Hop on board any Eurostar train and you’ll be treated to some top-drawer content to keep you company in the form of Metropolitan. This bi-monthly food, culture and design print publication has a monthly readership of approximately 966,000.
As Metropolitan’s Dutch correspondent, each issue I cover upcoming events, new openings and cultural highlights in Amsterdam and Rotterdam – and often Brussels and Lille, too.
I also have the pleasure of interviewing innovators, artists and designers from across the Netherlands.
Highlights from my Eurostar assignments include:
- Putting Laura Heerema, founder of GiantLeaps – a startup with a tool that quantifies the environmental impact of food – in the innovation spotlight and picking her brains about climate-friendly cuisine
- Interviewing the talented Dutch duo behind Adrian-Gidi creative studio on their creative process and secret spots in the city
- Sourcing style insights from streetwear trend-setter Dennis Ebeli, founder of colourful sock brand Alfredo Gonzales
- Diverting all eyes to Utrecht – for a 36-hour guide to exploring this quaint and quirky city
As the most climate-friendly way to travel around Europe (the Eurostar from London to Paris emits 91% less CO2 than flying) I’m delighted to use my wordsmith skills to get more people to trade flights for train travel.
