About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To share the good things in life. The island where I live helps a lot.

ABOUT ME

61, with an ageless soul that keeps me young, three wonderful children, an ever growing group of friends, no drivers licence, a sailing boat and three bicycles, jazz, african music, ubuntu, interested in non-western cultures, dutch, indian and maroccan food, guinness, skuumkoppe, etc
In summer months, I sail the Wadden Sea. See the schedule on www.rackert.nl. Couchsurfers are welcome to embark, as long as they can appriciate the primitive conditions on my little boat.

PHILOSOPHY

My religion is to be friendly and to share the simple, good things in life.
