To make sure that living once is enough.
I'm a Dutch American born in Florida and raised in North Carolina.
I used to have some lengthy description of myself written here. Every year I would add on to a list of places I had visited and things I had done there. If there is one thing I've learned, the places you go are just the bonus to the people you meet. Without new friends, life and traveling would only be a geography lesson. That's why I'm on this site.

Teach, Learn, Share
I want to learn cultures. I want to know how YOU look at the world. I want to learn your language. I want to know how you grew up as compared to how I did, to learn from each other and broaden the mind.
