We couldn't travel abroad and had to cancel most of our travel plans and future collaborations. We actually didn't have a home for the winter, as we usually travel during those months. We did continue to explore our home country the Netherlands, but it wasn't the same, as restaurants and museums were closed most of the time. It was difficult to keep us inspired to write about our past travels and about our trips in the Netherlands, while struggling with that.
One of the upsides from the pandemic was how it coincided with Maartje's pregnancy and the birth of our baby girl. Maartje got very ill and wasn't able to travel, but because of the pandemic and lockdown our travel plans were already canceled and we didn't miss out on anything. Our timing couldn't have been better.
