This week I kick off with future perspectives on how the bicycle can change the city at the first Bicycle Architecture Biennale in Amsterdam. Also, I went to the opening of the exhibition ‘The female perspective’ in the always spectacular Castrum Peregrini, the former house of the famous artist Gisèle van Waterschoot van der Gracht. The last part of my week I spent in the always lovely Barcelona, where I saw a special photo exhibition of Susan Meiselas and got to see the just opened Casa Vincens, one of the first works of Barcelona’s beloved architect Gaudí.

As a journalist, it’s important for me to stay curious about new forms of storytelling. Vlogs (videoblogs) are a fascinating medium, because they challenge me to tell my story in more ways than just sharing information. My vlog gives me the opportunity to enrich my stories with a personal touch, and present them in the most concrete and visually attractive way possible. In my weekly vlogs I take you with me to interviews, backstage at the John Adams Institute and Stadsleven and to all the events I visit and moderate. I’m learning as I go!
