Sport has been a main influence in my life. As a youngster I tried judo, table tennis and football before I found my passion in Basketball. When I started to travel I turned ski-ing and diving into professions and kept tennis as a hobby. The decision to go into golf came after my four seasons as sailing flotilla leader on yachts. Yoga, pilates and e.g. darts I did in my profession as Event Coordinator. Did I miss one? Most probably.
The keyword of working for more than 25 years in tourism. Serving my clients, or rather guests, in the best way possible. Nowadays they call that the ‘customer journey experience’. I just try to look at all the tiny details and do that with a smile.
As a result I became more and more social. The young shy Arjan disappeared and became a confident personality among all and everyone.

Although I was in relationships for more than 14 years, I know how to live independently. Doesn’t mean I’m not looking forward to meet the right one!
Lyttos Beach Golf Academy and the GPS interactive city walks on the VoiceMap platform are the main key words. With self discipline and continuation, I still believe in doing the things you like, but also have the trust in exponential growth. Back in the days I had an own restaurant on my name on Crete, while still producing souvenir dvd’s of the scuba diving adventures. After that developing the whole Routaki routes platform and learning how to play golf to get to this position.
In all those seasons my brain never stopped creating things. From mosaics to websites and logos to camper tours. Sometimes I wish it would be a bit less.
or strong personality. I know what I want and I think I know how to get there. Always willing to listen, but never without a good discussion.
I sense everything. Mostly in noise and sound. I love quiet places, which pitifully become rare nowadays.
Once a thought fits in and it feels good, I can go a long way to get it right. I try not to be a perfectionist. Better something good and finished than perfect and unfinished.
