About Us

Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out Freckles on the Beach! My name is Iris and I love exploring the world. It has so much to offer and I would like to share all those experiences. 

A little over 2 year ago I graduated 3 bachelor degrees. The moment I had gotten my degrees, I stepped in a plane to travel the world. When I was traveling I realised that chasing those experiences, writing travel blogs and making travel photography and videography are my real passions! Travel is what makes me truly happy and I am going to keep pursuing my dreams and passions. 

Most days you’ll find me wandering the world or in a cute cafe sipping loads of tea, and creating travel content. When I’m back home in the Netherlands and the sun is out I love taking long walks on the beach. The beach is my favourite place to be, hence the name Freckles on the Beach😉.
