Greetings from the good ole USA! I’m really excited to be back. As you may have seen from my social media, I’m in the States for multiple reasons, one of which is a Midwest book tour. I’m incredibly honored to share the inspirational stories from my book, Flavors of Life. I actually flew into Chicago from Amsterdam, but travelled back to Michigan for a few days to see my immediate family. My adventures took me back to Chicago, though. Read all about my time in the Windy City – from a book event to a wedding and time with friends (old and new).
This past weekend, I helped organize world traveller, author, and good friend Savannah Grace’s bachelorette party. I was honored to be a part of the celebration as she enjoys her last days of singlehood. Savannah is originally from Vancouver, Canada, but has been living in the Netherlands for the past 7.5 years. Combined with the fact she’s already been to 108 countries, we decided to put together a different type of bachelorette party: a road trip.
Over the course of the weekend, we covered 1120 kilometers (696 miles) and visited all 12 Dutch provinces. Seven women from five different countries piled into one van. Our goal was to travel around the Netherlands and experience typical Dutch things, as well as complete a scavenger hunt and play games together. Read more about our weekend escape!
