This is what they said.

I used to have a stable, predictable career and lead a comfortable life. After earning a master’s degree in Western Literature and another one in Cultural Management, I quickly found a job at the Belgian press agency Belga. When my contract there ended, I moved on to publishing house Indicator where I worked as a copywriter and marketing coordinator… until I quit my job.
I realized security and certainty weren’t enough. I needed to create my own path and follow my passions. This blog is about finding out where those take me by exploring my home country Belgium and the rest of the world while I’m at it.
If there is something you want so badly that you’d take a risk – a real risk – to get it, then I ask you to join me. If you have a dream, vague but ever growing, then I hope to inspire you.
Let’s go on this quest together.SO, WHERE ARE WE GOING?
We start our quest in Belgium, my home country but at the same time a travel destination for millions of people each year and a new home to yet others. What brings them here? Are they seeing all they should see? Are they experiencing all they can? I want to introduce Belgium to the world and show it all that this little country has to offer. Belgium is chocolate and Brussels, yes, but it’s also much more than that.
At the same time I want to question Belgium. It’s my home country, but not by choice. I like living here, but I haven’t tried anywhere else. There are so many other countries to explore, so many different lifestyles and cultures. What if another one would suit me better? What if another one would suit you better? Taking a look doesn’t hurt, now does it?
Plus, Belgians go on vacation too, so we might as well show them where to go.
Wonderful Wanderings isn’t just about introducing Belgium to the world and the world to Belgium though. It’s about mixing them up and taking the best of both. It’s about having the world in Belgium and taking a bit of Belgium with me each time I travel.
But most importantly, it’s about sharing both with you so that you can figure out where your travels should lead you and start your own quest.
Are you ready?
