Welcome to Wilderness Coffee & Natural High. Here you can find various ramblings about weird & wonderful places, descriptions of walking tracks, and musings about islands, mountains and volcanoes. With my stories I like to take you on a journey of discovery, and give you practical tips as well. I hope you will be inspired by the beauty of nature 🙂
My name is Nancy, and I love losing myself (& getting lost) in bizarre landscapes, being absorbed by the powerful awesomeness of nature’s display. The effects it has on triggering endorphins & filling you up with joy are just incredible. You never lose your sense of wonder. Browse through the posts & pictures, and you can see why.
This is my travel blog, named after two defining expressions I have been using for many years:
Wilderness Coffee & 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 🙂

My background is in travel, and I’m a bit of a geology geek. I am particularly drawn to mountains, rocks & volcanoes. And kletturs! And I’m a Spring person. I love that time 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 – sometimes 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 lived in Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and most recently Iceland. Over more than 20 years I have travelled to various places around the world. Quite a few of them still with and old-skool filmroll camera, before I finally got my first digital one in 2006.
