Biography of Raoul de Boer

Fear not the white space
Though the editor is slow to flow
In time, the website grows

Raoul de Boer

Hey reader, here you’ll find a short intro of my life. I’m born in 1988 and raised and educated in The Netherlands. My job experience and completed studies can be found in my resume. For the more fun stuff you can read on.

Besides work and study I have been a weary traveler and visited lots of remote places and famous landmarks in the world (40 countries and counting). My favourite destinations of all time are Japan, Colombia and Mexico, which I visited multiple times. All the travelling around the globe resulted in the launch of various travel websites, which ultimately lead to a tiny online travel advice imperium that is ever-expanding. The things triggering me are new technologies, nature (fossils and secluded places), history (Japan and Dutch colonial interests), the news and the developments around The Internet.

I’m very proud of two particular projects namely Tokyo.nl and Colombia.nl, which are both leading websites in their industry. Apart from working 24/7 I’m always ready to do some activities with friends, some sports, play a videogame or check out the latest movies in the cinema.
