My name is Janka and I live in the Netherlands (Apeldoorn to be exactly).
Traveling is one of my big passions. I love to explore this planet! :) Some people are staying on the same campingspot in the same country year in year out. I try to go to different countries each year: exploring the culture, historic features, meet local people... Just having a good time. On my trips I have a diary. I write down everything that happened during the day. There are a few pages on VT where I have put my diary on. Hopefully you will enjoy them! :)
Living in Europe is a great benefit. There are so many countries to go to and you can go to other countries really easily. From my hometown it is about 45 minutes to Germany, 2/2,5 hours to Belgium and in 6 hours you are in Paris, France (all distances are driven by car).
The first years of my live I was camping in a tent. Later on my parents bought a caravan. The last couple of years I am staying in hotels. Every aspect has it charm.
Here is a list of countries which I have visited in the past.
Receiving postcards is one other thing I like. So, if you want to send me a postcard from your next trip, please give me a line for my address. See below for postcards that I received from VT-members. So far I have received (and bought myself) 250 postcards from all over the world (per 08 January 2010). And it is still counting! For my collection, see my facebook page.
Since January 2002 I am a member of virtualtourist.com. Back then I was looking around on the internet. At one point I saw this site. So, I went to have a look. And from that point I am hooked on this site. There are so many great & interesting pages/photos on this site. The site can be an addiction from time to time.
Have fun traveling and till next time.
PS: If you want to use one of my pictures, please ask first. Thanks!
