About Me


Start in Utrecht without any money and see where I can get to.



my name is Benjamin.

I take photographs, I study journalism, I make coffee, I'm easy going, I'm friendly and I'm very bad at selling myself.

However, I'll be more than happy to wander any city and show anyone the favorite bits of the cities that I know.


It'll be alright.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've met great people who have made me feel right at home in any new city. I've made friends. I've even celebrated my birthday with complete strangers in a place i'd never visited before. It's like having family everywhere you go. Awesome.



I also like getting lost in new places.

  • photography
  • coffee
  • music
  • hiking
  • camping
  • journalism

Music, Movies, and Books

Yikes! thats quite a list and it really needs to be updated, but I don't know where to begin.

Let's just start with White Stripes, Cat Stevens, Jimmy Hendrix, Arctic Monkeys....etc etc

As for Movies:
About Schmidt, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Up in the Air, Goodbye Lenin and the list goes on...

Haruki Murakami, Carlos Ruiz Zafón

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking down into the grand canyon, camping and then hiking out again. Talking to someone we couldn't actually see in the dark, on the way up and then having to walk 7 miles back to the car because no one would give us a ride.
