My heart jumps with joy whenever I can spend some time outside, in nature. Hiking through the mountains, working outside on the fields, horseback riding through the forest: there is so much to see and to do outside.
I'm a biology teacher at the university of Wageningen (the Netherlands).
This is a wonderful job and I feel very lucky that it requires my presence only for several months of the year. Whenever I am 'out of a job' I can travel and meet new people and do volunteer work.
For a few years now, I am also a tour leader and translator for a few Dutch travel agencies. I'm very fond of these jobs, especially the one that allows me to cycle through the Netherlands, and show our country to foreigners.
Some key words about me / my lifestyle:
NATURE, travelling, animals, horseback riding

DANCING, zumba, ballroom, salsa
YOGA, cycling, swimming
TOUR GUIDE, family tour leader (tours with adults and kids)
