Mercatorplein, Berlage, Amsterdamse school, Baarsjes, Jordaan, Kinkerbuurt, Ten Kate markt, Ruigoord, Kennemerduinen

I live in Amsterdam-West on the edge of the Jordaan. After all my wanderings, I decided to choose my new home in this city - mainly because of its international and liberal character. I cycle to the cozy Ten Cate market in the Kinkerbuurt, within 5 minutes in the Vondelpark or on the Leidseplein. A little further lies the Westerpark or the Amsterdamse Bos. I used to live in the Baarsjes near the Mercatorplein, where there are fewer tourists, who now have to stow this city in large numbers.

Between 2009 and 2010 I was living and working in Ghent. I learnt to love this exciting city long before I finally moved there.

it has a stunning, well preserved mediaeval city centre and in the twelfth century this was the biggest city in northern Europe. Now it is the stage for the Gentse Feesten. This place is packed with fine scenery, beautiful people and lots of excitement.
