Welcome to Puffins and Pies, my website about the British Isles

I love to write about my love for Great Britain, the people, its history and culture. I am Marjolein, 39, I live in Twente in the east of the Netherlands with my husband, son and dog. As long as I can remember I am in love with all things British. I love to travel across the North Sea as often as I can to visit the UK. I have a great love for nature, history, prehistoric, sites and stones (minerals and fossils). That is what I like to write about most of all. And I write about fun facts, holidays and beautiful places to visit. Lots of practical information to help you plan your trip to the UK or to understand get to know the history and culture of this island.

I add blogs and stories on a regular basis, so please follow me. You can do that by clicking on the ‘Follow’ button in the sidebar of the blogposts or by liking me on Facebook. That link is also in the sidebar when you open the blog. All my blogposts will be be translated in English, but as you can understand that’s a lot of work! It will take a while until I have translated all of them, so please be patient 😊

Feel free to respond to my posts, but please keep it nice, non-political and polite. If your reaction is discriminating or aggresive I will remove it.


Love Marjolein
