About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learning and also laughing as much as possible. Meeting new people.

ABOUT ME

Born and raised in Groningen. Went to Ecuador and Spain for a year. Lived in Berlin for two years.
I love playing guitar, singing, laughing, feeding my mind with interesting stuff, travelling, experiencing new things, meeting new people. I'm really into Ukraine lately and like reading and learning about that country.
Right now I'm looking for a fulltime job, and I am volunteering the hospital in Groningen (driving around patients), and working as a Networkcoach for people who are a bit lonely and want to expand their social network.

PHILOSOPHY

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm interested in people from all over the world, their life story, and to learn more about their culture and way of living.
I also like helping people out in any way I can, so Couchsurfing is a perfect platform for this.

Interests

I like singing, playing guitar, watching documentaries, podcasts, traveling, history, stand up (Louis CK, Bo Burnham, Tom Segura), and comedy series.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did a road trip through Spain for three weeks with two friends, which was really amazing. I also did the same in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria with a friend. Just did a semi solo trip in April 2016 to Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine. Big fan of Ukraine and learning more about the country.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to play guitar or how to make a really badass tomato sauce.
