About Eef

“Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life” – Michael Palin


Evelien (Eef) | from Amsterdam
Digital Marketer | Master’s Degree in English | Creative Storyteller | Travel Influencer | Sunset Addict 

I was never that much into traveling. I loved going to the beach and on an occassional city trip, but the far and the unknown never really appealed to me. Until I went on my first backpack trip to Thailand in 2014. I instantly fell in love with this magical South-East Asian country. At the end of 2015, when my parents told me it is better to regret the things you did do, rather than the things you didn’t do, I knew I had to follow my heart. I quit my full-time job as an email marketer and booked a one-way ticket to Australia! And that’s when Eef Explores was born…

I believe it is never too late to make a drastic change in your life as it is also never too late to start traveling. I meet many people on my travels and I’m often one of the oldest. Does it matter? No. You’re as old as you feel you are, and I found that I could just as easily connect to a 19-year-old as to a 30-year-old. Everyone has their own story and experiences which is also one of the reasons why traveling makes you richer in ways I never expected to exist. I try to live in the moment and just enjoy everything that comes on my path. Where I’ll be one year from now? I don’t know, but what I do know is that I’m super excited for everything that lies ahead.

Enjoy reading my blogs, and don’t forget to check out my Instagram and/or Facebook while you’re at it 🙂

If you’ve been following my stories you’ve seen that yesterday @travel.with.j and I planned to go to Royal National Park. We never reached our destination because when the train stopped at the station, the doors didn’t open! We then got off at the next station and asked around where we could go for a nice hike. We eventually ended up here, without a soul in sight. Unexpected adventures are the best adventures 🙌🏼

I can’t express how much I love living in Sydney during summer. After work I headed straight to the Opera House (which I can also see from the office!) to stroll along the Sydney Harbour. The vibes are just so amazing and relaxed - will I ever be able to leave again?! ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘

This place looks peaceful and quiet, but what you can’t see in the picture is that these trees were packed with thousands of.... bats! 🦇 And they were huuuuge! I love how Sydney is home to parks like this where you can escape from the busy city life and wander around in nature. ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘

I came back to Bondi to spend the summer here and I’m loving it to the fullest. I just started a new temporary job as an email & social media marketer for a travel company for four days a week, and the other three days I’m spending out and about, exploring new places and enjoying the Bondi lifestyle. One happy little vegemite over here! 😁 ∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘∘
Hope you all have or had an amazing Sunday ♡

What do you think: could this be a classy magazine ad or is it more like a poster for a new season of Geordie Shore? 😁 #classyortrashy
