About Me

CURRENT MISSION

settle.eat.love. experience. London

ABOUT ME

I recently moved to Dublin After having lived in the great City of London. So I am practically new to the city myself, let's explore together !

I love summers and the sea...and unfortunately I have a penchant for chocolate! I love to go cycling in the city when it is not raining in Holland (lowlands, yew) and always looking for the best coffee place in town as I am quite picky with good coffee and food! I like to cook together with friends or have a picnic at the beach.

PHILOSOPHY

20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did.Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover
