Hello there! I am ocean and sea enthusiast. Although I have not much experience with sailing a boat myself, I have been on board sailing yachts cruising the Mediterranen and Caribbean Sea. In my early 20s I worked as a stewardess on board charter yachts, with most of my duties inside I wasn’t part of much of the sailing itself. That is why I would like to be on board of sailing boats again and this time being part of the sailing crew! Nevertheless, I really enjoy doing inside work as cooking and cleaning as well. In the Amsterdam, where I’m from, I work as a Dutch SLA teacher (because I studied Dutch language and culture) and I have worked with a boat cruising company for 5 years. In my free time I love spending time with my nieces and have been taking care of them (and other children) from ages 0 to 10. I enjoy being outside, walking in nature and the beach, but I also like city stuff like going to the bar or dancing. At the moment I travel through Spain and work remote.
