This week I fed my interest in polar exploration by visiting ‘The Discovery’, the ship of Robert Scott, who sailed in it on an unfortunate polar expedition to the Antarctic. I also got a peek into the V&A Dundee, the very first museum for Scottish design and in the studio of the fashion designer Katie Gibson of Gibson & Birkbeck. I talked to Neil Ross of the Highlands and Islands Enterprise about community building in rural Scotland and discovered that Scotland has a lot of windfarms. And yes, we went skinny dipping in our hottub in our cottage garden.

As a journalist, it’s important for me to stay curious about new forms of storytelling. Vlogs (videoblogs) are a fascinating medium, because they challenge me to tell my story in more ways than just sharing information. My vlog gives me the opportunity to enrich my stories with a personal touch, and present them in the most concrete and visually attractive way possible. In my weekly vlogs I take you with me to interviews, backstage at the John Adams Institute and Stadsleven and to all the events I visit and moderate. I’m learning as I go!
