I need some shares in Expedia, or some travel agency. I’m serious, I can’t help myself with a good holiday and a girl (me) would love some return on her spending because holidays ain’t cheap. That being said, there are ways to make them more affordable, one of them is traveling in shoulder season, like we did on this trip.
Last week I was privileged to attend the 2016 Powerlist Influencers Dinner hosted by Powerful Media at the V&A museum. The event was in partnership with Lloyds Banking Group and Ernst & Young, with Thompson Reuters as the main sponsor.
The Powerlist is a yearly publication which highlights the top 100 most influential Britons of African and Caribbean Heritage. It also highlights individuals who are considered rising stars in their fields and as such are pegged to themselves feature on the list in the near future. The number one individual on the Powerlist this year was none other than Lord Lieutenant of Greater London, Ken Olisa. The list also recognised the likes of Sir Lenny Henry (Actor and campaigner), Steve McQueen (Film Director), Lewis Hamilton (Three-time Formula 1 World Champion), Adrian Joseph (MD, Enterprise Analytics Services EMEA, Google) and many more successful people.

Now, before I went to Amsterdam I was skeptical.I had heard lots and lots about this city of drugs, alcohol and sex that some call sin city of Europe.However, I have been there and back and I can wholeheartedly report that whilst Amsterdam IS all those things, it is also much more. There is so much culture and history seeping out of every street corner and the people are ridiculously friendly.
