About Me


Travel, stand still,soak in, enjoy.


38 years old with the ambition to never grow up. Easy going, seeking adventure, open to new experiences, independent, cultural omnivore, likes to watch the world go by.


You don't have time, you make time. (although it is sometimes also difficult for me to abide to this philosophy ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Please understand that I sometimes get over flooded with requests since Amsterdam is a popular place to stay. Also I combine couchsurfing with Airbnb and Home exchange so as you can imagine, I juggle quite a bit ;-)

So although I do not always have the time to respond, I try hard to answer anyone who tried their BEST to write something personal :). Sometimes I am just too busy and if I do have guests, at least I want to welcome them properly and make time for them and not go about like it is a hostel.

Someone said to me once that if you are not able to travel, at least through Couch Surfing you are welcoming the world to your house! And I really like this thought! I also have been home exchanging for quite some years already, seen a lot of great people and great houses and enjoy the trust,hospitality and to actually feel at home in another place


Skiing, learning how to surf, hiking in nature, nature aesthetics, design, photography, art, (electronic) music, cooking,gardening, surfing the net, liking geekgadgets, scouting vintage stuff especially old chairs, forgotten utensils, old family pictures, well basically old but beautifully designed shit ;-)

Music, Movies, and Books

Too much to mention, just ask me when around… I'm quite knowledgable and passionate when it concerns movies, music and books from jazz to techno and classical, from horror, art house and mind benders and everything in between. Books=they always have some knowledge or sentiment in them ;-) Always eager to exchange and learn about new stuff and discovering gems.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Diving underneath a giant jellyfish colony in Koto Kinabalu (Borneo). Hitch Hiking to Berlin, Meeting Norman Mailer and Sonny Rollins, Organizing a tremendous amount of music concerts and festivals and experiencing the satisfaction of creating a great experience for the visitors. A club-crawl NYE Tokyo, with the fastest Japanese driver I ever met (I still hear his maniacal giggling! Literally going up to eleven, what a great night). Catching a Jimjilbang addiction in Korea (sitting in 55c with a pink pyjama), what a brilliant pass time!. Skiing in Hakuba, Japan watching mountains that seemed to have escaped from the old ink paintings. Watching the stars in the Morrocan mountains in the middle of absolutely nowhere, hot tubbing in Breckenridge. Being amidst the sublimity of the Rocky Mountains. Cruising the Mekong Delta with a little boat. Getting to this incredible Nova Planet party in the Ban Lieu of Paris, dancing to mexican conquistadores house. Tasting delicious local food in some corners of the world (or at least being surprised by it ;-) After 10 years going back to university to do a master-program in film and photographic studies, somewhat like the 40 year old virgin (laugh)
