Just A Quick Update

It’s been a while since I wrote here. One way or the other I just can’t seem to sit down and start writing. Or allow myself time to do so.

Now that I’m on my summer break I hope to change that a little. And maybe even catch some kind of rhythm so I can keep up with it all once I resume work .
I’ve started on translating my older posts into Dutch again. There are still many posts to translate but it’s a start.

It’s funny to see all the old posts, especially when they are about good food in different cities. Not necessarily because they are about food in general but because they are about meat and I thought it was “delicious”. Hilarious because I don’t even want to think about eating that now. I don’t even know what most meats taste like anymore (and I don’t miss it either). It would probably literally make me sick if I had to eat it again now, just because my body is no longer used to it. Anyway, this post wasn’t about meat in the first place 😉

I’ll be leaving for London again soon and I can’t wait! It doesn’t matter how often I go back there, there always seems to be something new to do and places to explore. I already have a lot of plans for this trip but I probably don’t have enough time to do it all. Oh well, that gives me a good reason to go back even more often.

That’s it for this update Here’s to a new blog rhythm and a lot of fun trips!

Nature On Your Doorstep


When I think of nature in The Netherlands, the first thing that comes to mind is the beautiful are “De Veluwe“. Our National Green Heart is a fantastic area to hike or cycle in. Unfortunately I don’t live very close so I’m not there a lot.

But our small country has more to offer when it comes to nature. There are very beautiful natural areas controlled by State Forest Control spread out over the country, so there is always a natural area close to where you are. Not only are there awesome forests and natural areas from State Forest Control close by, there could be some hidden gems right on your doorstep!

Travel In Your Head

You can travel in many ways, in luxury or on budget and everything inbetween. And if travelling is one of your hobbies you try to get away as much as you can. Unfortunately my budget doesn’t allow me to travel 100 times a year, which is probably the truth for most people. But luckily for me there is another way to get away for a bit. By travelling in my head!

No, I didn’t go crazy and I’m also not sitting at home in my bikini with the heat turned up high pretending I’m on a tropical island somewhere. But I still travel to far country and strange surroundings regularly in my head; with books!

Book: Ascendancy (Godswar Series #1)


A thousand years ago, a dying race of Immortals left behind an enduring legacy: the Ascendants, mortal men and women capable of binding hundreds or even thousands of others to their will. Together these “Bound” and their magic form the foundation of nearly every society in the world. But everything is about to change. A few rare mortals possess the ability to channel magic without an Ascendant bond, and these “Unbound” renegades finally have a leader: a gifted young sorceress bent on freeing those who share her power…no matter the cost.

What's my next tattoo?

For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by tattoos. I just love them. Granted some are not as good as others but a lot of them out there are amazing and real works of art. So I guess it came as no surprise for those around me that I ended up with a few myself.

I got my first one in August 2008, the purple butterfly on the left. I wanted something that defined infinity for me, and the connection with the Universe. But I didn’t just want the infinity symbol so eventually I found this. The butterfly is made up of two infinity symbols but it’s also one line from one antenna to the other, so one line from beginning to end with bends and curves just like life. The colour purple is for the connection with the Universe, but also with my own body and mind and to all living things around me. Because I believe we are all one. That’s what this tattoo means to me, but for everyone else, it’s just a butterfly.
