About me

I’m Elise and To Rove About is where I share my honest (travel) stories.

I always loved travelling but the moment I got hooked was when I decided at the age of 17 to live abroad for 3 months. I ended up in China, where I tried to learn Chinese and had the best of times. I loved diving into another culture and I grew in so many ways.

I have been travelling ever since.
As a photographer and videographer, I have the urge to document what I see.
And as a journalist, I have the urge to write about what I experience.
‘Honest’ is a key word here, because in the world of travel blogs and all social media, I often missed honesty.

As much as I love travelling, it’s not always as beautiful and easy as it seems on Instagram.
I share the wonder of it, but I also share the struggles.
Every journey teaches me new things and I always go home with new experiences and insights.

We all wonder what life is about and travelling helps me to figure out my ‘why’.
I share my own personal search for happiness.
So that I might help you, with your own search.

I care about the stories behind the countries I visit and its people.
I care about my ecological footprint and the impact we make on our beautiful planet.

I’m an adventurer and I love hiking.

All these things will come together on this platform.

I hope to take you with me on my happiest moments, while also sharing the difficult times.


Travelling keeps me present in a way I find difficult sometimes in day to day life.
