Hello everyone, I am 23 years old and I am from Adelaide, South Australia. Currently I am living in The Netherlands in the town of Wageningen which lies in the Gelderland province. I have been here for 4 months and am living with my girlfriend and two other friends from Australia. Its fantastic being a new resident in a foreign country, its gives me the best of both worlds as I am still discovering new things everyday as a tourist but also get to experience everyday life as a Dutch resident. I am in The Netherlands playing Korfball. Its a very small and unknown sport which is why I have come to learn more about it and take some knowledge back home to help improve our competition. I am also a music lover. I enjoy playing guitar and drums and watching live music. In Adelaide I worked at the Entertainment Centre setting up concerts. I recently went to the Download Festival in the UK and camped for 3 days seeing some of my favorite bands. It was an amazing few days and was definitely something I will always remember. My travelling started when I was only young and my parents took my 2 younger brothers and I on a 6 week trip of the USA. We also used to go camping a few times a year in The Flinders Ranges and York Peninsula, South Australia. Since then I have always had a strong desire to see as much of the world as I can. Over the last 5 years I have travelled to the following places and loved every second of it: USA (twice) Thailand Taiwan China Kuala Lumpur New Zealand (twice) All states of Australia England (twice) Scotland Spain France Italy Netherlands (three times) Full profile Leave a Review
