How it began..
It all began 5 years ago when I started the Instagram account @htspt_rotterdam. This profile gave me a platform to showcase all the best places from my hometown, Rotterdam. As my follower count grew I realized this could be so much more than just a social media account – and thus, HTSPT flourished into the company it is today. After years of photographing and writing about the most popular restaurants, hotels and events on our website, my team and I decided to take another big step and expand from online to offline. In the spring of 2019 we, along with English editor in chief, Jazmarae Beebe, created our first real printed city guide – which you can now find in shops throughout the Netherlands as well as our own webshop.
When Covid-19 hit at the beginning of 2020, almost all projects within my company came to a standstill. Because of this, we suddenly had extra time on my hands. We thought hard about what we were most passionate about, and what came to mind was: travel, photography and sharing experiences. This led to the birth of chapter fernweh. Our goal? To unravel the captivating stories woven into each European country and capital, spark the wanderlust in fellow travelers, and navigate the intricate journey of self-discovery as we embrace the enigma of our thirties.
We truly believe that the best travel experiences are the ones we craft together. We’re absolutely thrilled to team up with fellow explorers, travel brands, tourism boards, and those in the hospitality realm who share our fiery passion. Every month, we spill the beans on our own travel tales, share practical tips, and dish out freshly discovered European gems that truly resonate with our dynamic community of fellow seekers. With an engaged tribe that stretches across Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and TikTok, boasting a whopping 50,000 strong, we’re all brought together by our shared love for culture, nature, and the irresistible lure of gastronomy.
We’ve already had the absolute joy of joining forces with over 100 brands in the travel and hospitality industry – and guess what? We’re all in for extending our knack and knack for a good partnership to your project too. When you collaborate with us, you’re not just adding authenticity and impact – you’re adding that special fernweh touch that makes your project genuinely shine.
