Around the world with the hottest food and travel profiles.
1. Who are you?
I’m Tamara Stuijt, a 21-year old Dutch student who has a passion for travelling. At the moment I am still studying Tourism Management in the Netherlands and in my free time I have a job at a restaurant and write articles for my blog. I love to photograph, walk through the nature, and to travel. Furthermore, I love to read English books and collect postcards from every city I have been to.
2. What is your blog about?
Girlswanderlust is a website about travelling. It gives all kinds of articles: from tips and hotspots at a certain destination to travel tips in general, like gadgets and packing tips. Together with my good friend Daphne van der Pol I started Girlswanderlust. We want to encourage people to travel by inspiring and informing them. Every Tuesday and Thursday a new article will come online. We are also active on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
3. What is one food tip you would give about Tokyo?
The number one food to try when you are in Tokyo, is sushi of course! The Japanese people eat it for lunch, dinner, and mostly even for breakfast. And what is better than trying your own-made sushi? My ultimate food tip for Tokyo is doing a cooking class and make your own sushi! There are plenty of places in the city where you can take a sushi class.
4. What is one travel tip you would give about Tokyo?
A must visit in Tokyo is the Senso-ji temple in the district Asakusa. Not only features it the most colourful and oldest temple of Tokyo, but it also features the Nakamise Shopping street: a long street of 200 meters with lots of food and souvenir stands. Here you can buy local snacks and typical Japanese stuff as souvenirs.
5. What is the best thing to eat in Tokyo?
One thing that you should definitely try when you are in Tokyo (or Japan in general) is food with Matcha in it. Officially, Matcha is Japanese green tea that has been ground into powder. In Japan, they use this green tea powder for all kinds of food products, including ice cream and chocolate. I really love the taste of Matcha and since it is typical Japanese, you must try it when visiting Tokyo. Of course the Japanese also use the Matcha for tea. They often use it at traditional tea ceremonies, but you can drink it anywhere.
