My name is Mirjam, I’m 25 years old and I was born in Amsterdam, the wonderful capital city of The Netherlands. When I was 12 years old, I told my mother that I was going to learn Spanish and live abroad when I was older. She laughed at me not knowing that I was being pretty serious. Six years later I moved to Spain to do a Spanish course and she realised that it was not just a child’s fantasy but a dream becoming true.
It all got more serious after my studies when I decided to replace Spain for South-America to travel and work as a volunteer for a couple of months. Being in Ecuador, I fell in love with the beautiful nature and way of living. I learned to appreciate the little simple things in life and when I had to go home I felt like I still didn’t learn enough. My time in South-America had not to end yet.
Actually it didn’t because this year I decided to come back, continue my learning process and explore more of Ecuador. Now I’m working with Rebecca Adventure Travel I feel so lucky to share my love for South-America with you and to be able to give you the chance to experience as much as possible of this beautiful continent.
Hope to see you soon!
