Join Couchsurfing to see Bart’s full profile.
Hello there, my name is Bart.
I'm fascinated by people and dogs and like spending loads of time with them.
Being able to afford the travels I'm a social worker and passionate about coaching people in their early state of life. To enjoy my life the most I try to live in the moment and have dialogues with laughter and a coffee/wine/beer/beedie nearby
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
On my surfs I've made new friends, seen memorable places and experienced wonderful moments. When I'm hosting I want to be the same experience for those who stop at my place
People; those who really listen and the ones it's nice listening to
Music, Movies, and Books
Love the movies, but not watching much anymore. Some favourites are La grande bellezza, Call me by your name, Casablanca - and every other movie with Humphrey Bogart
Also I like the series Frasier and The Wire. Please let me know if you're a fan too, you get my couch right away! ;-)
Favourite musicians: The xx - Alt-J - The National
- Sufjan Stevens - The tallest man on earth
Best book: "It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it"
~ Oscar Wilde
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One day I found a little guy on four legs who got lost in the streets of Portugal. We became best friends and loved traveling together.
