Indian culture shock vs Netherlands. India is one of the most intense countries to visit in the world. But at the same time growing up in the Netherlands Dutch culture gave me plenty of culture shocks too. About 2 years ago I left the Netherlands and since then I'm building a new life here in India. Every day I discover new things about Indian culture, which is the complete opposite of the things that are considered normal in the Netherlands. I love learning new things though because I'm a curious person. In that way I also love sharing my experiences with other people and opening their eyes on how things can be done so differently all over the world. Today I'm comparing Indian culture shock vs the Netherlands so in case you visit you know what to expect.

Q Where are you from?
A I am born in former Yugoslavia. Mom is Serbian, Dad is Bosnian. During the '90's war we came to the Netherlands and I got Dutch nationality. I've lived in Amsterdam for 8 years but lost my heart to India. Since 2018 I'm based in Bangalore. See this video for my refugee story: https://bit.ly/2l17T9h

Q How can you afford to travel so much?
A I saved for 3 years while working full time and now travel vlogging is my job. I work together with tourism agencies but also do some freelance work on the side.

Q (Why) Are you vegetarian?
A I'm vegetarian but not strict. I don't eat any meat, fish, cooked/boiled or fried eggs. I gradually became a vegetarian over the course of 15 years because I disliked the taste of meat more and more. After doing a yoga teacher training in 2015 I also quit fish and the eggs. No matter my food preferences I have no issues with other people not being vegetarian. I don't judge others and kind of expect the same favor from others concerning my own food preferences. It makes for a more friendly world :-)

Q Why do you usually travel alone?
A Because my friends have jobs with limited holidays, kids and partners. Also I really like exploring on my own.
