Everybody loves me. I'm a great guy
Hello! Its good to know you're visiting and I hope you will leave a note or some other sign of your passing as I like to stress the word "community" here. VT is by far and away about the people and I have met some very fun people here. Right now I'm actively looking for new friends from Central and South America, so let me offer a little extra encouragement to introduce yourself if you're from that part of the world. Believe it or not, I've made good friends with people who just happened to introduce themselves on a whim.

Feel free to write me in English, German, Italian, or even Dutch. I love to talk about history, sociology, and politics, and just the world in general, but not with people who have very strong opinions. Also, I like to have those intelligent conversations in private e-mail. And of course food and drink are always some of my favorite topics.
When I travel, I do things in more or less my own way. What I really like to see, is how people live from day to day. One stop I'm sure to make is a visit to a local grocery store. Whenever I visit another country, I also like to watch the news, and of course, visit a little pub in some typical neighborhood.
I look forward to hearing from you.
