Hi, I'm Charlotte

This is Charlies Wanderings

Hi there! I am Charlotte, a travel content creator from Belgium and the founder of this travel blog. It was never my goal to become a digital nomad. Instead I want to create efficient travel guides for people that want to make the most of their holidays.

Charlies Wanderings was founded on Instagram but I longed for more freedom in photography and more insightful writing. What started in 2017 as a solo project quickly turned into a group effort when I met my current boyfriend Christof.

I am a woman with too much energy who tries to combine running this travel blog with a dental practice and becoming a first time mom.

Not a day goes by where I am not thinking about upcoming travel plans and trying to find the most beautiful places and best things to do in each spot.

I am the main writer of Charlies Wanderings and edit all of our photos.

I am a go-with-the-flow type of guy who loves traveling but I prefer to stay more out of the spotlight.

As of 2020 I am the main photographer at Charlies Wanderings.

I prefer adventurous travels where I can relax from time to time with a cold beer in my hand.

Why Charlies Wanderings?

The name stems back from my early days on Instagram when i searched for a catchy username. Back then my blog focussed especially on female solo travel. But over the years it has become so much more and also focusses on adventurous couple holidays.

And as of August 2023 we have our youngest adventurer César who joins us now as well on all of our travels.

Over the past years this blog has grown massively and we now reach millions of people every single year. Something that I could have only dreamed of before. But the goal has remained the same all these years. Inspire people to explore more and take a leap to go on that adventure!

So thank you for making this possible!

Charlotte, Christof & César

Most Asked Questions

How can you travel so much?

I try to take at least 5 trips every year that are at least 1 week long. As a pediatric dentist I have an unlimited amount of holidays. The only catch here is that all my leave is unpaid :p. Christof works for a company so he is bound to a regular set of days off. We usually try to plan our holidays as efficient as possible and don’t shy away from flying halfway across the world for a 1 week road trip.

With this travel blog we want to be an inspiration for those looking for an epic and adventurous holiday and a limited amount of time.

How do you pay for your travels?

So I pretty much have two companies that I run. One is my dental practice, the other one is this travel blog Charlies Wanderings, which is also listed in Belgium as an official company. We travel a lot in a year and one thing I never want to do is touch our savings or the money that I make with dentistry.

As of 2021 I have earned a full time passive income with my blog and every year it’s gaining more and more traction, which means more funds for upcoming travels.

In the past I have also worked together with a couple of tourism boards but with my current workflow those aren’t manageable anymore. I need to know my travel calendar 6 months from before and press trips are usually announced max 1 month from before.

Depending on the type of trip and the destination I will reach out to certain hotels/travel companies to set up a barter deal.
