About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Collecting as many beautiful memories as possible!

ABOUT ME

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!

PHILOSOPHY

Live!
