carnaval text

Carnaval Man - European male. 50 years. Athletic Bon Vivant.
You can call me Carnaval Man because I love the vibrancy, fun, colour and sound of a carnaval.
I am seeking a woman who will enjoy sharing visits to carnavals and festivals with me, who will sway to the rhythm and thrill to the sounds of a Brazilian Street Party.
London is my home base but my business takes me around the world. Travelling is my life and a festival in Brazil or the Caribbean gives me a colourful relief from meetings and airports.
Do you love the Samba? Can you dance the Salsa? Come Tango with me and be seduced by the energy of Latin Dance Music.
A companion is needed to join me in Rio de Janiero. I have bought two Grand Stand Seat Tickets for the Samba Parade at the Rio Carnival in 2014. This carnival parade, which happens just before Lent, is the most exciting in the world. Samba Schools parade before the seated public in a riot of colour and a cacophany of sound. I plan to attend the City Ball in Rio Scala so you would need to pack your formal clothes.
Later in the year I will be visiting the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival. This festival celebrates culture, folklore and religion. The six-day party is amazing, I love to follow the floats and the dancing costumed crowds.
I time my Toronto visit to coincide with the Carifiesta Caribbean Carnival. This Canadian Carnival is the best outside of Trinidad and Tobago. The food is amazing at the Toronto carnival, black-eye peas, rice and ice cold beer, delicious. Fish is barbequed on street-side stalls and served with lime and chillies.
My business is in textiles, importing and exporting and I enjoy seeing rich fabrics sculpted into exquisite, flambuoyant costumes. The headresses in carnaval costumes amaze me, the sparkle and feathers and the straight-backed girls who carry those usually heavy headpieces.
Is there a woman out there who feels the excitment and revelry of a carnaval who would enjoy some of the biggest street parties in the world.
Is there a woman who would dress in a carnaval costume, dance with the community along the streets and join me in celebrating the spirit of a variety of people in a vibrant environment.

Text Travel

Travelled a lot, never seen enough

I have seen much of the world. I've conducted business in foreign countries, mostly in the Middle and Far East. What a difference in culture and habits it is! If you want to do business, you have to understand and adjust to the way it's done in the country where you are a guest. In order to be successful, you need to respect the values and standards of the place you are in. For example, in India it seems like everyone is always at least 20 minutes late, so scheduling anything can be tricky - but you need to remember that it's normal there, a part of the local culture. It's also common to see your interlocutor wobble their head, a gesture that can mean yes, no, or a simple acknowledgement of what you are saying. Negotiating a deal in China is specific, too - your business partner will listen to you carefully, trying to find any inconsistencies in your offer, and then negotiate every tiny detail of your deal. Similarly, there are things you should know before doing business in Thailand and Bangkok, too. But if you adapt, all of these countries are great places to stay - with their beautiful temples and unspoiled nature, so different from Europe. It has always been a lot of pleasure to work with skilled and talented colleagues there.

Holidays in the European sun

In my private life, I prefer to stay closer to home. I have often been to Spain, and yet the breathtaking nature, beautiful cities and spectacular sights always surprise me anew. There's Barcelona with The Sagrada Familia, but you can also relax on one of Spain's many coasts. Each season in this country has its own beauty. If you want history, you should go to Italy - in Rome and Milan, the art of past centuries is still stunning. Tuscany is the place for you if you prefer excellent wines and fine restaurants to sightseeing. And now that the borders are no longer an issue, Macedonia can also be added to the list of favourite holiday destinations - with its rugged nature and the magnificent Ohrid Lake, it is a great country to spend your vacation in the Balkans.

With pleasure: the Caribbean

The Dominican Republic is sunny all year round, and the hospitality and genuine smiles that you see everywhere give you energy to confront the radiant heat of the day. With beautiful beaches where you can enjoy sun, sea and sand, it is a pleasure to be there. If you fly further, to Curacao, you will find many treasures and a pleasant climate. You can enjoy diving and a little break in the sun on the beautiful beaches there.

New destinations for the future

There are so many beautiful places in the world that it feels like I haven't seen anything yet. But I'm going to change that. If the opportunity arises, I will return to the countries I know and enjoy. But I want to find new destinations, too, and add new countries to my list of favorites. Australia - so far away, but a beautiful and fascinating continent, with many climates and beautiful scenery. I'd love to enjoy its tranquility and taste the fine wines. New Zealand, with both a subtropical climate and winter sports, and Marlborough where the most delicious wines are produced. South Africa and Botswana, where I would like to go on a wonderful safari before poaching will cause all the rare animals to be eradicated. Canada with its beautiful glacial lakes, forests, bears and whales. And I would still like to go on a jungle trek in Malaysia.


Business or economic activity is what dictates the development of a country and this also reflects in the standards of living of the people. Over the past few decades or so there has been increased economic activity in various economic segments locally and internationally. That said there exist variations in business acumen and type of trade depending on which side you travel to.
United States of America presents many opportunities for everyone seeking to live the American dream. As a mid 50 higher CEO Huub Teesing has often traversed both North and South America in a bid to explore the business opportunities that exist in this vast and blessed land that we have all come to love and respect.
For every American CEO what they are keen on is increasing their financial foot print across the landscape and while at it providing the much needed quality goods and service to the population. That said there are some unique differences between the different frontiers that mark the borders of United States of America. From the Southern States distinct culture and history to the business hubs in Northern States there are many opportunities for enterprise that can be explored profitably.
Through his travel, Huub Teesing has established that the North is by far ahead of the South in terms of economical business related activities but that said the Southern region has witnessed tremendous economic growth to be among the fastest growing areas in the United States. On the other hand the Northern region is well known for its central location of industrial, financial and agricultural services.

From the southern cities such as Memphis,Atlanta,Charlotte, Louisville, Birmingham and Charleston to the Northern cities of Minnesota, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan and Illinois there exist a wide range of business investment opportunities covering various sectors. As an investor, venture capitalist or businessman do not feel shy to explore the opportunities and make life better for the average American. As you traverse the American landscape not only will you get business opportunities but you will also get to enjoy the scenery and unique culture of the local people.
