I am a cheerful research scientist who grew up in the Netherlands, studied in the UK and in France, and now works in Germany. I like all kinds of sports from road cycling to a game of speedminton and I love the outdoors. To keep me going during all these activities, I bake all kinds of cakes and biscuits as you can read on my blog (website hidden).
When I travel, I prefer travelling by train, because it gives me plenty of time to read all the books I like to read as well as enjoy the gradual changes in the countryside. I am also keen to try new local foods and have shown up to restaurant before with a post-it written by my host listing the dishes I should eat. I can't say I enjoyed every single one, but I ate them all.
