Embracing challenges and learning about the unknown, Hanne Gietema has learned to represent the best version of herself in her works and daily life. After travelling through parts of Asia, Europe, the United States and having lived in Thailand, it's now time for her to settle down in Bali. From her experiences on the road, she has learned that almost every place can be called ‘home’ and friends are everywhere. In her writing, she enjoys putting her experiences into words and creating a story for the readers. Her ultimate goal is to create a connection between the story and the people, kind of like building a relationship. Sitting around and doing nothing are definitely not her style; she likes to be on the go and meet new people as well as exploring new places. She also loves cooking, running, spending time on the beach, and driving scooter around to discover new places.
