About me

Last year (2017) I moved to the coast, Ostend.

Because of health reasons I didn't travel for a long long time. Until I realised my health was much better in other climates and I didn't have to worry about cooking.
So İ started to travel at an older age.

I am also interested in houseswitch

My interests


Looking for them while I was travelling and learning languages. Not to be goot at it but because I love to explore a culture through their sounds and words.
On my way I doodled a lot. Learning the Arabic script only adds to that :-)


Right now I am reading 'Forty rules of love' from the Turkish writer Elif Şafak.


Mmmm. To relax kalimba. To dance (indian) oriental. Nostalgic. And whatever mix you tube chooses for me.


La double vie de Veronique, La meglio Giuventu, La belle verte, ...I seem only to remember the old ones... :)

I Live With:

I live in a small belle epoque building on the first floor. I have three neighbours. Sous-sol, Main floor and second floor. It is a terraced house and thin walls. So it requires a quiet attitude.

I can offer my guests:

My sofa is actually a bed with two matrasses.

I can offer my hosts:

Privacy is limited, the large middle door can be closed, but you need to go through that or my bedroom to go to the bathroom.

Public transport:

From the train there is a bus 6 or you can take the coast metro and get off at the swimmingpool/library/italian galleries.
From the airport you also need to take bus 6.
Ask for 'Petit-Paris.

House Rules:
No smoking, No drugs.

Due to asthma smoking is only allowed outside.
