Serious Request 3FM!

I wanted to let people know that there is a huge project every year which is called Serious Request 3FM.

You can find all the information about this project right here. Unfortunately it’s all in Dutch but maybe you can use a website translator! With the help of everyone starting their own little projects and a radio station (Radio station 3FM! started this project)

Now on with what I really wanted to tell

My niece studies at the Media College in Amsterdam, they also started a project where they have to run their own radio station and all that comes with it. Now she asked me if I wanted to do 2-3 songs. I said yes not knowing what it actually meant… performing on stage (luckily that has changed to the studio lol) I have a huge fear for stages. I don’t know why but my heart is almost beating out of my chest. I have never sang outside of my bedroom and shower before. This will be the first time that I’m going to sing and play guitar outside of my room (and full songs too! lol).

Anyway you can read here who you are helping if you’re going to support/donate to this project! everyone in the whole country has different ideas about raising money for this project. Every bit helps! last year Serious Request raised an incredible amount of almost 9 million euro! This year the money will go the the research and medicines for Lung inflammations. Every year almost a million people die because of this and we can help. This is also the number 1 death cause for children under the age of 5, it’s the most deadly infection a child can have.

I’ll be singing tomorrow morning (dec. 20 European time 10.30am) and you can watch the live stream here.

Help this project and help the world! I thank you kindly! you can donate here until this thursday 5pm.

*this is a project started by students at the Media College Amsterdam all the money they raise will be donated to Serious Request 3FM!

Have a wonderful week and cheers to a healthy life.

Ice cold hometown (1 min read)

ICE COLD HOMETOWN

A photo I made this morning in my ice cold hometown.

The temperature has been going up and down in the last few weeks with sometimes a difference of more than 10 degrees celsius. Last night it was -4 and so the small rivers/ditches have a thin layer of ice. Of course at 8am in the morning this looks incredible, everything is covered in a white layer of cold air and ice.

On my way to work

I myself am not a person that loves the cold. I get depressed easily, don’t feel like doing anything beside drinking tea with milk or hot chocolate. I’m more a sun kind off guy. Sun gives me energy and makes me want to do so much activities. I’ve also noticed that the lifestyle is completely different from each other. I guess you could say that people do more when the sun shines. I notice in my hometown (and probably a lot more places) that people here live inside their homes. Always between 4 walls, we live our lives as individuals mostly.

When it’s summer everyone is happy, going outside, never sitting inside their houses, socialising on streets, parks etc. it feels like life is so much more when the sun is out, don’t you agree?

*Tell me, are you a winter or a summer person? do you think that the weather all throughout the world is changing? do you see difference in temperature compared to years ago?

It’s chilly billy here and I need to pour myself another cup of tea, Cheers!

Roque Nublo in Gran Canaria.

I made a page few weeks ago (here) about my holiday to Gran Canaria. I totally forgot that I shot some videos too! I didn’t shoot as much as on my other holidays but just a few clips. I’ve put them together now as you can see below. It’s amazing to stand at the same level as the clouds (and cold).

Check out other holiday videos here. This is the page where I put my videos on 🙂
