About Me


Enjoying the tastes, flavours, colors of different worlds


I've been traveling all my life. Since I was little my parents took me on all kinds of trips true Europe.
While growing older I got intrested in what's beyond my home country and started to travel to all the for me unknown places in Europe. Also the world beyond Europe attracts me and so I went to China and the United States. That way I lived 6 months in Firenze in Italy, travelled to Croatië, cityhopped to Amsterdam, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, Budapest. And travelled to Latin-America. I've been enjoying and living for the last three years in Brussels. Recently I moved to Debrecen,Hungary for an EVS-exchange and looking forward to discover the richness of Eastern Europe!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching the sun go down on Isla del Sol, surrounded by dark and good company. Hike the table mountain. Enjoy a summers drink at my terrace.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think the best way the learn a language, a culture, history, ... is to immerse yourself in another country. That way I learned Italian from square by living with Italian girls, learned the history of the Berlin wall by exploring Berlin, learned about the Chinese culture by staying there a couple of weeks, learned Spanish while travelling. I spend 4 years studying sociologie, now it's time to SEE all kinds of societies, instead of learning them in books.
