My Favourite Things About Marieke Nijkamp – Part 2

This year I will have known Marieke for 9 years. I’ve already shared a few of my favourite things about my best friend here, but I couldn’t resit telling you a few more.

  • Marieke has a quest for adventuring, so that makes her the ideal person to be in company of – you never know when you might find an adventure.
Marieke in Ireland, both of us scrambled up very high for that view. Marieke much more gracefully I should add.

  • If I need a book recommendation I ask Marieke because she always knows the perfect book for me and she’s never wrong, not annoying at all 😛
  • The Ideal Theatre Buddy
  • Marieke is always there with tea, liquorice and support for writing questions
  • and because of Marieke I’ve made even more amazing and wonderful new friends.
