Although I’m a bit of an addict, it’s not just about the coffee. Every country seems to have its own coffee culture, it’s part of their identity. By sitting down to drink a cup of coffee, I’ll be able to take part of the local coffee culture and connect with other coffee lovers/addicts.
And that often leads to more stories :)
And I’m not done yet. Not done hiking. Not done searching. Not done with the Balkans. Those mountains, the people and the nature, I still feel extremely attracted to them. That’s why I went back. In 2017 I walked from Amsterdam to Sarajevo, 4000 kilometer on foot. Once I got back, I new I would stay. I gave up my apartment in Amsterdam and signed up for a language course in Zagreb.
In June 2018 I continued my Via Dinarica journey from Sarajevo, aiming to explore the Green Trail, the Blue Trail and the unofficial Via Dinarica extensions in Kosovo and North Macedonia. It became my mission to connect the three trails and to inspire future Via Dinarica hikers by sharing my experience through stories, videos, trailnotes and interactive hiking maps.
With my stories, I hope to take you to the Balkans, to the mountains and to a trail which is so much more than just a trail.
