About Me


Going places, meeting people


I am 33 years old and from Amsterdam. I gave up my job last June and am traveling around in South America until June 2010 (or longer… never know). Giving up my job and go traveling again is something I always knew I would do. Scary to leave all your securities behind (I mean the mortgage of my apartment still needs to be paid), but so far there hasn’t been a day that I have regretted doing it.
Obviously I love traveling. I got hooked about 15 years ago and took every chance I had to go and see places. I love all the beautiful things that I have seen so far, but it are the little (and unexpected) things that I enjoy and will remember most.
I am pretty relaxed most of the time and think most things can be solved with humor.
I am passionate about dancing. I do classical ballet back home, but I also like to go clubbing, R&B and even sing along with ABBA if I am drunk enough. Other things I like to do are wondering around in (unknown) cities, go out for a drink (or two) and relax and watch the world go by from any square in the world.
