About me

Hi there, I’m Renee, otherwise known as The Holidaymaker. There are two things about travelling that I love as much as the trip itself- the planning before I go and sharing my experiences with others when I return. 

My first trip abroad was to Germany. I just turned 17 and was travelling alone to attend high school for credit followed by a holiday with my Oma. That experience forever changed me. Fast forward to today, and I am still travel obsessed. I turned that love of travel, combined with my joy of writing and photography into a travel blog. I am not your typical travel blogger, I didn’t quit my corporate day job to travel the world, rather I use my vacation time wisely to travel abroad and weekends to travel local. 

I am a bit of a daydreamer. It easily starts with a photo, an online article, a conversation with a friend. The next thing you know I am in full blown information gathering mode. I research obsessively and tirelessly to find the perfect accommodations. The search for the unique and the boutique, and yes, I will often build my itinerary around those amazing places to stay. I just love architecture.  

My ideal holiday is knowing enough about the place I am travelling to, but without planning every last detail. About splitting my time between seeing the main attractions and getting lost in the city streets and discover the undiscovered. 

This was the inspiration for Dream Plan Experience – a place of information sharing- whether that is a day trip close to home or travel far away to a new destination. I hope my experiences inspire you to plan your next adventure.
