I finally got around to rewriting the About page on my site to reflect recent changes.
Myrthe Korf. I am Myrthe Korf. Before returning to my native Holland in 2013, I spent over a decade living and working in the South Caucasus. Writing and editing and empowering people make my heart beat faster. I love supporting people to develop their talents, knowledge and skills.

Thank you for the tip, Anastasia. I will definitely check Linda's work out. I have a few, still undefined, ideas for diving deeper into and writing about reverse culture shock, but I don't have the peace of mind (yet) to brainstorm, discuss them with others and develop them into a solid project.

Apparently women don't write cool books (whatever the criteria for a cool book): I counted only four books by women (of which two by the same author). And apparently neither do I read cool books: I read only 7 from this list, though there are a few more I want to read.

Jaroslav Flegr is no kook. And yet, for years, he suspected his mind had been taken over by parasites that had invaded his brain. So the prolific biologist took his science-fiction hunch into the lab....

I want one too!
When I hear the phrase "writing hut" or "backyard shed" my imagination practically squeals with delight. A small, intimate space furnished with the essentials. Low impact, high inspiration. This is pr...

This is the second part of two posts in which I share my experience traveling with my two cats from Tbilisi to Holland and the preparations that involved. You can read the first part here. Don't feed the pets the last twelve hours before your trip and don't let them drink water the last four ...

Thanks, Angela! I don't often take pictures, but I recently started again  especially on my trips to the countryside.
My trip to Yerevan was filled with meetings with friends and running errands. I'm usually back in Yerevan once every month or two, so who knows, maybe next time will work out!

I recently posted the first book review in a very long time on my blog. It was nice to write about books again. I might do that more often. ;-)

Digitaal ontwikkelingswerk lijkt sterk op ontwikkelingswerk in digitale communicatie, hier in Nederland. De zeven redenen voor falend IT-beleid in de Derde Wereld vertonen dan ook overeenkomsten met redenen waarom innovaties in communicatie hier in Nederland dikwijls faalden en nog steeds te vaak mislukken. Wat kunnen we daarvan leren?'

Whether you have someone in your life to give books to on Valentine's Day or not, there are lots of interesting books on this list.
