Writing is my passion. Since 2010, several blogs passed the revue but with the online lifestyle & travel magazine Living by the Sea and the niche website Take me to Sweden the pieces finally fell into place.

About Living by the Sea

Living by the Sea, travelling the world. This Belgian online lifestyle & travel magazine (written in Dutch) takes you to the best places on earth, always close to the sea. Living by the Sea offers a fresh sea breeze, the slow life and a lot of Ostend (my hometown and the greatest city by the sea in Belgium). I don’t only share travel inspiration and travel hacks, but I also share my life hacks and tips for a minimalist lifestyle.


Living by the Sea gets between 10,000 and 20,000 visitors/month. More than half of my readers are women between 25 and 44 years old. The readers of Living by the Sea mainly come from Belgium. They are interested in travel and minimizing their lifes and are especially seeking tips & tricks to make life easier. They want quality, are willing to pay a little extra for it and above all, want to enjoy life.

About Take me to Sweden

Take me to Sweden is an inspirational and informative travel guide about Sweden with lots of practical information and the unbeatable sights. I also share Sweden’s real hidden gems and hotspots. Stockholm is a hot topic, but we also talk about wildlife experiences or discovering cozy towns. Qualitative content is paramount. I only mention places and hotspots that I personally visited or experienced. Take me to Sweden is written in both Dutch and English.


I launched Take me to Sweden in September 2016. After only 2 years, the website has almost 15,000 visitors/month. The readers of Take me to Sweden mainly come from Belgium and the Netherlands. Sweden, UK and USA count for another 15-20% of the readership. In gender, the distribution is 35% men and 65% women, mainly in the age group 25-54 years. The readers are interested in travel, lifestyle and food. And Sweden, of course!

What can I do for you?

    (Story ideas from blog trips can also be pitched to the traditional press as I also write for some newspapers and magazines.)
  • Ambassadorship for your brand

Feel free to contact me if you have another proposal. Also have a look at the services I can offer as a freelancer!

What does it cost?

Attending press trips is free of any charge. However, I expect all costs on site + transport costs to be covered. I encourage the organizations I co-operate with to compensate for the CO2 emissions of the flights.

If the brand wants to have the texts and footage or if certain visibility is expected, I would like to discuss the terms in advance. The rates for ambassadorship, reviews and giveaways depend on the project. I’m only collaborating with brands and organizations that I can be 100% behind and that can be an added value to my audience. Collabs are clearly marked. Always!
