About

Welcome to Wilderness Coffee & Natural High. My name is Nancy, and I love losing myself (& getting lost) in nature and bizarre landscapes. Being absorbed by the powerful awesomeness of nature’s display. The effect it has on triggering endorphins & the way it fills you up with joy is incredible. You just never lose your sense of wonder. Browse through the posts & pictures, and you can see why.

With my stories I like to take you on a journey of discovery, see the beauty of nature, and share some practical tips along the way. On this blog you can find descriptions of awesome walking tracks, musings about islands, mountains and volcanoes, and various ramblings about weird & wonderful places.

Enjoy & be inspired by the beauty of nature 🙂

What is Wilderness Coffee & Natural High?

I named my blog after two defining expressions I have been using for many years: ‘wilderness coffee‘ and ‘natural high‘. One is part of the essential survival gear for me on any trip, the other a state of mind that occurs naturally when blissfully bumbling around awe-inspiring places. Both being a source of endless joy!

I love to drink coffee in the wilderness, and share these natural highs with you 🙂

About me

My background is in travel planning and SEO. And I’m a bit of a geology geek; I am particularly drawn to places with volcanoes, geothermal valleys, bizarre rock formations & mountains. And kletturs! I’m also fascinated by various natural and weather phenomena. And I’m a Spring person. I just love that time of year when everything just explodes & erupts into life again 😀

Writing a blog has been in the back of my mind for ages, but ‘never got around doing’ until I set up Wilderness Coffee & Natural High in 2017. I love to write stories and I have an inner drive to go out & explore – preferably a bit off the beaten track. It’s something that already manifested itself in childhood, when you’re naturally drawn to the things you like to do most.

I am a restless Dutch native who has travelled extensively in Iceland, Australia and New Zealand, as well as various other places around the world in the past 25 years.
