About myself

I was born in 1951 in Heerlen,  South Limburg, the Netherlands.

I’ve  been interested in animals, nature, and the environment for my whole life and always loved physical activities and outdoor sports.

When I was young I considered studying the environment, but ultimately I chose to become  a family doctor in a small Limburg village.

I married Sonja and had 4 children who are now grown. As I am now nearing retirement, my plan is to walk from the extreme south of Europe, in Spain, to the extreme north, Cape North in Norway, together with my dog Joep and my pack pony Luka
