About Me


If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.


There is a lot to tell about a person, yet every time I am facing an empty box asking me to write something about myself, it feels like I have nothing to share.
I guess that does say something about me. I'm not easily put in a box. I enjoy life as it displays itself in front of me... I can enjoy walking through a city I've never been before and get excited by just turning the corner of a random street. I can get equally excited watching the sky from my city appartment in Gent. I believe that when you look at things from the right angle, everything can be adventurous.

I love people, the concept "don't talk to strangers" cannot be applied to me. Everybody is a stranger until you get to know them. I enjoy meeting people and finding their view in life. It is hard to come across people who don't have anything in common with you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As I am new to this I think my participation will be getting to know how this community works and finding my own little place in here.


I don't really have "" experiences, yet I have some experience with travelling and crashing on somebody's couch. From my friends in The Hague to Madrid, and my stay in Catarredor in Portugal, where I could put my little sleeping bag in the attic of some friendly people's house.
*to be continued*


I enjoy the finer things in life... I love concerts, going out to get a drink, staying in with friends and/or a good movie... I love travelling and meeting new people. I like exploring cities, making long walks, finding little undiscoverd (or barely discovered) places and beaches. ...

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a wide range of music styles that I enjoy, pretty situation & mood related. I enjoy old soul and funk, good raw rock bands, ambient, d&b and some electronic music.

I could give you a superlong list of movies I enjoy, but I'll try to just give some of my all time favourites:
The Usual Suspects, Big Fish, Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, Spirited Away, Apocalypse Now, Any Way the Wind Blows, Donnie Darko,...

Same goes for books... Love reading any good book that I get my hands on. The Discovery of Heaven, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Secret History, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, The Shadow of the Wind, The Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, Choke, Generation X...

Teach, Learn, Share

Anybody can teach me anything. I am sort of a sponge... I love absorbing all sorts of knowledge that I come across.
