I am a young elderly and I have lived in Amsterdam for 25 years. I love this wonderful, free but small metropole with all my heart.
My hobbies are visiting flea markets, design, contemporary art and baking cookies.
I travel a lot, especially to South Africa and capital cities.
I am very hospitable and love to invite family and friends for dinner, to stay over or just to be together. I've got two grown-up sons and 7 grandchildren. Having grandchildren is something amazing and I thoroughly enjoy it.
