May - March: Spain to Sweden: roundtrip Europe
Hi! I am looking for a kind travel partner to drive through Europe with me. For part of it or the whole tour. Exact countries are still unclear, but possibly following ‘gentle climate’, we could start in March in Spain, then France, Netherlands then Scandinavia, perhaps end in Greece, somewhere in May. My goal? Enjoy Europe in all its beauty (cities, villages & nature) whilst interviewing inspiring people (from small hero’s to CEOs) and turn their personal stories into blog posts and ultimately a book (I recently published a book on Japanese young adults). I am a life and business coach and there is no dividing line between what I call work and leisure. So this trip is both work and leisure :-). Would be great if you are a journalist, psychologist, writer, photographer or social media buff (or interested in those topics). Fluent in English and preferably other European languages. Lodging could be a balance between Couchsurfing, hostels, Airbnb, hotels and camping. Want to join me for this great experience? Email me how you see things! Wim

Curious about people. I love to travel and write about those I meet, in their greatness and smallness. Born to be a psychologist, yet decided to study engineering (yes, wondering why, don’t you?). Worked for international companies in Europe and the Middle East in a past life. Now focusing on making people enjoy work. I enjoy my work, which I don't call work.
Speaking 5 languages (English, French, German, Dutch and sometimes Spanish), there is no guarantee that I make sense when I speak. Actually, mostly I don’t, which is why I write a lot. Paper is very forgiving. :-) Meeting colorful, crazy, humble, proud humanity is what I care for. To connect, to laugh more and tickle brain and heart and skin (not always all together). I like reading, writing, hiking, photography, yoga, philosophy, psychology,....

When it comes to HelpX: I love connecting with people, animals and nature. Not really here to find physical work (or any work), but I can help you with other things (this is a quite boring bit :-) ): I could help optimize your organization in such a way it increases the quality of your life and everybody in your sphere of influence. How to grow your business, how to coach your staff, for example. I appreciate values such as mutual respect, trust and open communication. Add to that our innate need for fun and laughter and we can be a great match!
