About Me

I'm a Dutch helicopter pilot, currently living in Schaarbeek, Belgium. I want to make the most out of my travels, meeting as many people as I can on the way. I've travelled a lot in the past, so I have a lot of stories to tell!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To experience places through the eyes of its locals. I still want to see as much as I can of the world and meet interesting people, so couchsurfing is absolutely perfect for all that. Traveling like a nomad, with as little luggage as possible, is very appealing to me.


I love what I do: flying helicopters. Anything aviation is of interest for me. I'm a huge wilderness enthousiast and have completely fallen in love with the African bush.

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything Tarantino.
Recent reads: Discipline is Destiny, Hope is the Last to Die, The Wheel of Time series.
Music: Just about anything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moved to Africa to fly there.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you anything about aviation: from meteorology to physics to aspects of law, you name it. I'm also quite proficient in multiple languages, so I can teach some of those.
I've gotten into wildlife guiding recently and can tell you all about the African animals

What I Can Share with Hosts

A good conversation and lots of jokes that at least I find funny. I've also been around places and have loads of stories to tell. I'll buy you a beer too, if you like a nice pint like me!
