However, this adventure has now come to an end. I am very glad that I could do this with a fantastic special on the north of the Netherlands this issue (from page 36). While it is not as popular as the major cities such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam, I cannot recommend it enough to visitors because Groningen (my home town) is well worth a visit. And as the country is so small, it is only a two-hour drive from Schiphol anyway. Before I leave, I just wanted to say thank you to Julie Lindén. Dedicated contributor to all of Scan Group’s publications, she was the one to get me on board all those months ago. Apart from her, I have formed many professional connections and even close friendships with the people I have met during my time here. For that I am forever grateful, you know who you are. Finally, I just wanted to wish good luck to my successor. There is still such much in the Benelux that is left to be uncovered, and I hope the magazine will continue to present to you the best places to visit, most stunning sights to see and exciting things to do. So let this magazine inspire you, at is has done to me, to explore this magnificent area on the planet to the max.

A year and a half ago I started a crazy adventure, I became the editor of Discover Benelux. While doing this work, I have learned more about Luxembourg, Belgium and also my own country, the Netherlands, as never before. It has even made me become one of those annoying people, who cannot stop talking about their work in the pub, and all the fascinating things going on in the Benelux region.
Promoting Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg.
