“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”

Reizen…reizen naar andere steden, landen, maar ook fictieve werelden. Het uitproberen van nieuwe gerechten of iemand compleet zien opgaan in de wereld van cosplay, voor mij is het allemaal een onderdeel van reizen. Ik neem je maar al te graag mee op al deze “journeys” hier op de blog. Ik schrijf regelmatig over nieuwe hotspots en mijn reizen, evenals fotodagboeken van dit alles. Reizen jullie met mij mee?

It’s the end of June already again – phew time is flying by! But that does mean that it’s time for another Cosplayer of the Month. I love exploring the world of cosplay, even though I don’t really cosplay myself. But I wanted to put some people in the spotlight who do an amazing job with it but hardly get the attention they deserve. So every month I will put one cosplayer in the spotlight. Together with the cosplayer I will select my/their favourite cosplay and use that as a base to interview them! Cosplayer of June: CosplayDreams1981.

Laura L. Smith

We keep continuing with February Fiction month! I love seeing two passions coming together, especially when they happen to be my personal passions too. Author Laura L. Smith did exactly that with “The Status Updates Series” books. They feature four roommates who go through the good and bad together. All books feature a get-a-way to a European city, and that is where the travelling comes in. I wanted to dig a little deeper and asked Laura for an interview, which I’m glad she agreed on!

Jennifer Murgia 4

Jennifer Murgia is an author who writes YA fiction and I’ve been in love with her books for quite a while. I devoured Between These Lines and Forest of Whispers. You can imagine that I was more than a little excited when I found out that Forest of Whispers was getting a sequel: Castle of Sighs. For the occasion of it’s release I asked Jennifer if she wanted to do an interview about her research processes. The thing is that both FoW and CoS are set in the real world (17th century Germany). And I was more than a little curious to find out how she combined the real world with a work of fiction.
