After the many lockdowns we had to endure, it's time to enjoy the Summer again as we used … Continue reading Beach time!
Since I was young, I have had a love-hate relationship with water. On one hand I loved playing in the pool, pretending I was a mermaid, on the other hand I got fearful as soon as the water got deeper. There is something about that sensation of not being able to touch the ground, and … Continue reading Just keep swimming
Five months in, and I’m going to be completely honest with you. We ate meat! Not a lot, only one time, but I feel guilty. Why do I feel like that? It was my own choice to do this.

Ever since I can remember I was scared of them. It probably didn’t help that my sister thought it … Continue reading Itsy Bitsy Spider
A short post today as I felt a bit uninspired the last couple of days and I’m writing this with a terrible headache. Oh, how you’ve got to love getting older. It seemed not that long ago when I could go out, enjoy a few drinks and still be fine the next day. Well, not … Continue reading A night out in your 40’s
Freedom. It should be a common thing, but unfortunately current affairs prove that it’s not. That’s why I want to tell you about a very important celebration in the Netherlands called: Bevrijdingsdag (Liberation Day)!
