About Me


I will become 120 years. Before that day, I will enjoy life, together with my lovely Rwandan wife Grace and travel around our beautiful planet.


I am an optimistic dreamer who will help to make the world a nice place to live. They may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. .


Think possitive ! When you think possitive, you're always able to do more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS, it's a way of life. If you don't couchsurf, you don't really travel. I will climb the mount Everest to speak the clouds about it, will sing with the birds a song for it, will swim with sharks from the seven seas to spread the message : CS is wonderful !!
I tell my friends and the people around me about it, to make them warm for the idea to become one day in them life a CS'er.


I hosted wonderful people from all over the planet, I surfed couches, organised and joined several CS events..


Travelling of course, but I am also interested in politics. The politicians make the laws, so it's important that we choose the right people who do that on a correct way.

  • motorcycles
  • politics
  • traveling
  • backgammon

Music, Movies, and Books

I like many kinds of music, from Mozart to Madonna. It depends off the moment. If I really have to choose a favorite, than I choose The Beatles.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In Pamukkale, Turkey, there is a wonderful old Roman theatre. It's open day and night. In the night, I went to there to look to the stars on the sky. That was a fantastic moment.
I drove with my motorbike from Belgium to Turkey.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can explain you the very complicated Belgian political situation, I can also teach you how to become a good backgammon player, I can learn from you what you want to teach me.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I travelled all over the planet, was in 67 countries, so I can give a lot of information about that. To see the complete list from all the countries and cities that I visited:
I like to share experiences with people from other cultures.
When you take from each culture the best thing, than you create a wonderful world to live in.
