Fulfilling the mission of my life: explore the whole world and all it's countries. Experience as many crazy, fun things as possible. Meet people with different backgrounds and different ideas from all over.
I'm a fun and open minded person. Love to laugh, talk, travel and meet new people. I travelled a lot in my life, from Latin America, Europe, US to Asia. But I especially love travelling in Africa. Lived in Kenya and Ethiopia for a while, worked mostly for the Netherlands government. I also have my own foundation that helps support orphans in Kenya. I obviously spend a lot of time fundraising so we can pay for their education. I'm also a real workaholic, definitely spend most of my time at my office (in The Hague and at Schiphol Airport).
So many :) Love to sport (surfing, sailing, field hockey, watch football), love to think and discuss about world problems, politics, development. I really enjoy travelling (like I said especially travelling within Africa), exploring the world and experience as many adventures as possible.
- rock climbing
- field hockey
Music, Movies, and Books
Yes, yes, yes :-) Love it all! Like to read books of Paulo Coelho. I also like to read books that discuss different political issues, development matters, historical events.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Backpacking through Mexico, Guatamala and Belize, participating in a project for the protection of sea turtles, climbing a vulcano, accidently touching the tail of a lion during a safari in Kenya (didn't realize I was that close :)), living in Ethiopia for a year combining the diplomatic world with experiencing a wonderful culture, eating injera and dancing the night away :)
