About-me fotoTraveller, writer, foodie, feminist who loves books. How I wish this would sum me up. But really, I am simply aspiring to all of the above.

Except the books – I don’t aspire to love books, I love books!

Really, I am a Dutch woman (girl? woman? when do you stop being one and become the other?) and I love so many things.

I love the crispy cold air on an autumn afternoon. I love coffee. I love to dream. I love the taste of strawberries and the smell of a barbecue on a summer evening. I love comfort and I love comfort even more after some discomfort. I love to run. I love to see new places and meet new people. I also love to be alone with a cup of tea and a good book on a rainy morning. I love my boyfriend Erik. I love adventures, big and small, and I love books (did I mention books already? And travel?).

But mostly, I love to learn. New things, new insights and new skills. I want to push myself, always – almost. And writing is my latest obsession. So really, this blog is me, jumping into the deep scary pool of learning by doing. I just hope I learn how to swim before I drown in my own insecurity about my writing.

Care to help me stay afloat and to have me learn this amazing new skill of telling stories? Please, have a look around at the various posts and tell me what you think.
