About Me

CURRENT MISSION

find my next destination

ABOUT ME

I like to be on the wide open road. I like adventures but also an uncomplicated life. I like fantasy & freedom, to use my imagination; when I work I like to work hard; but in the morning I like to take it easy with a nice coffee. I like to go out, to laugh, have a good beer and to talk about many different things. I like to learn something from everyone I meet. Everyone has some life's wisdom that is unique.

PHILOSOPHY

Be yourself and do the things you feel good doing. If there is something you really want to do, just go for it. Its never a waste of time, even if you fail.
