I’m Lenise, an Australian writer and proofreader I was born and raised in Sydney and I have loved sport for as long as I can remember. I’ve played a ton of team and individual sports, including water polo, gymnastics, basketball, tennis, hockey, competitive swimming, Pilates, athletics and running.
I also love to travel and have lived in a number of countries. When I was a teenager, I took my first European steps as an exchange student to Finland. Since then I have spent most of my adult life living and working in foreign lands – Japan, the UK, Turkey and of course, the Netherlands. I’ve also had the good fortune to travel extensively through Australia, New Zealand, the US, Europe and Asia.
With each adventure, I look for ways to meet new people and learn about the languages and cultures of the country I am in. For me, the best way to do this is through my first love – sport. I have fond memories of the swimming club I joined in Japan, jogging with friends through the streets of Istanbul, water polo training with my team mates at 6am as a teen in Sydney. Here in Eindhoven I love my running group, crossfit, and doing fun events like Strong Viking!
I’m always searching for new sports to try out. I hope to discover as much as I can in my new city and share this information with not only other internationals, but also locals who would like to join a club or participate in a one-off event.
