About Me


find a beautiful spot in the Philippines to live for the next 1 or 2 years


I called my profile "nontraveller" because while I seem to be always on the move I don't feel like a tourist. I don't like going somewhere for a few days or even a week or two, take lots of pictures and claim I have understood where I've been or even had any real experience from it. I prefer to stay a bit longer, live like a local and eventually move on to another interesting and exciting place to live. I also like visiting and inviting friends to the house because that to me does feel like getting a real view of a place and sharing new experiences as well.

Currently, the Philippines have caught my fancy. The Filipinos are just great people and it's close to Japan where I need to go from time to time. The Philippines has taught me so much! Salamat po.


there is so much to discover, you have to be open to accept it
