Let me introduce myself 

I’m Caroline, a 28 year old travel enthusiast from Antwerp, Belgium.

Curious to get to know me better? Here’s simple Q&A to start with. Don’t hesitate to contact me if there’s another thing you’d like to know


  1. Why Ma Valise? The last few years, friends, or friends of friends, used to contact me regularly for travel tips and or nice local addresses, so I decided that it was time to structure them somewhere online. And well… what better way to do that than with a simple blog.
  2. What do you miss most when you travel? My 2 cats Doran & Elin, two fluffy midnight cuddle monsters. Both of them are Sacred Birmans.
  3. What is your go-to cocktail? Definitely a whiskey sour.
  4. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?  Open the shutter blinds and get my morning-routine going.
  5. What’s your favorite carry-on flight essential? A travel size Clinique moisture surge 72-hour to stay hydrated.
  6. If someone invites you over for dinner, what should they prepare? A thai (red) curry beef with a lots of fresh veggies! No (pea)nuts involved, because I’m one of those lucky extremely allergic people.
  7. A tropical island or a snowy mountain? Water addict so salty hair and sandy toes it is.
  8. What’s your favorite visited country so far? Peru, so versatile!
  9. Describe your coolest travel experience so far. Seeing the Northern Lights in Alaska. Since we were camping right next to a huge lake, the sight was just magical.
  10. What is your N° 1 guilty pleasure road trip song? Buena Vista Social Club always gets me into a good vibe.
