About Me

SAM_4116I’m Nicci, a 24 year old Brit who has just finished her year as an expat studying in Leiden, Holland.

It is my desire to see as much of the world as I can, and I have been lucky enough to travel to a lot of beautiful places across Europe (and a couple of places beyond) already. This blog is an account of the adventures I had whilst in the Netherlands, my experience of being a British expat as a whole, and beyond that, my experiences in any other country I visit.

Aside from travel, my passions currently lie in Consumer Psychology, Marketing, and Advertising, and I have even got a second blog specialising in this area which you can read here: Consumer Contemplations. I’ve just started my first ‘real-world’ full-time job as a Research Executive and am still learning the ropes, navigating my way through office politics and attempting to create something that mildly resembles a healthy work/life balance. 

I have recently started to learn Welsh – Dw i’n dysgu siarad Cymraeg – and although I’m still only in the early stages of learning, so far I’m really enjoying it and am finding learning another language really rewarding and fulfilling.

Between my hectic work/travel/social schedule I spend a lot of my time sketching, daydreaming, and writing (I don’t know how I would get by without pouring my jumbled-up thoughts into these blogs..!).

So thanks for stopping by, I hope you find something that interests you, and I’d love to hear about your experiences of travel/being an expat/anything else really!


  1. Hi there!
    I only recently discovered your blog and have had a lot of fun looking around and reading your adventures! I’m currently located in Dublin but as an original Dutchie who also studied in Leiden I love to read your take on my favourite place in NL! Best wishes for the new year! xx

  2. Hello! I came to say thank you for following me and your blog is so lovely I just had to follow you back! Looking forward to reading your posts 🙂 xx
