Hi! I’m Melissa, the face behind Rosy Melissa!
Hello! I’m Melissa, the girl behind Rosy Melissa. I am a 23-year old Dutchie enjoying life and exploring the world while leaving a positive impact on the destination. I’ve been loving writing since I was a little girl and this blog is my writing passion and travel passion combined.
I grew into the passion of responsible travel and spreading this message in a fun, casual way. Without judgement and with easy tips to allow the travellers to still travel how they used to. They don’t have to completely change the way they travel.

My writing Background Story
My passion for writing began when I was 10 years old. I found out how much I enjoyed writing simple stories and started writing a lot more until I was 16 years old. Up to that point, I wrote thousands of words per day and could write all day if I wanted to. This ended when I was 16 years old – I got very perfectionistic and my creativity suddenly disappeared. I couldn’t write anymore.
This lasted for years and I finally decided to go back into writing, but at a much slower pace. I started this travel blog in March 2018 as a way to slowly get back into writing. No one was reading my blog in the beginning, leaving me with the absolutely best opportunity to start getting back into writing and leaving my perfectionism behind. Since March 2018 – my blog grew into a true passion, a business with thousands of people reading it each month. My love for writing came back and I can finally say that writing feels like a second nature again! I am so grateful to share my passion with so many people each month.
