When not traveling I'm:in amsterdam
I'm Merel, live in Amsterdam. I'm studying at the moment, it's interesting but i can't waight to pack my stuff again and discover new places. I was fifteen when i travelled for the first time by my own, and since then there's a travelfire in me that's never off! When i have the opportunity i travel, sadly enough i haven't a lot of time or money at the moment. I'm working a lot to save up some money. I have plans to go in june to nicaragua and study some spanish and visit some friends. I love it to meet new people, to chill at the beach, explore new cultures, explore new things. Holland is a nice country, but it's small and boring after a while, so i take every opportunity there is to leave holland! My dream is to travel for an unlimited time, to go from mexico all the way down to brazil! Can't waight to really do that! but first i have to finish university and then i'll be travelling!
