I was born and bred in the Netherlands and go by the nickname peanut. These days I am not sure where home is anymore, as my Irish husband loves a challenge as much as I love a change of scenery… our couch is well travelled too.

Having just moved back to Palo Alto, California, after spending almost two years in China, I miss eating dumplings! You can find me writing about food, languages, creative stuff, travelling and other little adventures.
