“THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS BAD WEATHER, ONLY BAD CLOTHING”
I was born in Sudan and spent my early childhood there. My Dutch father was stationed there and my Greek mother was living with her parents in a game park when they met. Most of my early childhood was spent with my grandparents and wild animals, while my parents were travelling through Africa. We lived pretty remote and my best friend was a monkey. I sometimes joined my grandfather when he was out protecting the animals from poachers. He transferred his love for animals to me and I cannot imagine my life without animals around me.
