About Me


Travelling now. There is so much to see in this world


A great part of my working life was in education. I retired as a museum director four years ago, being 60. It gave me the opportunity to travel and work abroad. I have had all kind of jobs, scientist, teacher, school director, director of nature reserves, even politician. And I love to work in our garden, acually a small arboretum. I am a book lover, our house is crammed with books.


Everything will be allright at the end

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I started July 2008 and we have hosted a number of Couch Surfers. Always a joy to meet travellers and to exchange interesting stories. I met a number of CS members abroad and have the best memories about their hospitality and the way they helped me to learn more of their cities.


Nature, books, gardening, classical music, and, of course, travelling and other cultures.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

So many amazing things: scuba dived the sea, climbed mountains, fished the Polar Sea, rowed a boat amidst whales, stayed with Tibetan nomads, slept in the Iranian desert and hoping for more.
