  • Quelque chose à dire.

    Hi, I'm George!

    I'm mostly interested in writing snail mail (paper mail). I'd like to write in English, German and Spanish. At the moment I'm learning Russian. In the future I'd like to learn a Scandinavian language, some Polish and Japanese.

    I would like to know people from around the world. In the past years I've met some international friends in real life and I want to continue doing this. Nowadays it's just a little harder as I'm working full time.

    Hope you'll write me!

    - Limburg and how it is different/the same as the rest of the Netherlands
    - K'nex or other construction toys
    - Roller coasters & amusement parks
    - Vulfpeck, funk and basslines in music
    - World views (economic, political, cultural, environmental)
    - Technics, mechanisms & machines
    - Cats, one of the most sophisticated pets
    But other topics are welcome as well, especially if it's something you're passionate about

  • Mes plus grandes fiertés

    On the first public opening day of the longest cable way in the world in Mérida, I've been alone with a penpal and the cabin-operator to the top of pico Bolívar at 5100 meters - without any other tourists around.
    It was dead quiet.
