Hello everyone! 

My name is Romy. I created this travel blog in 2016, while I was still a student and just craving adventure. Back then juggling studying and travel blogging and now I’m balancing my own photography business with an adventurous nomadic lifestyle. In short, I’m an Africa enthusiast, avid hiker, adventurer at heart, full-time photographer and always looking for new challenges. As a student I started traveling on a very limited budget and I’ve continued traveling in true backpacker style. Whatever your budget, there’s always a way to travel. I started this website as a way to document my travels, but also to show you  how to make your travel dreams come true. I have a broad spectrum of interest, so whether you love culture, hiking, safaris or beach holidays, I’ll have something to share with you. Follow along while I keep exploring every corner of the world.


What can you expect from Brunette at Sunset?

You can expect an honest opinion about every place I visit. Travel is mostly wonderful, but I won’t sugarcoat when it isn’t. Personally I even kind of enjoy it when things go awry sometimes and I have to problem solve on the road. I hope to give you real advice that will help you plan your dream trip! So expect budget guides, travel routes and inside tips as well. Also, I like to think of myself as quite the dare devil. I may not look like it, but I love stuff like bungee jumping, swimming with sharks and would love to try skydiving. Finding the most beautiful places on earth to do these kind of things is what I live for. 


Do you have any questions about a specific destination or need some advice? Feel free to ask me anything. You can ask your question on Facebook, Instagram, or e-mail me at I always answer my messages personally. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
