Welcome to The Secret Of Being Me

My name is Pretima Gobardhan-van ‘t Hof and welcome to my food, lifestyle & travel blog.
My blog is basically a 101 on what’s it like to be me.

I was born and raised in The Hague in The Netherlands.
I hold a Bachelor of Health and I am currently a radiology professional at HMC (Haaglanden Medical Center).

My parents are from Surinam and my roots lie in India.
My family and culture are a huge part of my life.
I have 2 sisters, both of them are professional dancers and I married my husband Sander van ‘t Hof in 2010.
In 2020 we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Isha Aditi Devi.
She came into our lives and changed our entire world forever!

With Sander I moved a couple of times and since 2017 we call Voorschoten, the Netherlands home!

I love spending time with my family, cooking or baking in my kitchen and I like to entertain and throw parties.

So, come along on my journey as I venture through life and fill these pages with my discoveries and adventures.
