Friendly guy exploring his families roots at 12-2-2012
Haha I always find it hard to think of a good way to start this. But Ill try to keep it short for you :)
Im 25 and live in the Netherlands. I graduated from University two years ago. I now work as an Technical Recruiter.
I was born in the Netherlands, but my grandfather is Japanese. The thing is, I have never been in Japan! I would love to see where the roots of my family lie and if I could recognice myself in the Japanese way of life. I want to do this via CS because I hope it is a better way to connect to the local people.
Im looking for a place to stay just to explore the town (I am looking for a few places to stay so I can explore most of the city and hear different opinions) I hope you can give me some tips where to go and what to do.
Now for some questions you may have:
Q1. why you will enjoy hosting host me.
I will bring gifts for you (and your roommates :P) Next to that I think Im pretty easy to be around and I am a low-maintenance kind a guy. Love to share my experiences and learn from others. I dont need much, just a place to stay and I hope I can take a shower in the morning :) I respect my host and their rules.
Q2. why I want to surf with you.
I hope you can tell me how the Japanese culture is and about it's inhabitants. Furthermore I am very interested in how its like to grow up in Japan. Haha don't worry, I dont expect you to guide me for hours of answer my questions for hours. I hope you can send me to some places where I can experience the Japanese culture. I hope that tru CS I can really connect with the culture instead of just visiting some hotels..
Q3. What is my dream or goal of my life?
To live without prejudice. To see something without putting it into boxes. To make friends all over the world and learn from their experience.
Im planning to come in at 2 december.
I hope someone has a spare couch for some days...
