Traveling is a Damn Serious Business

Traveling is a damn serious business

I need to be abroad from time to time

To escape from myself and this country

But I actually hate to travel

“Traveling is a damn serious business”

Somebody once said

And may I add, nerve wrecking too

I speak five Euro languages more or less

But people associate my dark skin color

With Africa, especially the Portuguese

That’s because you speak Portuguese

My smart girlfriend says. Of course!

Dutch people address me in English

Even though I’m Dutch; crazy, isn’t it?
