It’s been a while…..

Things have been a bit crazy around our house in the last couple of months. As a result of this we have not been able to travel as much and we certainly were slack in keeping this blog up to date.

But this is about to change, my (Chantal’s ) thesis (MSc) was handed in last week and Christel can share the household chores again, which mean we both have more time. It hasn’t been all hard work and no fun for us, we even managed to squeeze in a 10 day trip to the US, but there was simply no time to blog about this. I will write up one or two blog posts soon, I promise.

I am currently working on some ideas to make this blog more interesting and more professional, but this will take some time.

Anyway, thanks to those who did stick around!
