  • Description

    Hello everyone,

    I am almost 66 years old and retired five years ago.
    I worked for years as an oncology nurse at a bone marrow transplant center and in the last few years before my retirement at an information center for cancer patients.
    It is not given to everyone to stay healthy. Fortunately I am.
    And I still have a lot of energy.
    Covid has affected me quite a bit last year and even now I wonder (despite being fully vaccinated) what wisdom is to travel abroad again and resume my volunteer work.
    I try to fly less and do everything by public transport if possible. I also decided to eat only plant-based.
    Last year I was at home in Amsterdam, in my own environment. And that was fine, given the circumstances.
    But now, I would like to travel again and meet new people.
    Three years ago I took care of dogs, cats, chickens, pigs and peacocks in Spain for a few months.
    Two years ago I spend two months in Mexico, to take care of 40 cats.
    And now? I'm open to much more!!!
