I'm a 29 year-old Dutch woman from Amsterdam. I'm a neuropsychologist and have travelled quite a bit, spending time on different continents, and lived in Turkey for 3 years. I'm very much interested in different cultures, and when I travel I generally prefer to stay in places that feel authentic. Space and luxury is not important to me. As long as it's clean enough and the neighbourhood is safe to go out on my own, I'm happy. What activities I like to do depends on the location. If it's a city, I generally like to go around exploring. Besides seeing the tourist attractions, I like to ask locals to recommend some good places to go. If I travel for longer, I enjoy backpacking without planning ahead. Having the freedom to be spontaneous, to be flexible and let plans be guided by local experiences is important to me when I'm on vacation.
