Hi <<First Name>>

After a lovely weekend in London with friends, where we mostly ate around the city and visited restaurants such as Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen' (photo) and Indian-Food Temple 'Dishoom' (photo) in Shoreditch, the rest of the week continued with a lot of fun!

Our friends over at Traverse organised two events this week, one of which was a small gathering of bloggers talking about the future of blogging conferences and networking events (exciting things may happen this year, keep an eye out on the Traverse website!).

The other event was held at the Herrick Gallery in Mayfair, where the mobile photos of 50 bloggers where exhibited as part of the #ThreeGallery campaign with Samsung and Three. It was such a great event and I loved how we all got to be creative together! The photo that I send in was this one (but then in black-and-white, as you can see below). What do you think?

This weekend, we're having a BBQ with colleagues of Nick's work and a nice brunch with blogger friends and almost-neighbours here in London, Roma and Russel of Always fun to catch up and have a laugh with these crazy Ozzies!

That's it for now, we hope you have a lovely weekend as well, and talk to you again next week, where HOPEFULLY, we're in the Netherlands. Ryanair pilots have decided that they might go on strike, so keep your fingers crossed for us that won't happen, so we get to spend some time with our families... 

Take care,
Nienke & Nick
