  • Description

    Hi there! My name is Merel and I live in Utrecht, near Amsterdam. This spring I have been doing three months of traveling and volunteering in Portugal, Spain, Georgia, Iran and Turkey and it was amazing :) Currently I'm back at my job at a software company. But I'm already dreaming about leaving the Netherlands again! So new plans are being created every day ;P

    I started a TEFL course, so in some months I hope to have obtained my certificate to teach English. It's my dream to some day buy a little house overlooking the ocean. To work remotely either as a language teacher or as a software developer and at the samen time starting my own business like a small scale touring agency, hostel or yoga/silence retreat.

    Hugs! Merel
