I'm a non-smoker who enjoys traveling, photography, cooking, good food & wine, reading, music and good movies (you'll find me at the Rotterdam International Film Festival every year). I do what I can in the interest of sustainability, and will walk or cycle before I grab the car. I've been using my bicycle to commute for as long as I can remember ( but then.... I live in the Netherlands!).
As a guest I am considerate and respectful of others' property, and I'm clean and reliable. I'll leave your place like I found it!
A city trip is equally as fun and exciting as being outdoors hiking or xc skiing, as long as the company is good. I enjoy discovering the places I visit on foot, by bike or by public transportation, and love to meet and learn from the locals. I rarely travel unaccompanied by a small stash of dark chocolate.
Some of the more magical places I've visited are the Bay of Fires in Tasmania; the onsen in the hills outside of Kyoto, Japan; the mountains of Norway on a midsummer night, Cappadocia, Turkey; and Bali. Italy in the summer an Austria in the winter are recurrent destinations for slow food and cross country skiing respectively. Top of my must-see list right now are the pyramids and the aurora borealis.
