Ventures by Sabrina icon transparent

Hi there,

I’m Sabrina – living in Antwerp, Belgium but travelling the world as much as I can.  I live in a beautiful country with a rich history, and enjoy the good life but sometimes I just need to escape. 

I have travelled ever since I can remember.  Travel means going from one geographical place to another but think about it… it’s not just about going to that place is it?

I created Ventures by Sabrina to inspire you about travel and to live a life beyond your imagination.  It was Einstein – one of the most brilliant minds in human history – who said that imagination is more important than knowledge.  Not that knowledge is not important but it only tells us what we know now while imagination embraces everything there will ever be to know.  Imagination can take you to wherever you want… life is a journey so let’s find out where the road can take you.

Unlike many other travel & lifestyle bloggers I didn’t make a career switch.  I always knew I wanted to travel the world and work in the tourism industry. 

And so it happened… I graduated in Tourism Management, have worked in various positions in the travel industry and have travelled extensively ever since.

I worked in a travel agency and at the Sales Office of Seabourn & Cunard before I started as Cruise Sales Specialist onboard the luxurious cruise ships of Seabourn Cruise Line.  The ships sail to the most beautiful destinations worldwide.  I was so lucky because as part of my job I could take tours with local touroperators and could see the places in the best way possible. 

After 3 years I decided to go back to Belgium to take advantage of a land based opportunity but that didn’t go as planned.  I have been job hopping in the Belgian travel industry until I ended up at Cruise Plus – an agency specialized in luxury cruises.  And then the pandemic happened… I had a lot of time to reflect and I learned the hard way that I was in no way living the life I wanted. 

So long story short… I gave up everything and applied for a job at sea again.  I also finally decided to start with my own website – something I wanted to do for such a long time already!  I have travelled around the globe and have learned a lot.  By writing it all down on my website I give you a bit of insight in all my ventures. 

I have always been very curious about the world.  I read books and watched documentaries about all kinds of topics like whales, astronomy, ancient civilizations, geology. 

My mom was interested in those things as well.  She had books from Stephen Hawking and other astronomy books where as a young girl I read about the stars and galaxies in our universe.  I will tell you a bit more about our universe because just like Hawking I believe that the more people are interested in science, the more answers we can find on fundamental questions about our existence and the future of the universe. 

We have such a beautiful planet… it took billions of years to create the world we live in today and often we don’t see it because we take everything for granted.  I believe that if we would spend more time in nature, we would realize more how exceptional our world is. 

When I grew up I always wanted to move to a place where I could live near the ocean to meet dolphins.  I believe it was a program called Adventure Bay who made me dream of a place like that.  Dolphins are one of the most intelligent species on earth and whales in general have always intrigued me… especially the Killer Whale.  A couple of years ago I did research and booked a trip to Norway to finally go and meet them.  It was and still is one of my best travel experiences ever!  I will give you all the tips and information you need to make the best chance to see them in their natural habitat.

There are so many other things I would like to share with you and I hope you find the inspiration you are looking for to live your best life.  My advice to you is to explore the world as much as you can.  It enables you to see things ‘beyond your imagination’ and it will be of great value for your personal growth as well.  So what are you waiting for?

Happy travelling!
