Writing took the limelight in the last two years.
Not of flowing poetry and captivating prose but of precise instructions and comprehensive descriptions.
Because I was already caught up with my role as a technical writer, all personal writing came to a halt, with only the occasional journal entries interrupting my otherwise writing-free leisure time.
Recently, I have decided to get back to writing because:
- It's a great exercise for exploring and expressing your thoughts.
- I have learned a thing or two from my profession and I would like to apply those in my personal writing.
- It's the best way to share stories.
A recap from 2016 onwards
Little did I know that freelancing paved the way to discovering a new career. Again, all of this in hindsight.
In the midst of the organized chaos of scooters and neon signs, I found a career I deeply care about, lifelong friends, and a wonderful man.
In 2018, I moved to Amsterdam, leaving the land of hot bowls of pho and spring rolls for bitterballens (Dutch meatballs) and stroopwafels.
These days I am still adjusting, still marveling, and still finding it amusing to compare life here with how things are in Southeast Asia.
Changes coming up!
|Frozen sea in Finland|
It's either I have changed immensely in the last two years or age has finally crept up on me, but I no longer feel like a person capable of sharing travel stories.
I have taken on different interests and while I hold traveling dear, it was not and will never be my end goal.
Because I am now in a different headspace, this space will take a different form.
From today, you'll find changes in this space.
- There will be no more ads and promotions.
- This space will focus on storytelling and sharing ideas. Possibly travel-related, most likely not.
