ERIK DE RUITER
My name is Erik de Ruiter. I am 32 years old and was born in Zwolle, a beautiful city which is located in the eastern part of The Netherlands. I am living in Quito since January 2018.
When I was living in The Netherlands, I worked eight years as a geography and economics teacher in secondary school. I taught students from 12 until 18 years old. Before working as a teacher, I finished my Master degree in teaching geography and a Master degree in Geocommunication. During this master, I spend four months in Albania for my internship in the Dutch development organization SNV. Albania is a country located in the eastern part of Europe. During those months, I became very interested in getting to know more of other countries and cultures.
The South American continent has attracted my attention for many years. It has a great combination of spectacular nature, historical cities and a very nice and interesting culture. After my studies, I started to learn Spanish and after that I traveled to several South American countries. Ecuador is a very nice and interesting country. It is small compared to other countries in the continent, but it is a very interesting country for tourists.
