"Trying to live a meaningful life"
Hello! My name is Alex and I am a guy from Holland.
People know me as a introvert person an I can confirm that. People who I meet stated that I am a friendly and respectful person, but you have to find out yourself ;)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Some friends recommended couchsurfing, that why I gave it a try. Now I am using it for more than three years and it brought some of the best experiences in my life! I recommend Couchsurfing to every individual who strives for personal development.
I like to travel (as everyone on couchsurfing seems to do), do sports, try local food and have good conversations about life.
I mostly enjoy the unexpected and that is why I never really plan my travels anymore. Spending time with locals and follow their advice is the best thing you can do! This is also a reason why I often send last minute requests, sorry for that...
- learning new things
- meeting new people
- have fun
- know people
- explore new places
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: not preference, really open for anything.
Books: mainly about human conscious and philosophy. Would like to be more open to thrillers and romans.
Movies: I think I like the Lord of the Rings classics the most.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In South Africa, I have seen real poverty. That what really shocked me... But also the nature there was fantastic (Table Mountain, swimming with pinguïns at Boulders Beach)!
I also did an internship in Slovakia. Really, this country is amazing if you like nature and cheap food/drinks! It was definitely one of the best periods in my entire life.
My third experience was travelling solo and staying at local families in Sri Lanka. By doing this and spending time with Sri Lankan people, I fell in love for the beauty of Sri Lanka and its culture. Spending 6 weeks in Sri Lanka on my own was one of the best decisons that I ever maid.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can share my travel experiences so far. I have big interest in different ways to look at life, but mostly I learned that living a stoic lifestyle is the best option. The only thing we as human beings can control is how we decide to react to certain circumstances!
What I Can Share with Hosts
Good conversations about life and what really matters. But most of all: a open and trustworthy personality :)
