About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Dreaming and then seeing if something materializes :)

ABOUT ME

I aim for a relaxed and happy simple lifestyle, always giving back more then we recieve. Connected with nature, surrounded by friends and all the time in the world to express yourself. Bonobo society :D

I've got a lot of experience with voluntary work through WWOOF and HelpX and am traveling now and visiting friends and eco-projects :)

Also good to know: I am very much a fan of dancing!!

PHILOSOPHY

Sit, watch, wait, listen, feel, hear, stop thinking, smile!

Follow your instinct and leave this earth in a better state as you found it.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Life is the most amazing thing I have seen till now :) It is everwhere around us, just open your eyes!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

Can tell you lot's about sustainable living, farming, being happy, astrology, biorhythms, recycling and where to go and what to see while travelling Europe, explain how I live my life now, tapping in to the forces of what seems coincidence, and why I like my life so much now I started doing this; Teach you to dance, cook, build, Tai Chi (like Yoga but different) farm on your balcony, ride a bike, enjoy life and do what you always wanted to.. Renovate your bathroom, repair your couch or change your life.

And I would like to learn to juggle, breakdance, pop, play guitar, percussion and piano, weird ways to farm and how to build your own sauna :)
