3 things I’m sticking to in 2017

Can you believe we’re already halfway through the first month of 2017! For me the year 2016 will go down in my books as one of the strangest years yet but thank God I lived to see the end of it. The year where the unthinkable happened in the world of politics and international relations, […]
