About Me


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


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. And I also love my niece, she's really sweet.


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


Would like to host some people in Groningen and also meet people who want to know more about Groningen and/or are looking for a local here.


I've hosted two people for the first time in May 2013, and it was a lot of fun. I've never surfed a couch though. Usually I just meet up with people.


I like singing,

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.

Teach, Learn, Share

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