About Me

To bring the amazing Bach to people and I like to make happy people even móre happy joining my bike-tours in the countryside and city center.

ABOUT ME: just read some references.
sincere, honest, open, caring, multiple interests and one passion.
I feel comfortable with people of all ages and I prefer surfers who like to bike in the awesome countryside júst outside Amsterdam; actually I decline requests of people who cannot bike. No need to rent one.
1 night requests I usually decline.

be nice and honest and find yourself a passion for life.

Music, Movies, and Books

J.S. Bach, the Rock 70-'s and all kind of lovesongs.
Movies: several; must have a good director and actors,
f.i.: Apocalypto (2006), Schindlers List, Into the wild, but also Ice Age 1-4, Scarface, trilogy The Godfather and so on.

Lately I don't watch new movies any more because the level is too low.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Turning point in my life was hearing Glenn Gould playing Bach after which I started studying Bach myself until the present day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll share my Bach-knowledge by performing to my guests

What I Can Share with Hosts

Chats about any subject; cooking any dinner; taking care of things and playing the best Bach music.
