I confess… and Paper Travels

You see…. And I do know this about myself… I am a little crazy sometimes.. And I also think that I can pack 48 hours into any given day. And to be honest I initially had planned to keep this quiet. “This” being a travel blog I started.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was just missing the travel bit here mostly. Because yes, my blog is about food, travel and photography but everything is really centered around food. And if you’re coming here, which is obviously a foodblog, you might be less interested in travel stories. Or so I assume (and based on the traffic in the travel part as well)

Plus I have been keeping travel notebooks since forever. Thick notebooks written full of our stories on the road. A new one for each travel adventure. And they were just waiting for me to do something with it. And so I – secretly – started a travel blog about a month ago. But I am really not good in keeping secrets and some people had already found out so I thought I better come clean and confess! O well and every person has some flaws right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m happy with it anyway. Here nothing will change. Only the posts that are purely travel related will be featured on Paper Travels but any food stories will still be here. This one is also multi lingual; English on Paper Travels dot com and Dutch on Paper Travels dot NL.

So… do you like to travel? Have a look! If not, than don’t!


O and ofcourse I have a twitter and facebook account to go along with it… Because that is how I roll…
