Join Couchsurfing to see Alwin’s full profile.
Hey all, my name is Alwin and I am a Dutch guy born in Taiwan (but lived in the Netherlands all my life). I recently finished a masters degree and work full time now. I am eager to help anyone out who is looking for a short stay and needs a place to sleep! I prefer weekends as the rest I work and cannot leave someone in the house and I have to kick you at at 8 am ;).I would love to hear your crazy traveling stories and drink a beer or 12 together.
Lately I havent hosted anyone as I was pretty broke. Maybe you can convince me to host you! If you are with two, please link their profiles too else I cant consider it(I wanna know who gets in my house). I will try to respond to every request but my phone wont send any notifications anymore.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I used to dance every thursday and do sports multiple times a week, feel free to join. Besides that I like to party or grab a beer with some friends(student life, be prepared to experience Dutch student life). In my spare time i play video games so a guest wont really bother me.
Music, Movies, and Books
I dont really have any preferred music genre. I listen mostly to (K-)Pop and Rock. Its more that I like/dislike a song rather than the genre. Music is not defined by style, everyone can have their own taste.
Books are not my favourites as I find it incredible hard to stay awake while reading, even when its an amazing book, 3 pages and im out.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I think going on a studytrip to Israel is pretty amazing. Being in a country terrorised by war and so close to Syria maked you value life in Holland. But ive seen how beautiful that country can be!
Another thing is winning the Dutch student eSports competition. Prize: a trip to Taiwan to compete at the world championship! Fun fact: it was my first time in Taiwan back since I was born. Gosh I miss the temperature and food.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you the basics of Dutch and I am a fluent english speaker. I have broad selection of interests so we can chill with a beer and talk about almost anything!
I'd also love to learn more about your culture and its unique living.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can offer you dry humour and I am very polite.
