Hi! We are Katrijn & Yentl

Also known as Better Travel Together.
Belgian newlyweds on a 1-year honeymoon around the world.

What's our story?


We met in Toledo, Spain during our Erasmus adventure.
Katrijn was doing an internship, while Yentl was 'studying'.


We rented a flat in Antwerp, as Katrijn was studying there and Yentl was working there part-time.


Our first big trip. We visited 11 countries in Europe by train in 22 days.


We bought a house in Antwerp. In the middle between Sint-Niklaas & Westerlo, our home towns.


A busy year as we both were studying and working. We did however sneak in a few city trips.


Our 2017 New Year's resolutions:
travel every month in 2017.

Oktober 2017

@Bettertraveltogether was born. We decided on starting a blog and Instagram together.


We got married and decided to go on a 1-year honeymoon around the world!

Better Travel Together

How do we travel?

We’re no average backpackers, nor are we luxury travellers. I guess we’re something in between. We don’t want a hard bed and we need a bit of luxury and decent food, but we also want to travel as cheap as possible. Katrijn came up with:

Comfortable travel for couples on a budget

This kinda nails it.

Why did we start BetterTravelTogether?

In Oktober 2017 we started our blog and Instagram account. Because we got engaged and decided we would go on a 1-year honeymoon to Asia and Oceania. We thought of it as our way of keeping our friends and family up to date. But that’s only half of the truth. We also wanted to generate an online income. Something we could work on when-ever we want and where-ever we are in the world. It will never be big money, but hopefully (in a few years time) enough to fund our travels (and the costs of the blog itself ;)). So far we’re not really earning any money with it. Unless you count the €5.23 Yentl has earned with Google Ads in the past 2 years from his various blogs.

How will we earn money with this blog?

You can read it all on our support-page.

What will we write about?

Whatever we feel like writing about. It could be personal stuff for our friends and family, but mostly it will be stuff we had to Google for a long time so others won’t have to.

Where have we been?

So far we've visited 40+ countries. Want to know which ones?


Which countries or cities will we visit next during our 1-year honeymoon?


What do we want to do in our lives or which places do we want to visit someday?
