    Confessions: 11 reasons why I’m the worst travel blogger

    When starting my Confessions of a Travel Blogger series last summer I already mentioned that there would be  a lot of “confessions” for me to make. Even though this series started kind of like a joke (I mean, c’mon, don’t take it too serious … life is fun you know!) I never thought I could actually do 7 episodes within 7 months. But as I continue traveling around the globe, meeting new people and experiencing a lot of crazy things, my diary is full with things that I never even gave any thought 2 years ago, before becoming a travel blogger.
