English summary

Travel translations into Dutch

I studied Slavonic linguistics and have been translating texts from English, Russian, Bulgarian and Czech into Dutch since 1999, specialising in travel. Over the past few years, I have been learning Swedish.

My travel blog and country websites

In 2013, I started blogging about travel from the Netherlands to Northern and Eastern Europe. At the moment, this is my fulltime job and I have around 66.000 unique visitors per month. For readers who are interested in one country in particular, I created niche websites about:

Promote your product or destination

On Stralend Schrijven, I do reviews of travel-related products and Scandinavian series, books and design. I also go on press trips to Northern and Eastern Europe (by myself or with my family, depending on what target group you want to promote your destination to)  and publish travel stories about the destinations I visit.

Please feel free to contact me and ask for my media kit, examples of earlier trips and resulting publications, or an idea of the social media coverage and blog post(s) I could do if you would invite me  to your destination or send me a product.
