Welcome, my name is Thorsten van Dijk and I’m the author of My Travel Footsteps. I’m an 18-year-old guy and My Travel Footsteps is my blog of travel advice and adventures. It is aimed at providing you with vibrant, informative and relatable travel advice.
I first discovered my passion for travelling in 2016. I visited Greece with school and I noticed how much I love getting to know other cultures and traditions. In 2017, I took my first solo-trip at the age of 16 to Poland and Lithuania. After I took yet another solo-trip in 2017, I couldn’t stop.
In 2018, I graduated from high school. I got accepted into Med School but declined my spot to pursue my dream of long-term travel. In June of that same year, My Travel Footsteps was born.
As of now, my travel credentials include over 30 countries visited and partnerships with brands like the ss Rotterdam and WestCord Hotels.
