The Face Behind

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!

Which countries have I visited so far?

I have visited 20 countries at the moment. 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. And in Central America: Costa Rica and Panama.

What are my 2024 travel plans?

This year, will be a special year! My next trip will be my first trip outside Europe. Secondly, this trip is in honour of my father’s 60th birthday. It will be a family trip with my parents, sister, brother-in-law, and boyfriend. We are going on a roadtrip through Costa Rica and Panama. And in Panama, we will be visiting family!

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.
