Guide Biography:

I was born in The Netherlands in 1978. At the moment I live in the oldest city of Holland, Nijmegen (founded by the Romans as Noviomagus = New Market 2000 years ago!). Holland is a small and flat country, situated by the North Sea. I love mountains and, because Holland is very flat, I traveled intensively to mountainous countries: still looking for more, though! I’ve traveled through Europe, Australia and Central America, on my own or with a group. I hiked through Australia for half a year after I finished my physical ed degree. Nature and being outdoors is what intrigues me most: the perfect place to reflect. Most to the time you can therefore find me outdoors on my bike. My occupation is working as an outdoor instructor. In the summer I work in different parts of The Netherlands and Europe (biking, survival). In winter I give snowboard and skiing lessons in Austria.
