Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog. My name is Yulia van de Laar and I am a travel and food fanatic. I live in a small village near Eindhoven in North Brabant, The Netherlands, where I live with my husband and daughters. I originally come from Indonesia where I get my passion on cooking and travelling from. My dad used to travel a lot for business and my mum is still experimenting a lot when she cooks. Both of these inspirational figures play very important roles in my pursuit of happiness.
Blue sky Red pepper is my travel / food blog. It is a blog about my life in the Netherlands and how I see this country and other countries in Europe through travelling and eating.
There are thousands of travel blogs out there and how should my blog be any different? This is a tough question to answer! So here are the points that I think really interpret my blog:
- About the The Netherlands from someone who is not from the Netherlands.
- About travelling in Europe from someone who is not from Europe.
- About Eindhoven from someone who is not from Eindhoven.
I have worked for both printed and broadcast media since the beginning of my career in Indonesia and later on in the Netherlands. With history and literature as education backgrounds, I can’t help to admit that my passion for writing and travelling keeps triggering me to discover the world.
At the moment I blog, write freelance for a magazine in a small municipal near Eindhoven (De Uitstraling), I am a cook and a full time mom of two beautiful daughters.
