Hello! I’m Rose. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me!


I am the writer, editor and photographer behind The Brave Dame, a travel blog about (solo) traveling in Europe and beyond. My destinations are often a little bit off the beaten track, but that doesn’t mean I don’t roam the bigger, more visited parts of the world as well. On this website you can expect me to share all of my travel stories and tips with you.

I’m not a fulltime traveler. My daytime job is teaching Dutch to high school kids, a job proven to be very rewarding, yet stressful at times. Still I think teaching is the best thing I can do with my life.

One thing I love is planning trips! I plan all day, every day. Although I almost never stick to my original planning, I love finding out about affordable ways to travel, off the beaten path destinations and other travel hacks. Also, I’m a tad addicted to beauty. If I come across something valuable, I’ll make sure to tell you as well.




P.s. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch!
