Personal Quotes (2)

Within Temptation first got together in high school. It was a little before my time, but the rest of the guys would meet up when they didn't have classes and go to the smoking room - Dutch schools have special smoking areas - and talk about music, all huddled together having cigarettes.
When they had time, my parents liked to travel in a small van on safaris and road trips. On the whole, I was a very happy child, but travelling around had a certain impact on my life. I don't think it was always good for me. But I did see a lot of the world, in a positive and a negative way. I got to see first-hand that not everyone lives like us.
