About Flora Flies

Hola adventurer! On this blog, I obviously share my recommendations per destination, as well as Travel Tips. They're specifically directed to you - a (solo) backpacker who is aiming to travel more sustainably.


I'm an adventurous twenty-one years old Dutchie who is finding her way in the world of sustainability. Where travel and sustainability do not seem to go hand in hand at first glance, there are plenty of opportunities to see more of the world in a sustainable way.


Travelling by plane obviously does not fall under the term sustainable travel, yet I have decided to name my blog Flora Flies. At the age of 16, I flew across the ocean on my own for the first time, to get one step closer to my dream: that left cockpit seat. Two years later, I unfortunately didn't pass the selection of the flight training school, after which I enrolled in a completely different study. That's where my nickname Flora was born, during the Spanish lessons of my Bachelor study International Business Communication.

I've meanwhile graduated from University. In September 2021, I've spread out my wings, and I went slow travelling Latin America for a bit more than half a year.


Flora Flies is all about being open to new cultures and adventures. Will you be flying with me?
