"WELKOM!" Taffi's Profile

I visit VT so rarely these days that each time I do it feels like a comeback! I have spent some time in Stockholm, Sweden in September, October and November 2007. I haven't done many 'touristy' things, but I'm still going to add a few tips that might be useful....

My travels are now temporarily suspended - trying to finish my PhD!.

PS As a rule I do not reply to mail messages by people who do not appear to be genuine VT members.

Where I am

I live in Aarschot, a small town in the northern half of Belgium.

Where I like to be

My favourite places include the inland Algarve, southern and northern Spain, northern Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Romania.

What I do

I am working on a research project on migration at the University of Leuven.c*

What I like to do

Obviously, travelling is one of my hobbies. I am happiest when i am on the road. Apart from travel I enjoy hiking, bars and cafes, reading, writing, music, and foreign languages.

About my name

"And his little girl-daughter's name was Taffimai Metallumai, and that means, 'Small-person-without-any-manners-who-ought-to-be-spanked'; but I 'm going to call her Taffy. And she was Tegumai Bopsulai's Best Beloved and her own Mummy's Best Beloved, and she was not spanked half as much as was good for her; and they were all three very happy. "

    I just saw your question on the forum for Romania. I'm not a driver but I will ask around. You're coming here for hiking?
