Get to know us

We’re a Dutch-German couple who decided to follow
our hearts and make a dream come true.

Hi, I am Evelien.

As a true Dutch, I can speak multiple languages and was born with the travel bug. I have studied twice in Paris, lived in Madagascar, and travelled through most parts of Europe in my latest job. Next to a passion for traveling, I am often found in the kitchen baking & cooking delicious recipes for my friends, family and Chris.

Creating my own travel-food-blog and cookbook is my long-held dream.

Hi, I am Christoph.

With German roots, I was born in South Africa, and the adventurous travel bug infected me immediately. In the past 10 years I have lived in different countries, learning sailing in Australia, surfing in Hawaii, and skiing & hiking in the Swiss Alps. I love entertaining people, and sharing homemade food and a good glass of wine with friends and with Evelien.

My vision is to inspire and motivate others to follow their heart and live their dreams! Through this Culinary Vespa-Tour I plan to realize my vision and dream of riding “Dolce Vita” through Italy.
