Hi, my name is Thinkie, welcome to my blog!
I'm a student in cultural studies, a museum enthusiast, a scrapbooker and an art journaler. I love to travel within Europe and I enjoy photography. You can read more about me on my homepage.
And in Dutch I enjoy:
I live, I love, I create, I capture, I learn, I enjoy.
I started the month with a weekend at fantasy event Castlefest. On saturday I went with a whole group of friends and acquaintances, on sunday I went with Wilma, Danja and Bram. It was hot and sunny and we mostly hung out in the grass, listening to bands.
Maarten, Rob, J. and I met up in 's-Hertogenbosch for a boat trip to Heusden. A nice, sunny day with friends!
I visited Guido. We cooked together at his place and had a fun evening hanging out together. Yay for new friends!
Thanks to some really good discounts, Roeland and I got to spend two days in the north of France. We visited Lille and the new Louvre branch in Lens.
I cooked Maarten a pre-birthday dinner.
I attended the monthly film night, this time at the arthouse cinema. A walk around town with Guido, a nice dinner followed by the movie 'Bird People', which was ok with kind of a weird twist.
Bram and I like to stroll along the streets and canals of Leiden, catching up and catching some fresh air (and some icecream in early august). During the El Cid-week (the week the freshman students of Leiden are introduced to student life) we went to get a cup of hot chocolate at the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden during our walk and found ourselves in the middle of a (free) classical concert by a student orchestra (Collegium Musicum). Nice!
Kimberly treated my to a couple of days in Madrid. She had to go pick up her new puppy there and didn't feel like going alone. Nice time, nice company, nice city, nice museums!
I attended the fireworks at Scheveningen with Bram, Guido and F.. I've seen better fireworks, but we had a nice evening + restaurant dinner.
Wilma keeps bugging me for empty glass jars for her current jam-making frenzie. Thanks to her, I have pretty much become the crazy girl digging trough her friend's trash for empty jars. Thank you Bram, glad you survived eating the jam Wilma sent in return...
I've been growing basil, and used it to make my own pesto for a dinner with Roeland and former neighbour M.. Recipe in Dutch. After dinner we played rummikub and won one round each (NOW I get why it's not Roeland's favorite game: he doesn't always win! Got him to play another two rounds later in the month which verified it ;-) ).
Maarten and I saw the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who. Timetravelling dinosaurs, quips, pretty girls, 19th century London and the drone of Frankenstein.
I attended the opening of the new Meermanno-exhibition about birds. I have yet to see the exhibition itself, but the opening was nice, with Ivo de Wijs, our curator Erik Geleijns and a few other speakers and a short concert by Ellen ten Damme and her magpie. Click here to listen to a radio show with recordings of the opening.
Bram and I visited the Lakenhal to see the exhibition on Gerrit Dou just in time before it ended. Worth while!
Maarten and I spent a day exploring Naarden, a good example of a fortified town. We spent most of that time at the Vestingmuseum, and did a boat trip around part of the town.
