Rick Leeuwestein was born in 1985 in Besançon and lives in Hoorn, the Netherlands. He studied Tourism and completed a long internship in Andalusia in 2005. During this period, he developed a great love for this unique southern Spanish region. Somewhere he was seized by a mysterious force – the soul of Al-Andalus – in this almost North-African part of Europe. Rick has a great interest in history and culture. Morocco has become a second home.
