Join Couchsurfing to see Amanda’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm originally from the Netherlands and after having spent quite some time in Latin America, I've now settled in London. I love this city and it looks like I will stay here for some time!
I think I can describe myself as a fun, easy going and open-minded girl who enjoys meeting new people. I love being with friends, traveling, going out, dancing, cooking, reading and running, and generally enjoying life as much as I can.
Be the change you want to see in this world!
Live and let live
Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Swimming with pink river dolphins in the Bolivian jungle
Catching piranha's from that very same river
Walking on Montanita's beach and seeing whales from far away
The fact that I packed my bags at the age of 19 and took off solo to that mysterious continent of South America - the best decision of my life
