In addition to my work as a doctor I do (too little) sports (football and squash) and sometimes enjoy some hard work in the garden.
For years I have also spent my evenings immersed in studying, updating my knowledge about medicine and reading extensively about the beautiful country where I live, in the hope to understand more of its varied culture and background. On this website I will regularly publish information about Spain. I also have a medical column in the local dutch magazine, Kosta.
