Let's see... I simply love throwing myself into new cultures. You only live once (that I know of) so take the oppurtunity to see and do everything possible. I don't have much in the way of travel mottos. I would love to spend 6 months per country around the globe but the budget says otherwise (as does my better half). The only places I would avoid would be some of the middle eastern countries at the moment. I am comfortable in french and english is my native language. My heritage is dutch, and I am staying in maastricht NL while adding dutch to my languages and trying to learn the culture. I am often in switzerland which is the birthplace of my sweetie and a place that I have adopted as my home country. I simply love europe (well most of what I have seen at least). I believe that there are many positives and negatives to any area and no one place is a true utopia, but that's not going to stop me from searching. I may ask alot of questions, but I also freely give answers to the best of my ability.
