I have been thinking about blogging in Dutch for a while and I also wanted to start a blog where I have more options than with blogger. So from now on you can find me on my new personal blog (in Dutch) and my already existing English bookblog!

Lately I've been painting again. The portret of the woman I'm already quite happy with, I just want to change the background a little, finish the earrings and clothes, and the rest are just minor details. The portret of the man still needs a bit of work.

A couple of weeks ago my friend Suzan and I set out for England. We spend the first week of our holiday in London. We stayed in a hostel a little outside the city center, but it was easy to get everywhere by public transportation. In a week we managed to see quite a lot, but I definitely want to go back some time because there are still a lot of places I would like to visit.
We visited the London Zoo, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, Covent Garden and famous sites like the House of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Kings Cross Station (because we are Harry Potter geeks) and Chinatown. My favorite place was probably the Natural History Museum. It was gigantic and we couldn't see everything we wanted to see in one whole day so we had to come back another day. On the Natural History Museum I will do a seperate post, since I made so many photos there.
Our week in London was very busy. Each day we did a lot and we traveled around a lot by public transportation. Our second week in England we spent in Kent, at a very different pace. Public transportation on the country side turned out to be a lot less reliable! Eventhough we didn't do as much in our second week as we did in the first, we still had a great time and we got to relax a bit.
I hadn't been to a zoo in ages, but the London Zoo was a lot of fun. I really appreciated that they had a lot of information on nature conservation and really tried to make people aware of the effect humans can have on nature.

Lately I haven't been crafting a lot myself, but I have stumbled upon a lot of things that fuel my imagination. I have decided to start a new feature where I will be sharing things that inspire me!
