Collecting as many beautiful memories as possible!
I'm the flying Dutchgirl that loves wine and poetry. Besides that I'm very fond of languages, cooking, traveling and colour matching.
I left Amsterdam for Italy ten years ago and I just ended up staying. Since a couple of years I'm dividing my time between Bologna and Palermo and I move so often I'm not able to host.
I'm up for coffee and drinks though!

I have a talent for foreign languages, colour matching and running into strange adventures. Besides that I'm quite a decent cook (fish!) and I can suggest some quirky little bar in practically every Italian town!
