Hello everyone, I’m Freija! Welcome to Wanderlust on the Rocks, my online space for travel and food.
I work as an Commercial Coordinator for a hotel management company with hotels in Ireland, United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands and France. So why start a blog? Well, ever since I can remember, I’ve loved life the most when travelling. In school my favorite subject was History. I really enjoyed listening to stories about events that shaped peoples way of live and culture. Curious as I am, I wanted to see these places with my own eyes. I like meeting new people, discovering different cultures, learning other languages and tasting foreign cuisines. I love sandy beaches and breathtaking nature views, but the type of travel I like the most is citytrips. Preferable while staying in nice hotels. I love the variation that these trips offer; landmarks, museums, wandering around the city, shopping and enjoying local restaurants and pubs. My top 3: Firenze, New York & Budapest.
Another great passion of mine is gastronomy. Growing up in Flanders you get introduced to a lot of fine dishes. My favorites by far are Belgian stew with fries & Moules frites. Being a real foodie I also love foreign cuisines, especially the Italian & Thai ones.
For years I have been saving business cards from nice restaurants and leaflets from famous and not so famous landmarks from the places I have been to, so should one of my friends go there I could tell them about the hotspots and places they should not miss. So basically that’s why I ‘ve decided to start a blog. The focus will be mainly on my travel stories, but I will also share with you my tips for a visit to my amazing hometown, Ghent.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I do writing it. If you have tips for me, places I should go to and discover, please feel free to share them with me.
