Beer Yoga in the Park

What happens when you put two gym rats in the park with beer? Beer yoga. It’s something you never knew you needed until its there and then it completes you. So a bit of background: My dear friend Marta and I used to go… Continue Reading “Beer Yoga in the Park”

Zumba Party!!!

A few years ago I would have laughed so hard at the idea of me attending a zumba party. Not one of those good hearted chuckles either, one full of sneering derision. Zumba is for middle aged women, I want to go to skate… Continue Reading “Zumba Party!!!”

Vossenberg Speelboerderij: Tilburg

De Vossenberg Speelboerderij: Tilburg is an indoor softplay with a great outside play area in Tilburg. Sounds scary to people living in Eindhoven but really it’s only like 30 minutes away from me. I have a real love hate relationship with Vossenberg. First let… Continue Reading “Vossenberg Speelboerderij: Tilburg”
