Discovering the world, that's my goal

Welcome to Mostly Abroad! My name is Sanne Grieten and I am the founder of this travel blog. Besides my passion for traveling around the world, I like to write. That is why I started Mostly Abroad.

This blog is not only a way to keep my family informed when I experience new impressions, but it is also a way of life. I like to travel and I prefer to do so full-time.

Travel history

I have been traveling since I was a little one. Since then I have become addicted to the feeling of traveling and I want to make it my profession. Sounds ambitious, right?

I do not only travel to keep a report. I also travel to experience new things, discover new cultures and eat new dishes. Besides this, I share my insights with the world as well.

What I wanted to know before traveling to China

In November last year I was traveling to China. This was without a doubt one of the best trips I made. I visited and saw the Chinese Wall with my own eyes near Beijing, the Forbidden City in the center of the capital and the Terracotta army in Xi’An. In addition, I have seen many other things in Shanghai, the modern city of this incredibly large country.

This trip was a real Bucket List trip. Although I have followed many tips and tricks from other travel bloggers, I can not deny that there were other things I wanted to know before I traveled there. To make it easier for you, I have listed the best China must knows.

Bucket-List travels

I have already seen and experienced a lot. Yet these journeys were really the best!

Reisbloggen wanneer je niet reist

1. Photoblogs

It’s a very good tactic: you put your old photos into use, you have new content and people are longer on your blog to view the photos, which results in a long time session.

2. Guest blogging

Not only is this good for your blog, but it’s also great for someone else’s. You can promote each other a bit.

3. Reading other blogs

Not only do you have something to spend your time on and an opportunity to communicate by leaving a comment on other blogs, but it also most likely gives you inspiration.
