Hi there! My name is Noraly Schoenmaker and I’m a 31-year-old, Dutch, solo-female traveler – currently on a mission to travel the world by motorbike! I blog about my travels at Itchy Boots. It all started when I went to Australia at age 23 to work in gold mining. I became rich and traveled around the world for 2 years straight. Completely broke, homeless and jobless, I returned to Holland. The next 5 years I worked for an international contractor on big ships all over the world, from Kuwait, Kazakhstan to the Bahama’s and beyond. But even though I saw a lot of the world, it wasn’t the same as full-time travel… So I quit that job and sold all my stuff – to be on the road again! This time I’m traveling by motorbike, which is just the BEST adventure!
