Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by. My name is Jules short for Julie. I am a full-time banker, a part-time psychology student and an active casual traveller. I was born and raised in Surabaya. At age 16, I moved to Dunedin and then to Sydney at age 20. Both cities taught me to appreciate life overseas and only from that experience I learnt and discovered my passion for unveiling the world. I travelled to many places for cultural pleasure, yet I still haven't seen enough of the world. I quit my job and left my friends behind at age 26 to pursue my desire to further travel to Europe for 6 months and today that is more than a decade. Currently, I am living in beautiful Amsterdam after having lived in London for a couple of months. My dream is to continue relocation. I hope my stories/blogs inspire you to see more of the world. Lots of love, Jules.



Asia » China » The Great Wall December 31st 2019

China was the hardest country to enter and exit. It took me loads of drama to be in Beijing and to leave Beijing. Not only the immigration regulations were strict, but the language barrier was also a massive issue. The Chinese public security was extremely tight, multiples surveillance cameras were installed like in every block of the city. Being in Beijing get frustrating at times, however Beijingers are sweet which made the drama forgettable. I spent four days in Beijing under the Beijing tourism 144 hours visa-free program. My travel point began in Beijing city, where I took half of of the day to recover from long haul flights. I took it easy the next day by spending the whole day strolling around the city for tasty bites of traditional cuisine. The smell of Chinese food ... read more

Living in Amsterdam truly gives me the privilege to travel around Europe either for a weekend getaway or a short break. Germany is one of the few countries where I frequently spend my weekend getaway. I go there at least 3 times a year to pay regular visits to my good old friends in Frankfurt and Munich and the other times to explore more of the country. I particularly love the nature in German little towns and villages where I can enjoy freshly baked bread and freshly picked flowers at the local market, take a stroll in the forest, get on the bike from a village to the next one or read a book in serenity. I recently visited a little town in Germany called Rheinfelden which is about 20 minutes away from Basel. It's quite ... read more
