“So what is it that you do exactly?” Although I feel I share a fair bit of my personal life online, people I meet often can’t work out what I do for a living. Some think I am a full-time London tour guide. Others think I couldn’t possibly be working as I’m always travelling. (I wish!) So to clarify this once and for all, let me tell you what goes on a typical day in the life of Dutch Girl in London.
On the final Sunday of the month I always reflect on the last four weeks. May is always an especially festive because it’s both mine and hubby’s birthday month. In between bad colds I got to celebrate my big 40th birthday with my family and closest friends. But of course far more happened in May. Read all about it in today’s ‘Reflections’!
On the last Sunday of the month I always look back on what I’ve been up to in the past weeks. What were my personal highlights? What films and series did I watch? What exhibitions did I visit and which countries did I travel to? Find the answers in my Reflections on April.

There’s more to that perfect Insta travel photo than meets the eye. It often takes a lot of careful planning and selfish behaviour towards others. I found this out the hard way during our recent travels. Find out more about my painful experiences here.
On the last Sunday of the month, I always write a little recap of that month for my series Reflections. In today’s review: our new worm pets, discovering that Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth is a fan of my music, and the winner of my recent blog giveaway!
On the last Sunday of the month, I always write a little recap of that month for my series ‘Reflection’s. Today I’m looking back at the exciting new music I’ve discovered, the 33 (!!) films and series I’ve seen so far this year and much more!

From King Crimson to Heaven 17, from Propaganda to Queen, from stage to screen, this week has immersed me in music from start to finish.
Reflections on… October 2018. Looking back, this month seemed to have revolved around charity and volunteering. But there were also several trips and of course plenty of films I need to recommend you to watch (or definitely not). Read the full article to discover what I’ve been up to this month!
You can learn a lot about other people’s personalities in everyday situations. When hubby and I found ourselves on a train the other day and asked someone to move from our reserved seats, the absurd reaction that followed left us completely baffled.
Reflections on… September 2018. This month I stood face-to-face with ancient terracotta warriors and travelled from sun-soaked Barcelona to tempestuous Liverpool. And there was more, but you’ll have to read the full article to discover all of this!
Who doesn’t miss those days when you could still play with flashy toys that had all sorts of buttons you could push and turn, producing animal sounds and wild flickering lights without people staring at you? I’m returning to those childhood days this weekend as by the time you read this I’ll be happily twiddling some knobs, pressing colourful buttons and flicking switches in Barcelona. Exactly what, why and where, you find out in this article.
On 1 and 2 August I will be part of a group exhibition of photos taken on the new Samsung S9 mobile phones. Since not all my friends and online followers will be able to attend the show, I’ve been asked by them to share some of my photos online. Because your wish is my command, here are some of my photos!
