Hello kind stranger,


My name is Woody. I live in Vlezenbeek, close to Brussels, the capital of Belgium. After long years of wandering around in the sewerage of Brussels, I looked forward to see the world and to make friends on the five continents.

So, I left my niche and started my journey on June, the 6th, 2006 (06.06.06). My parents were very worried when I left home, but I promised to keep them informed about all my adventures through my website http://woodyrat.blogspot.com. Please have a look, you can learn more about me on it.

As you can see I hardly have any luggage with me. I could always count on the warmth and hospitality of the people I met. Thanks to all those friendly folks I finally dropped in on you.


Now, when you are reading this, you probably are wondering what I expect from you?

If you donít mind I would like to stay a while with you. Not too long, a couple of days or a couple of weeks at maximum, since finally I have to move on. While I am staying with you, could you please send a message for my parents and all the people who follow my adventures through my website http://woodyrat.blogspot.com? They would appreciate it very much if you mail some comments and (if possible) a photo to woodyrat@gmail.com. You also can write something down in my guestbook: a little thought, a verse, a drawing, or just your name.

When appropriate, could you then please hand me on to someone you trust and of whom you certainly know that he or she will help me further?


Oh yes, I am expected back home in Vlezenbeek, Belgium on September, the 9th, 2009 (09.09.09).

After I left you, I hope you keep following me through me website. You certainly have to look on September, the 9th, 2009. Then, there will be a surprise for all my friends who helped me on my journey.


Thanks a lot and so long. Itís been good to know you!
