  • 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 French. 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!

  • J'aime toujours parler de...

    - Healthy and conscious consumption
    - Different beers, cheeses and sweets
    - 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

  • Villes et pays visités

    During the last 7 years I've visited several countries such as Sweden, Germany, Finland and Italy, but also Venezuela, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile (a month each).
    I'd really like to visit Helsinki again, I'd love to live in Mérida, Venezuela.

  • 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.
