Hello airbnb people!
Welcome to my profile. :-) I really love the concept of airbnb and am happy to host so many wonderful people from all over the world. I enjoy making people feel welcome and comfortable in my home. I also try to use airbnb when I travel as much as possible. It's such a great way to experience a city / new place.
I am Dutch, was born and raised in the South of Holland, but have lived, studied and worked abroad, mainly in the US (West and East coast). I work in education, with undergraduate university students as well as adolescents. I speak fluent Dutch, English and Brazilian Portuguese; I understand some Spanish and German.
I love travelling, discovering new, hidden-away places, street art, cooking, hanging out with friends, Latin-American music, photography, reading a book. I recently got a racing bike and love cycling. I lead an active lifestyle - working, cycling, taking Zumba and Pilates classes and seeing friends. Spring and summer are my favorite seasons, I love the light and warmth ( I live on the wrong continent! ;-)!
I love living in vibrant and quaint Amsterdam and look forward to introducing it to more aibnb guests!
