Tag Archives: Who Am I

Welcome

After thinking about it for quite some time you’re now looking at my brand new blog. Yes! So you’re probably wondering who I am, what to expect from this blog and why the name inside wanderer? I will give you an answer to these three questions.

First of all, who am I? My name is Karin Bijlsma, I’m a redheaded graphic designer living in the Netherlands. I was born on a snowy Christmas Day in 1987 and grew up in the North of the Netherlands. I never felt truly at home in the North (quiet and boring!) and moved to Arnhem when I was 20 years old. Since then I’ve lived in Utrecht and in december 2013 I’ve moved to Haarlem.

Although I studied Office Management, I’m working as a freelance graphic designer nowadays. Making choices for the future has never been one of my talents unfortunately and that’s why I had quite a difficult time figuring out what I wanted to do in life. Turning myself into the world of graphic design is still one of the best choices I’ve made for these last couple of years.

A few things that I love besides graphic design include music, books, travel, coffee, food, photography, magazines and home interiors. I love the everyday life and think there’s a story to tell every day of the week. I’m starting this blog because I want to share these stories with people from all over the world.

What can you expect from this blog? I will share my day-to-day stories with you about all the interests mentioned above, for example I will share my favourite spots to drink coffee (looking forward to share this with all of you!).

And that leaves me with the last question, why the name Inside Wanderer? I would call myself a wanderer in life, never sure about what’s next in my life. I’m thinking a lot about life in general and how to make the most of it. That’s how I started thinking about myself as an inside wanderer. Also, I think it’s sounds great so let’s stick with that.
