My name is Judith, or Judy to my American friends.
My travels all over the world have left me with a large number of "old" friends that
I haven't seen in years, sometimes even decades. Are you one of them? Or maybe someone
not separated from me by thousands of kilometres, but that I still
don't get to see as often as I should? If so, this page should give you an idea of
what I've been up to. Don't hesitate to
The links on the right may be interesting for some of you.
What have I been up to? After my trek from Singapore, via Austria to Brazil, with a stop
in the Netherlands, I landed in Tennessee in my later teenage years. But I guess
I was in search of my roots, and I returned to the Netherlands (my place of birth),
for my studies.
Those roots must have found the ground pretty good, because that's where I still am. I live
with my boyfriend, Eric. We met at the university, where we both studied physics.
I started working
for Philips Electronics after my studies, doing development work in "packaging and assembly"
techniques, for the electronics industry.
I still love travelling, although it's only for a few weeks at a time nowadays. In my opinion,
there's nothing like immersing yourself in a different culture for a while, to learn, and to
be able to view your own culture from a different perspective. Check out descriptions of my
travels, with photographs, linked from my travel page.
Between work, travelling, and spending
time with family and friends, I have a little time left for hobbies, such as making 3D animation
movies (see the one on my Nepal page!), reading novels
and popular science stuff, and fitness.
