'Into The Wild' is a movie that has been inspiring me to see as much of this beautiful world as possible in the relative short time we have as humans. The saying "Happiness is only real when shared" cannot be more true and stands for one of my personal characteristics. Currently, I am studying at the Hotel Management School in Maastricht, located in the south of The Netherlands. In 2010 I filled my gap year after high school with 8 months of travelling and working in Australia and 2 months of travelling in New Zealand, an experience that was my first milestone in my individual travels. Describing myself is a hard question, but I do know I feel fortunate and lucky to be living such a rich life. Get the best out of life by sharing stories, experiences and wealth!
Besides being the student that I currently am, music is essential for me to live. I play drums and a little didgeridoo. On the bicycle I listen to Porcupine Tree, Tool, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Red Hot Chili Peppers, but my taste reaches into all kinds of genres. For sports, I have been rowing since I was 11 and during my internship in Shanghai (from 11th of February 2013 to 21st of July 2013) I took lessons in Chen style Kung Fu, generally known as Tai Chi. I love skiing and watersports when my funds allow me to do so. From time to time a good book is needed for my well-being.
