About me

Welcome, I’m so excited for you to be here!

I’m Emely Phelipa, born & raised on the beautiful island of Curaçao and moved to the Netherlands when I was 20 years old to do a bachelor studies. I finished my studies in 2012 and became a full-time employee in an asset management company. Doing the regular corporate job with the usual overtime I started looking for new hobbies to keep me sane outside of work hours. Soon my hobbies became more than just hobbies and turned into passions that I further pursued.

Now fast forward to 10 years later, I’m still living in the Netherlands and trying to find a balance in my daily life for all the things that I love: fitness, travelling and organising/planning. I’ve decided to quit my corporate job and focus on creating the life that I want. From a combination of my hobbies and passions I’ve founded my own company Pheria. Because as the quote goes: “Love what you do and you won’t have to work a day in your life”.


I’ve been managing a blog & vlog, Fitwanderlifestyle, for over a year now together with my boyfriend Rayni. But I realized that there are quite a lot more that I want to write about that doesn’t fit under FWL. So I decided to start my own blog to share all these thoughts and ideas with you about my passions, interests & hobbies.

Pheria Travels

I’ve also decided to combine my passion for travelling & planning and have launched Pheria Travels as a platform where I offer my travel planning services for people that need help with planning their travels or events abroad.

Social Media Consultant

Next to that, I advice businesses on how to grow their online presence by using primarily social media. It is not limited to only social media accounts, but it also includes designing & setting up a website and using SEO. In this era, having a strong online presence can make or break a business.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions, want to work together or just want to say hi! I hope you enjoy reading my blog and feel free to check out my travel planning services here!
