I’m a Dutch undergraduate (in political science, god help me) currently living in England. I started blogging to share my experiences with living abroad, but this blog quickly gave way to my love of languages and stories, and the escape they provide from dull and quarrelsome things like politics.

My favourite writers and great inspirations are J.R.R. Tolkien, Hilary Mantel, Karen Blixen, Michael Ondaatje, Thea Beckman, and John Steinbeck.

When I don’t have a nose in a book, fictional or study-related, I enjoy swimming, sailing, travel, good conversation, lazy afternoons and cooking.

Thank you for visiting, all comments are welcome.
