Biggest Baddest Bucket List

I have visited Times Square, ate pasta in Italy, flew First Class, navigated on Loch Ness, did a hot air balloon ride at the Maasai Mara, climbed the GaldhΓΈpiggen, went to a reggae festival in Jamaica, hugged a wild cheetah in Kenya, and ate grasshoppers in Mexico.

While out of your comfort zone

In 2011 I was working as a guide in Barcelona with bicycle tours (CruisingBarcelona) through the city. That summer I met Annemay van den Heuvel, while she was visiting BCN with her friend. I guided her through town with the tour and we had nice conversations.

One year later I started my studies in the Netherlands and with our class we went to Barcelona for a study-trip – it had to be Barcelona?
Funny thing was, that Annemay also started the same study (in another city) and we met again during this trip.
