amateur photos taken by myself or are photos of me. Other photos will always clearly mention the photographer or source.

  5. hm impressive :) but why do you publish your about page as a post. you can have publish it as a page and URL structure will great.

    1. thx. My about me post was my first post on my blog. By the time I figured out I could make this on a page iso a post, I already had comments on the post and did not want to loose these. In addition I was worried about creating double content on my site. So I just created a page and redirected it to the url of my post.
