Hiiii! =) My name is Rachael. I was born and raised in sunny California but then discovered my love for travel and packed my bags and moved to Amsterdam over 5 years ago. My Dutch husband, Christian, and I really like showing people from all countries how amazing our city of Amsterdam is and are in pursuit of exploring every corner of the planet; I especially love unique experiences (some of our favorites include throwing tomatoes at the Tomatina tomato fight in Spain, sleeping on the Saharan sand dunes in Morocco and an epic 10-day roadtrip around Iceland), venturing off the tourist trail as well as making new friends from all walks of life. We are excellent house guests and think the best way to travel is through the eyes of locals. Starting in November 2013 after our wedding, we'll be backpacking for 6 months around Asia. The world is our playground =)!
