It has been a long while since I wrote a blog, but I am back and I am currently in Senegal! Earlier this year, I talked about the trip I took to Fuerteventura and shortly after, I actually visited Madeira too. In this blog I want to share a whole lot about my latest trip to Senegal, but mostly: what I have done so far. The last time I went to Senegal was in 2019, so it was about time I come back. Not only to see family and (new) friends, but also for my creative spirit. During the pandemic, I have been a lot more creative and been inspired by so many creatives in the Netherlands. Therefore, this trip to Senegal is supposed to be a source of inspiration, connection and some sort of homecoming. Before we get into what I have done so far, I created this mini-travel guide! There are many more pictures of what I have done so far here in Dakar. You can also download the mini-travel guide at the end of this blog. Let’s go!(more…)

IDFA 2021 x Munganyende: Breakfast in Kisumu at OSCAM
In my last blog of 2021, I want to talk about IDFA 2021! Previously, I shared all about Rome and Venice and it was amazing to travel again! As some of you may know, I moderated for the first time this past October. If you would have told me that I would one day moderate an event in the Netherlands, I would have never believed you! Especially the program we did for IDFA with the screening of Breakfast in Kisumu at OSCAM. For real, even thinking back, it was just all surreal. All my friends were there to support me, it went very well and it gave me a whole different type of confidence I didn’t know I needed. Let’s talk all about IDFA 2021, Breakfast in Kisumu and much more!(more…)

Venice, Italy: Visiting for the first time
In my last blog, I shared my adventures in Austria and today I will talk about traveling to Venice! Additionally, 5 Things You Need To Consider When Traveling During A Pandemic is still relevant. So, I went to Venice and I had such a beautiful time which I want to share. As some may know, I actually lived in Italy when I was a child.
