About Me


I'm a Brussels-based twenty-something trying to figure out life on planet Earth, with ups and downs. I can be confused and distracted at times, but also very cheerful and excited. I've got both a hermit and a dramaqueen living inside me and consider myself as a continuous work-in-progress. I enjoy people and their company and I'm keen on learning and experiencing new things every day. I like serving people many glasses of wine (and trying to fish out their secrets in the meantime;)).


"Do one thing every day that scares you"

(Baz Luhrman)

"Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fly can't bird, but a bird can fly.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie"

(A.A. Milne)

"Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast."

(Oscar Wilde)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Very positive! You get to know a country's culture so much better with couchsurfing and you meet so many interesting and nice people along the way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My journey through India! It was the kind of culture shock I really needed.
