For those of you that wonder about the person behind the blog, these pages are for you. Here you can get to know me. Enjoy!

About the blogger

My name is Tristin (which might explain the blog name). I am 23 years of age. I live in the Netherlands, Europe.

There.

I was raised wordly however. I have two passports. My parents are Dutch but I was born abroad; in Texas, the United States. I have lived in various states in ‘Murica, in Canada and various places here as well. I have also been on many vacations around the world. It’s quite a way to live.

I was born and raised in the countryside and in small towns. My life has always incorporated the presence of animals; cats mainly. Dogs have been around and of course your average farm animal. Besides that, there have been several horses in my life. There were a few small hamsters and nowadays I’m accompanied by goldfish.

Besides that, I’ve always been consumed by writing, drawing and other events that involve creativity. This includes music, drawing, painting and being busy with my hands. Challenging my mind is something I’ve also been quite fond of and I’ve spent a lot of time investigating both science and the mystique.

Beyond that, I lead a very simple life. I am a vegetarian, tend to my hobbies and chores at home and once in a while I go out to see friends or family. I’m fond of the company but I like my alone time equally. When I am by myself, I can reflect and let my mind wander and come up with new things; such as new blog posts, for example.

Currently, I am an International Business and Management student at Stenden University of Applied Sciences. My dream is to travel to Scandinavia and start my own consultancy business there for expats and for companies interested in expanding to the Scandinavian area. With that in mind, I do my best to study hard and learn anything I can that might prove valuable.
