From the moment I could walk I tried to go as far as I could, I like travelling for the sake of the travelling. After studying history at university I became a musician, busking in the streets ( still, after some 30 years) and playing in clubs, theaters and all different venues. On my travels I write lots of songs, in Dutch language. Name of my band is the Amazing Stroopwafels. When the band is not playing I sneak out for another short trip, sometimes accompanied by Manon and/ or our 3 children. Looking at maps makes me curious, always wondering what it looks like in reality. I hardly take pictures, it's all in the head! It's nice that so many people on this site all have their own goals. There is something special in every country I visit, and of course, I wish you all happy travels!
