  • Zeg iets over de wereld!

    Hi, I'm George!

    I'm mostly interested in writing snail mail (paper mail). I'd like to write in English, German and Spanish. At the moment I'm learning Russian (sort of, not very actively)

    I would like to know & visit people from around the world. In the past years I've met some international friends in real life and I would like to continue doing this.

    Continue reading if you want to get to know more about me; hope you'll write me!
    (A friends request is meaningless if you don't introduce yourself)

  • Waar ik het meest trost op ben

    On the first public opening day of the longest cable way in the world in Mérida, I've been alone with a penpal and the cabin-operator to the top of pico Bolívar at 5100 meters - without any other tourists around.
    It was dead quiet.
