  • Description

    I used to be a dietitian in an elderly home. I quit this lovely job to travel around slowly.
    Spent 3 years abroad and will explore more of the Pacific this year.
    I love nature and adventure! (Hiking, camping, kayaking, canyoning, swimming, ...).
    In Belgium I had a garden in an open air museum where visitors could see how people used to live 100 years ago. In the garden I grew old traditional vegetables, without pesticides, chemical fertilizers or plastic.
    I can sew and have experience in cooking and industrial kitchenwork.

    HOBBIES: I love hiking, camping and enjoy canyoning (anything near the water, really). I aim to practice sketching /drawing /watercolour every day.
