London on a double-bike

On sunday the 10th of June I left my parents place on a double-bike. Together with a friend we cycled to Zwolle, took a train and prepared ourselves in the evening for a trip to London. As we took the boat to Harwich the next day I didn’t know what to expect as I hadn’t visited England before.

As we talked with locals it turns out it’s much more enjoyable if you take the small hilly roads towards your destination.

Holiday to Denmark, Berlin and the south of France

i’ve been on holiday for most the past month. The urge to travel has been growing since a few years, and this year I’ve been to several new cities in Europe. After the QS Conference in San Francisco in June, I came back, only to pack my bags once again to hop on a bus to Denmark. My father organises a yearly travel group to the Haervejsmarchen. Together with Chantal we joined him!

An interview for the Perfect Human and other publications

Two months ago I spent some time before a camera for a documentary series of the VPRO. The series is called The Perfect Human and explores how technology helps us create a better being. My project with Colliers: The Quantified Workplace is highlighted in the interview. You can watch it online here. At the end of the past year, I spend an afternoon at the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, to contribute towards a document about e-Health.

Something's brewing!

And it’s beer! Well it’s stored now and bubbling away! Yesterday afternoon I’ve brewed my first batch of beer. With the gear and knowledge of a friend, we manufactured 48 liters of pale ale. The sunny afternoon also was a perfect opportunity for my new camera, so I took some tests shots. Here’s the brewery in my backyard: The recipe we decided on included star-anise and lemongrass. Sadly the coriander seeds got lost and we skipped those.
