Anneke de Bundel was born in Belgium and raised in the Netherlands. Studied journalism and got her  first pay check in communist Yugoslavia. Learnt Spanish in the post-Franco decade. Met the love of her  life in a New York without Ground Zero.

Her specialty is narrative journalism.  Topics are on the crossroad of travel and culture. They are portraits of people struggling while looking for happiness. Usually against the current. Sometimes they travel physically. Sometimes they travel in their heads to a much happier past. Sometimes happiness is just around the corner at the cash and carry.

De Bundel travels often with alter-ego mrs. Villager, a cool chick slightly middle aged. Where as De Bundel writes serious travel features for magazines, mrs. Villager stumbles around the continents with humor. Together with mrs. Nomad, a slightly neurotic woman with a poltergeist phobia, they write about accommodation across the world which are to be found at Nomadandvillager.com
