NOTICE: I can only host people on short term requests (not more than a week in advance). I cannot commit to requests further away in time unless I contact you myself. SOS requests: always try, no guarantee though.
I have been living in the center of Amsterdam on and off for about 20 years. I have done a lot of voluntary work in a few countries in the past and love meeting people and see what thrives them. My main themes are creation and exploration. Things I love doing: drawing sick controversial scenes (so be warned when you see them!), writing, work together, contemplate, go to a pub, hiking, learning new things, have open conversations and try to change a tiny bit of humanity for the better. I'm rather sensitive and a bit of an introvert, but you will probably not notice. I'm very caring and independent. I'm a vegetarian, so I would appriciate it if you do not eat meat or fish while staying with me.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am an idealist and believe not everything in the world should come with a price, I think it is great to meet people from different backgrounds from all over the globe. Of course taking for granted that we respect each other and are a little sensitive towards each other if it comes to behaviour. We should share this extraordinairy world as it is the only one we have for the near future.
