My story

Welcome to Girlswanderlust

Hi! I’m Daphne, a creative from The Netherlands that runs a ‘travel content creation’ company named Girlswanderlust.

I created Girlswanderlust on Instagram and Facebook in 2015 together with my friend Tamara. We also started the blog where we post weekly, kept on posting on social media and combined traveling with our fulltime jobs. For 7 years we combined our worldly experiences and photography skills to curate articles about unique destinations, hotel reviews, backpacking, and more. Girlswanderlust has advice for all aspects of a trip, from the preparation stage to after one has returned home.

As of August 2022, I run the company alone and set myself the goal to capture the world in a way so that I can see more than only my nine to five job. I quit my job (which I loved immensely) and now work full-time on Girlswanderlust, something I enjoy doing every day. I utilize my first-hand experience to answer any questions that you may have about international travel. My perspective offered is especially useful for women considering travel, as my advice is centered towards a female readership.
