Hi! I’m Silke, the owner of the blog SilSights. I would love to tell you more about me. I am a twenty-five year old Dutchie who is totally addicted to traveling.
I studied Human Resource Management at the HAN in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. When I finished this study, I studied the master Business Administration, with the specialization Marketing, at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Now I can call myself: Master of Science! I switched from Human Resource Management to Marketing because I was looking for a more creative field. Currently, I am a full time Online Marketeer (for the employment agency Abeos) with the ambition to one day be able to travel for an extended period through remote working.
Travelling had always been a great passion. I was always counting the days down until the next holiday. I used to go on vacation with my parents often. We often went to France together, but we also visited Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Austria and Spain, among other places. I have been in a relationship with the love of my life (Michiel) for more than six years now. Together we have visited many Greek islands, but we also like a city trip now and then. We are real travel fanatics and hope to make longer trips one day.
Going on holiday with me means: hundreds of pictures. After every holiday there are thousands of new photos on my iPhone. During the lockdown because of the corona virus, I thought of sharing all these holiday photos on an Instagram account: SilSights arises! With my passion for content creation, photography and writing, I hope to inspire you with a lot of travel content!
Well, enough about me. I want to thank you for reading my blog! I also always enjoy connecting with likeminded people! Feel free to message me on Instagram or by e-mail if there’s anything you want to know or just want to chat about the most fun thing in the world: travel!
How many countries have I visited so far?
I have only visited 18 countries (20 territories) at the moment. Unfortunately, these are all only countries/territories in Europe: Andorra, Austria, Balearic Islands, Belgium, Canary Islands, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Vatican City.
What are my 2023 travel plans?
This year, for the first time, will be one in which I won’t be able to travel much. Michiel and I bought a newly built house in December, and a lot of money is going toward that this year. However, last month, Michiel and I went to Tenerife with my family, and I visited Fleur (of FloraFlies) in Valencia with Simone (of Travel with Simone). And because we couldn’t resist, we booked another trip to Puglia for the end of August.
What is my favourite destination?
My favourite destination is definitely Greece. I made so many great memories together with Michiel in this beautiful country. We have been able to see a lot of Greece and are always so impressed by its beauty. My favourite Greek island so far is Rhodes. You have everything there: a beautiful sea, an ancient city, beautiful ruins, amazing landscapes and delicious food.
