There she goes

Ever since I visited New Zealand as a backpacker in 2002 I knew that hiking was something I wanted to do more of in the future. So when I got home from that trip I bought myself some proper hikingboots (I did all short tramps there on my Doc Martens) and got started. First with some treks through local woods, then multi day ones without a pack in Belgium and Germany, followed by multi day ones with packs all over the planet. Knowing there is still so much to see and do sometimes makes me restless.

Over the past 10 years I’ve done quite some hikes all over the world. If you’d like to know more or have any specific questions about them, please feel free to email me at travelleranto@gmail.com or contact me through Facebook or Twitter (see links on the right).

nice to meet you

My name is Antonette (Anto) and I’m a 30-something outdoor fan living in The Netherlands. Traveling is my passion (hence the username travelleranto) and I like to spend my journeys the active way, mostly by hiking and camping.

If I’m not on the way, I work as a product manager for a Dutch tour operator specialized in natural destinations, such as Alaska, Argentina and Iceland. When not in the outdoors or behind an office desk, I enjoy writing (for my own site but also some Dutch websites), photography and reading.
