Dutch Wannabe is a blog created by Lesia Joukova, an expat from Russia living in The Netherlands. In this online space Lesia is sharing her insider tips from someone who is not quite an insider but not an outsider either. This blog is all about discovering your surroundings, getting settled in and retaining that sense of wonder that we all get as tourists Β (or as kids).

From guides to lifestyle and fashion posts Dutch Wannabe captures Lesia’s perspective on life in the “hoge land” and invites you on an unforgettable journey to discover the wonders of the Dutch, hidden or not.


Please contact me at lesia@dutchwannabe.com if you have a business proposal. I am open to collaborations with brands and available for sponsored reviews of attractions and venues in The Netherlands as well as specific social media campaigns or ambassadorship. You can download my media kitΒ here.

I am always on the lookout for interesting places and books to feature in the “My Literary Atlas” project. I am also open for social media management opportunities including photography and writing assignments.
