About Me

Trekking the Altai-mountains; MongoliŽ

Since 1979, when I worked for about 7 months in Guinea (Conakry); I got fascinated in foreign countries.
Unfortunately, due to the instable political situation in 1980 Ė it wasnít possible to start working for the Suriname-governement.
So I started working for the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality and stayed there until now.
The Ministry is committed to cooperation in finding solutions that satisfy the demands of local authorities and citizens, and which also take an area's specific features into account. When developing open spaces for recreation, nature, water management and agriculture, we translate and implement abstract policy into tangible projects.
To achieve this, we acquire land, redevelop it and then transfer it to administrative authorities and individual farmers.

In the early 1990ís, during my holidays, I started visiting countries, outside Europe.
The first 15 years I mainly was interested in meeting people and seeing the cultural highlights.
See my travelpages for an overview.

Since 2009 my focus changed into the world off nature.
The results can be found on this website.
