Hi there! My name is Roselinde and I’m a visual storyteller with an undying passion for travel and photography (and ice cream). My motivation for exploring new places is to discover other perspectives. I truly believe I learn the most when I explore unfamiliar places and experience different cultures. My absolute favourite thing to do (apart from travelling) is sharing my journeys on this blog. For now, I am based in the Netherlands, so when I’m back home, you’ll probably find me in Amsterdam or Breda.

When and why did I start my blog?

I have been blogging since 2010 and post visual reports of my activities within the Netherlands and abroad. I had just received my first DSLR camera as a birthday present and discovered my passion for photography. After blogging for a while, I received a ‘WordPress Freshly Pressed’ status in December 2011 and June 2012. That’s when I realised that anyone could start their own platform and reach others with their personal stories, which motivated me to keep on going. Then, in 2014, I participated in a photographic exhibition for young artists, which was held in Rovaniemi, Finland.

Academic Life

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in June 2015 by studying Liberal Arts and Sciences at Amsterdam University College (AUC), majoring in the Humanities. Academically, I mainly focus on topics within digital anthropology, new media, and visual culture. I wrote my thesis about mobile snapshots and their influence on traditional ideas about photographic time and space.

I attended the Beijing Normal University Philosophy Summer School in July 2015, and it was one of the best (travel) experiences of my life! In September 2015, I was honoured to be one of the first student speakers at the Magna Charta Universitatum annual conference in Bologna, Italy.

Currently, I am studying Cultural Analysis (research master) at the University of Amsterdam. If you are still reading this, it probably means you’ve taken the time to scroll through my blog, so:

Thank you very much for visiting!

  2. Lovely work. I have to ask about the rocks behind you in your masthead portrait: where is that? It looks like Joshua Tree in California. Thanks for visiting Wing\’s World, fellow traveler!

  3. Hi Roselinde! Thanks for stopping by our blog. Your photography is quite stunning. It’s nice that you give the reader small historical details of the place you visit. I’ve seen very few bloggers who do that. Look forward to reading more accounts of your trips! 🙂

  6. Nice use of the Zoren theme, especially your header! I need to keep playing with my layout to get it where I like it. Thanks for some inspiration!

  7. Hey Roselinde
    Just setting up my blog with the Zoren Theme. Because you are mentioned in “Awesome blogs using Zoren Theme” I wonder how you managed to set up your “Connect”-Widget? I can’t find a fitting one in the Widget list.

    1. Hey. I added links to a link category (which I named “Connect”). In the widget section, there should be a “link widget” and you’ll be able to select a link category to be displayed. Hope this helps!

  8. Just happened to run into your blog. Its a real interesting blog that you have here. Loved some of your write-ups. Its very subtle . I guess I will be hanging around here a lot. 🙂
