That’s me, my husband, and our son. I am going to start my PhD this year at Wageningen University (with a very prestigious 5 years funding from NWO); while he has completed data collection and ready to write his dissertation at Leiden University. We are very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to do our PhD together in the Netherlands, the best country in the world for child’s well-being!
This blog is to document our journey, the process we’re going through while trying to figure out life as a PhD couple with a toddler in foreign country. Both of us are doing ethnography and (coincidentally) share similar topic of interest. The scope of this blog will not be limited to our study topics. It will also be about our adventure!
If you knew me in person, you would notice that daydreaming is my middle name. The same thing could be expected on this blog: daydream, conversation and musings. My daydreaming consists of non-linear thought processes which sometimes result in quick think pieces (and my absent-mindedness). The conversation that I have would be random, most of the times with other-than-human living species such as articles, books, and reports. In parallel to that, my inner muse can’t resist to reclaim her space to reflect about life in general. Additionally, I’ll post pics of beautiful scenery of the quiet rural area where we’re living + the forest where we’ll do fieldwork next year.
Welcome, hope you enjoy! Looking forward to hear from you!
