About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Happiness is perfume

ABOUT ME

We are a young couple who decided to make the trip of our lives together. We both decided to quit our jobs and live freely for the next couple of months.

He: Stijn (pronounce like 'Stan' in South Park): 26, web designer - DTP operator - freelance photographer. Loves huge contrasts, always looking for new things to discover, get to learn new people. Chaotic, wannabe-artist, open-minded, helpful and very honest.

She: Caroline : two weeks older than Stijn : artist in a every aspect of life. Great story-writing and drawing skills. Loves children and can be very interested and enthusiastic once she survives the morning. Mixes up left from right all the time.

Both: very interested in culture, art, photography, movies,... Traveling through Europe and Asia. He, on the wheels of our pretty rusty and old Yugo Zastava. She, navigating, choosing the right tunes along the way. Both enjoying the most beautiful nature, looking for unforgettable places and people. We both started a new chapter in our rather young lives and guess what, you can be a (small) part of it ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

life's too short - time goes too fast - go for it - don't waste your time

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

A couch from time to time would be welcome. When we're back in town, we will be delighted to share our place with other travelers.
In 2008 we will take a break of all hard work and will travel around Europe with Mongolia as our final destination. Our trip will last about 6 months. Driving around in our old Zastava Yugo, sleeping mainly in a tent and taking lots of pictures...
