“I’m crazy about falafel. I’ll eat it in any possible way, on a sandwich, in a salad or just solely. I also love Italian food, like vegetable lasagne or a vegetable pizza crust that you can top yourself. Recently I started to develop an interest in Asian cuisine as well. I prepared a noodle dish the other day that –for some reason- worked out surprisingly well. Tapas are also on my list, I love the fact that you can choose more than one dish. Brilliant. As you may have noticed, I’m pretty indesicive: it is known to be typical for a Libra, so I often just use that as an excuse when I can’t choose.”
"I actually know very little about art, so I don't have a favourite artist. In my home I have a beautiful painting of a rose that I got from my mother, but I don't know who the painter is. It would be nice to know a bit more about art, so I recently bought a museum card and planning on visiting museums more often. Maybe I'll have a favourite artist soon. "
"I like to go to Cafe Buhrs at the Van der Helstplein and I also enjoy going to Papeneiland. An other favourite is De Bloemist at the Ceintuurbaan, just around the corner; very tempting when I'm in a lazy mood and my fridge is empty. "
"Burning Man is on my wishlist, a mythical festival in the desert of the American state Nevada. An event based on the gift economy, where money doesn't exist, only creativity and generosity."
"My favorite way to relax is Floating at KoanFloat. This is a place where you can float on water in a tank. The water is warm and very salty, like the dead sea. Next to this, I like to do hand embroidery. "
"Hmm tricky, I am a huge fan of the scent Courage des Bois. Definitely this time of the year, when it’s cold outside. It's a wonderful warm fragrance for in the shower. The scent Lemon Notes is also fantastic, this scent brings me back to my summertime vacation in Israel, when I had to quickly eat my lemon ice cream before it melted."
