Roll up, roll up!

Welcome to the carnival!

Enjoy the sweet smells of the cotton candy and candy apples. Listen to the calliope music as you wander among the many stalls, to the screams of children enjoying the various rides. It’s all been designed to take your money, but you already know that. What you are not aware of, however, are the strange goings-on of the carnival world after dark. Do the carnies want more than your money? Does the fortune teller know more than she tells you? Are some of the games more dangerous than others?

My Trip To Kenya

A lot of followers were very curious what I've been doing in Kenya and I'd love to tell you all about it, in this blogpost!

I was there for 10 days with a project called Teachers4Teachers. With around 40 Dutch teachers, we travel to Kenya. It's all about meeting and connecting with Kenyan teachers and to inspire them by giving workshops. The workshops are about varied teaching methods and active learning.
