Shwmae pawb! My name is Hendrik and I was born in Berlin, Germany. I now live in Essen with my wife. We weren't blessed with kids, but we have two cats.
I don't have any family ties to Wales or the Welsh language, but I've always had a fascination with languages in general, and when my wife and I were planning to spend our summer holiday in Wales (which happend last summer as some of you know), I kind of grew an interest to learn the language, and that interest simply never went away.
I love music, both listening to it and making it. I very much prefer "hand made" guitar-focused music (like blues, rock, folk, etc), and if I can figure out the logistics I'll certainly bring a guitar to bwtcamp. At the very least I'll bring my voice, to join Iestyn, Lynne, Sionned and John in the apparently growing Côr Bŵtcamp
I enjoy museums and castles and the walks associated with getting to and around these places, but as I work in a shop (selling computers) my feet tend to get tired after a while. So give me the occasional bench to sit down for a few minutes to enjoy the view, and I'll be a happy camper.
When we're hitting the pubs, I'm not really picky and I'll drink whatever hits my fancy. I usually like to sample local beers or ciders, but when I am in a non-alcoholic mood I'll simply settle down with a glass of coke.
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you!
