It's been a while. Well, on here at least. I've moved my blogging activities over to my portfolio to have everything in one place. If you want to keep track make sure you follow me on my Facebook page to be notified of any new posts!

Since the beginning of the year I have been working on a cultural food blog with my friend Patty van der Aa. As a journalist, she takes care of the wording, while I focus on the images. It's still a work in progress but yesterday we launched our first posts!

Our blog What Mom Would Cook focusses on the stories behind the dishes. Dishes your mother made when you where growing up and that still bring you comfort till this day.

Unfortunately it's just in Dutch for now, but we'll hope to provide an English translation in the future. We are always looking for people that are willing to share their stories on our blog. So if you are living near Amsterdam feel free to contact us!

Last weekend we went to the Scheepvaart Museum (Maritiem Museum) as part of our new resolution to go out and see more of the sights our lovely city has to offer. Boy, have museums changed from when I was a child. These days everything is much more interactive.

 We found the museum itself pretty interesting and learned lots of new things about our seafaring history. And while you are there anyway, the museum restaurant Stalpaert is pretty good.

The above pictures were all taken with my new Samsung EX2F compact camera. I purchase it because I find my DSLR too heavy to carry around on little trips like this, but I still like to have a camera around that can give me pretty good image quality.
