It's been a while Google+. I've published two books since I last posted here and also have nearly written a whole year's worth of motherhood diaries. Here's where it all began in week one, when all was new, and strange, and oh so exhausting...http://www.asthebirdfliesblog.com/posts/motherhood-diary-week-one
My first week of motherhood and my first diary entry documenting the ups and downs (and more!) of life as a first-time mum.

In July we are going to travel to Amsterdam. Hopefully we have nice weather.  Your pictures are great.

Cycled into town to see the world's first MDMA shop, open for one day only. Admittedly, more a publicity stunt by the Jonge Democraten to get signatures for legalising XTC but it was very well executed with lots of people explaining exactly why they want the Dutch government to consider it. Who knows, maybe it will be another regular feature in Amsterdam soon...?

Are you a freelancer? Are you thinking about becoming one? Want to know what makes me happy and financially afloat as a freelancer?

Here are the twelve most important lessons I've learned in 3+ years of #freelancing .

I hope it's helpful 

http://www.asthebirdfliesblog.com/posts/things-beginner-freelancers-should-know
Over three years ago I left full-time employment and began a new career as a freelance copywriter in order to travel long-terms and pursue my love of writing. I've learnt a lot since then and made a lot of mistakes, so here's a rundown of the lessons I've learned and all the things I wish I'd known as a beginner freelancer.

Staying in self-catering accommodation is my favourite and after 2.5 years of over 30 holiday houses and apartments, I've put together a list of tips to help you choose the best self-catered accommodation for your next #travel  adventure, whatever that may be.

Hope they help!

This morning I attended a course all about getting to know my borrowed country, the Netherlands. It was interesting, enlightening and gave me a new list of places I really want to see... It was also held in an amazing location, the beautiful Het Grachtenhuis museum. If you're also an expat or international resident in NL I highly recommend checking out www.dutch-discoveries.nl for more information!

I write stories about special places, genuine experiences, different perspectives and how travel makes people feel.
