About me

Industry Non-Profit
Location Wellington, New Zealand
Introduction For the past decade I have wandered the globe a bit, leaving my homecountry Belgium in 1999 to first study in Australia and the US and to later end up in beautiful New Zealand because of a chance meeting with a lovely Kiwi guy, now my husband. In July 2005 we packed our bags once more to experience the JET-life in Fukuoka, Japan. Those two years flew by and after several months in Europe & China we returned to good old Aotearoa. After nearly three years of living a semi-settled life in the capital Wellington, I'm now off on a six-month journey through East Africa and the Middle East. No idea what to expect but stay tuned for news from the road...
