Dear ACCESS readers,
I hope this finds you well and you are enjoying the ‘wind down’ to the end of the year. Doesn’t time just fly? To be honest, I can’t quite believe it’s already my second cycle as editor of ACCESS magazine (an editor of any magazine, in fact) and time for me to present our winter edition: In a new light.
In this edition, we have featured some ‘other aspects’ of the Netherlands – from events to traditions, from culture to places… that and much more besides. Hopefully you’ll find the magazine a good read and may even discover something you didn’t know about the country we call home.
Once again, this publication would not have been possible without the support and dedication of our talented writers (Bianca, Giulia, Katarina, Olivia, Sandra), our designer (Marek) and proof-reader (Nancy). Your time, and effort is much appreciated – ditto for everyone who contributed.
I must also give a shout-out to L.T. for taking on our cover story (intriguing stuff!) and the extra work that was put in. And a mention for my predecessor, Steve, who wrote a couple of articles for us including some exciting news about ESTEC and ESA joining the ACCESS Patron Programme.
When approaching the end of a year, it is often a time for self-reflection and recollection. On a personal note, I will look back on 2022 with a grateful heart. The year has been kind to me and brought many blessings. (That said, I could have done without the extreme temperatures in June, various train strikes and flight cancellations, catching Covid, and deciding to try marmite for the first time 😉 ).
As we prepare for Christmas and the arrival of 2023, I hope you can enjoy quality time with your loved ones and that the holiday season will be a happy and peaceful one for you all.
We hope to have your company again next year for our spring/summer publication when we’ll bring you a special ‘animal themed’ edition of ACCESS magazine .
Until then, take care and… happy reading!
