Personal life:


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.
