The Navigatio

Hi! I’m Nele and I’m a recent English and Creative Writing graduate from the Netherlands. Back in 2014, I decided to move away from my home country and settle in Manchester, UK to secure a place on my degree course at university.

The Navigatio focusses on travel and lifestyle topics.


What do you do for a living?

In the summer of 2018 I graduated university in Manchester with an English and Creative Writing degree. During university I’ve had serveral part time jobs on the side, but now I’m actively looking to start my career in publishing, screenwriting or journalism.

What camera do you use?

For all blog and instagram photography I use my Canon D700 and my iPhone 6S.

What editing software do you use?

I edit all photos on my phone with VSCO.

Are you vegan?

I’m not vegan but I try to avoid animal products as well as I can. All my make-up and beauty products are cruelty free.

Do you want to stay in the UK?

I definitely want to stay in the UK for the forseeable future! It’s become my home.
