About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Barcelona for Mumford and Sons on the 20th of March!

ABOUT ME

Right now I'm living in Amsterdam. I'm here for 10 months as an EVS volunteer, and later- who knows. I'm living with other 8 volunteers as a family (or rather trying to be one) and working in 4 different places during the week. I work in a homeless shelter for European people, hospice, Day centre for homeless people and on Sundays we are having a church service in a red light for homeless people or those dealing with addictions. Anyhow, I meet the craziest people here... And fall in love with them. That's just the long story short!

PHILOSOPHY

"I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions." Dorothy Day
