Welcome to my journey around the world!

My name is Marianka, but people usually call me Mar (like the sea). I’m a twenty-four year old creative from the Netherlands. In 2016, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Illustration.

After the stress of graduating, I booked a one-way ticket to Thailand. I travelled through several countries in Asia before I headed to Australia. After being there for 6 months I came to realize that I wanted to share my travels and thoughts with the world.

I believe that one of the most important things in life is to follow your passion. Whether that be travelling around the world, working for an animal shelter or simply being a waitress – as long as you wake up with the feeling that you’re doing something important, for yourself or for others.

I’m not planning on settling down anytime soon, because travelling makes me excited and I know that there is so much more to see, taste & experience. My goal is to be happy & to share my happiness.
