This is always around the world

Kelly is a native Dutch outdoor adventure junkie. Since May 2017 she has been traveling around the world full-time. Living in a campervan in Australia, cycling 3.000 km in Iceland, 6 months in temperatures of minus 35 degrees Celsius, a month cycling around Ireland, hiking 500+ km all across the Canary Islands and so much more. She likes to challenge herself with outdoor activities and that’s why her list is getting bigger and bigger.

As I’m not a person who counts countries, memories mean much more than just an extra stamp on my passport. 

Countries Visited Before Traveling Full Time

  • England
  • France
  • Gambia
  • Germany
  • Greece

I built houses for local people in Malawi (Africa) and really this experience changed my life forever.

Countries Visited together Always Around The World 1.0

Always Around The World 2.0

My goal for Always Around The World is to focus more on injury prevention, training, nutrition, long distance hikes and much much more. For this reason I  finished some studies and started working together with nutritionists, personal trainers and mindset coaches. So the content will be more going in depth to make sure you got the most out of your adventures.

What to expect

Hi you!

Nice to meet you, my name is Kelly and as the founder of Always Around The World I want to introduce myself.

I’m passionate about Bike Touring, Arctic Expeditions, Long Distance Hikes, Backpacking, Volunteering, Mountaineering, Pack rafting, Canoe Trips, Winter sports, and many outdoor activities.

I’m specialized in training the body and mind to prepare yourself the best for your outdoor activity trip and to make sure you don’t get injured. Next to my knowledge of training, I learned so much about nutrition since I started traveling full-time in 2017. 

Always looking for new adventures and testing out new outdoor gear that’s typical of me!
