In the month of April, Netflix will air a new series named ‘Lost in Space’. Maybe this series will become my new series to watch after I have finished ‘The Vampire Diaries | Season 7′ or ‘The Queen | Season Two’.
‘Lost in Space’
The first season of this series will consist of 10 episodes of each an hour length. According to IMDb not the average 44 minutes. I am wondering if these series will be distinctive enough of ‘Star Trek – Discovery | Season One’ so I can watch both series for some variety and that I will not mix up the storylines. The genre is science-fiction and it is a remake of a 1960s science fiction series about a family that has accidentally survive in this universe. The ten episodes will be online at once on April 13th, a friday so you could binge-watch if you like it.
The family ‘Robinson’ who it is all about, will be played by Toby Stephens, Molly Parker, Mina Sundwall, Taylor Russell and Max Jenkins.

Halfway March it is definitely time for an update about the previous month!
February was a month I felt more at ease with a rhythm of early mornings, a day at the internship and coming home when the evening started. During this month I got a nice result back of the semester project.
For the half of February were the Olympic Winter Games 2018, held in PyeongChang, South Korea. I have only seen a few games of the different sports because of the time difference and I have a busy schedule with working at a company as an internship and following classes meanwhile as well. So a lot of study. The next couple of months, until the end of June, will not be much different with the study time, effort and goals to achieve. Besides studying I love to travel now and then, going to a talk or experience something new. Go to events with friends and family and so on and so on…and blog about it!
So further on I have been to a tech talk about Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Smart Mobility that was held in the Deloitte Tower in Rotterdam. An incredible view from Rotterdam to Hoek van Holland, Delft, The Hague, Zoetermeer and Gouda. The Tech talk
Do you recognise the building in these two photos? Some buildings are on both photo’s. One photo is taken from south to north and one is taken from north to south.
The weather in The Netherlands has also been quite changing. From sunny short days to cold rainy days and even now and then some snow or a couple of days freezing. Brrrr not used to it the last couple of years. The lowest temperature was on the last day of the month with -10,5 ℃ in the little place called Woensdrecht.
Today I share with you a YouTube video of a beautiful piano cover. The song ‘Perfect’, originally sung by Ed Sheeran but in this cover is only one instrument: the grande piano. This is performed by John Schmidt, an incredible piano player. A video and especially music says and lets you feel more than a thousand words can describe.
A personal touch: This song lets me release any stress, it gives me a peaceful happy mind. That is why I choose to share this favorite song – by Ed Sheeran – and cover – by The Piano Guys – with you.
A lovely quote of The Piano Guys:
“The Piano Guys write, perform, and record music to make a positive impact in the lives of people all over the world through music videos.”

What do you get when you mix Ed Sheeran’s beautiful love song “Perfect” with the cinematography of “La La Land?” You get a Piano Guys video and cover!
“Perfect” is one of our absolute favorite Ed Sheeran songs, and we think it’ll become one of yours too! As Jon says “The 6/8 meter lent itself very well to a solo piano version and the inspiration was abundant.”

Which film are you looking forward to, to see in theatres this year?
Today is the 1st of March 2018 and this means that this month is my blog anniversary month!
Three years ago, back in 2015, I started with this more structural blogging. The history of my blogging experience is written in the blog series named: ‘The Blogging Experience’ that consists of five blog posts, with an explanation about what I am using now and last but not least some tips on blogging.
Essay | Leprosy in the 12th and 21st century | Conclusion
This is the last blog post of a series about leprosy. For a course, at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, named ‘History of Health Care’ I wrote this essay as part of a final assignment. The subject, general knowledge and impact of leprosy is underestimated. I have learned a lot about it by writing this essay.
Happy New Year 2018!
A very recent blog post, just two months old. My New Year’s wishes to you all, accompanied by a compilation video of the fireworks I have seen that night. Just shot with my iPhone 7 and edited with Quick.
The past year I have been combining the study work load and the blog feeling to write, a bit better than last year. Especially writing about my holiday in Edinburgh is a part I am really proud of because I am happy I could share through this way my holiday experience and provide you with some recommendations or just the way how I managed it all. And for me personally, writing it all as an overview, was also my guideline when I was telling people about my travel and experiences. I am a student on a student budget and that’s the fun challenge. How to get the best out of it with enjoying the most out of it.
I am looking forward to write even more blog posts about what I am experiencing, visiting, travel to, plan to do and so on… So excited! This month will also be a bit of a recap of the past year. A few blog posts that are drafts will be finished and they will be more in-depth of my big and smaller travels.
