“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

A vagabond with a gypsy soul, homeless and a head that’s always in the clouds.
Yes, you ended up on the blog of a restless wanderer.

Traveling has always been one of my favorite things to do, but since I have lived and traveled around the Balkan area for 15 months starting in 2014, I think I got bitten by this travel bug and want more. Lots more. At the moment I am trying to graduate by doing my final thesis about Albania and hopefully call myself a heritage professional soon and continue this lifestyle by working on nice heritage projects and do some freelance stuff while traveling around the globe.

Besides this I love to make stuff as well. Using textiles and create small creatures and jewelry is a nice passtime while being at home or on the road.

I love taking photos. But due to a chronic inflammation in my wrist, it became almost impossible to take pictures with a good (and heavy) camera. That is why I decided to only take pictures with my iPhone for a while. Personally I think it is a nice challenge to be limited by taking pictures just with a phone without using too much lenses. In the future I hope to experiment with some phone lenses though. The editing is done with the photoshop express app and some other ones as well. Not only do I take pictures to show just places, but also to give an impression on how I experienced them.

The big photos are all made and edited by me with my iphone. These pictures can’t be used without permission from me. If you like to use one, please ask.

  1. From Pinterest…I so seldom get to meet anyone who Pins things. You liked the mossy landscape, and I like your blog. Pleased to meet you, Jannica!

    1. Hello,

      Thank you very much. 🙂
      Nice to meet you too and maybe we see each other around on pinterest (it is sooo addictive)!

  2. Dear Jannica:

    I am rebuilding costumes for the Dubrovnik area. They are very similar to the gold cord couched embroidery work that the Albanians do. Do you have video of those craftsmen applying the gold cord and couching it to the velvet or wool? All of the craftsmen that knew this in Croatia are gone to the ages, but many are trying to learn these old skills and rebuild new costumes with original materials and technique. Please email me at: nicholasjpetrishiii@gmail.com

  3. Hey Janneke, wat maak jij toch prachtige reportages/verhalen. Vooral die van Sofia en Plavdov. En de foto’s erbij; het lijkt wel een professioneel reisverslag en je engels is ook heel goed. Ik vind het geweldig dat je dit doet en ben erg trots op je! Nog een heel fijne tijd. Lieve groet, Ankie
