About Me

*Read this first: https://support.couchsurfing.org/hc/en-us/articles/200640010-How-do-I-write-a-good-couch-request-

* 0-tolerance! Due to the high number of spammers and other disrespectful members, I unfortunately see no other option than to report every violation of the CS policy and guidelines to the Trust & Safety team *

* In September I only host participants of the yearly Prague Hospex Fest CzechSurfing

I'm a Dutch guy and I live in Prague, Czech republic, I organise regular events, including karaoke nights. I am currently living in Vinohrady, Prague 2 but I used to live in my favourite part of Prague: Zizkov, Prague 3. I can be a grumpy old man, so read the "My Home" section of my profile carefully before sending me a request if you want a friendly reply ;)

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that what we see is all there is. Life is pointless, but since we're here anyway we could just as well make the best out of it. So have fun and make the world a better place by spreading happiness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I enjoy hosting people, because I like meeting new people, especially from different cultures. So I don't want to offer just my couch, I'd like to hang out with and get to know my guests a little. I'm not a babysitter though and I do have my own life here.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfing, hosting, organizing.
I had an amazing CouchSurfing experience in Mexico City. The CS community there is great!
