Greetings from Belgium, land of waffles and fries.
« on: April 14, 2014, 05:57:25 PM »
Hello everyone.

My name is Felix, I'm 21 and am born and raised in Flanders, Belgium. You may know Belgium from it's beer, waffles or fries, but sadly not from its famous authors.
Where I live, there aren't so many people interested in Fantasy (luckely I have some very close friends who read all the same books as me) so it's not that easy to learn more about.

Thank God for the internet. After browsing some fora and looking around on Reddit & Twitter, I finally arrived here and it looks like an active place with lots of nice people and original content. I hope to learn a lot here and improve my own writing/drawing skills.


So what do you need to know about me:
 - I'm a 21 year old member of the male gender.
 - I currently attend college to become a teacher in English and PE
 - I've been reading Fantasy ever since my grandpa gave me a copy of Lord of the Rings when I was 8 (It's still my most priced possesion.)
 - My main hobby in the Fantasy section is drawing maps and coming up with magic systems, but for the first time ever I started writing my own series (in Dutch).
 - Other hobbies are skateboarding, hockey, swimming, gaming and reading
 - My favorite authors are Robert Jordan and J.R.R. Tolkien.
 - I have read the following books/series: Silmarillion, Children of Hurin, Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Wheel of Time, Mistborn, Magician and Ulldart, the dark time. I'm looking for   new series to read!


I hope you enjoyed reading through all of that and hope to see you guys around ;)

Greets!

Hallo Felix,

Een groet uit Nederland.

It's nice to meet somebody here that isn't on the other side of the world. Although there will be many more members who live not that far, I'm sure.
Fantasy is distant from the real world. Because that’s the only way to oversee reality.

Yes, there's plenty in the UK, and many around other European countries too :)
