When I started collecting the world’s most beautiful design addresses back in 2010, there was a lot I didn’t know. With a background in Dutch journalism, a little camera of Canon in my pocket and 0 knowledge of publishing books, I started publishing the first articles. As friends told their friends, not long after Petite Passport evolved into a community of people who love design and travel. Nowadays we’re with more than 100.000 people on Instagram. There are more than 1000 addresses on my site. In more than 100 stores around the world you can find the ten self-published travel guides and two magazines. And with the launch of the Petite Passport Membership I can give you even more exclusive tips. All to inspire you to visit the best places!
What makes an address special enough to be featured on Petite Passport? There’s an inspiring story behind it, you feel that they created a unique concept with lots of love and creativity and it is aesthetically so appealing that you would want to live there, so to speak.
What makes Petite Passport unique in my eyes is that I’m your personal hotspotter. All the Tried & Tested articles, all the pictures you see on Instagram, all the addresses in the guides are tested by me personally so I know it’s good enough to recommend. How many open job applications I receive to take over that part: I’ll always visit those new addresses for you in order to recommend only the true gems. And I hope to continue doing that for many years to come!
