My mother is writing a book about me (not sure or she is joking or not), when it is on the market, I'll tell you ;)
Very important! If you need a couch, please read my profile entirely until the end, the two parts 'About' and 'My home'
Unfortunately we only can host during Belgian school holidays because we both work hard, My girlfriend Melanie is a teacher and I teach too and manage a computer shop. Her profile:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love couchsurfing, why? It changed my life in a good way and until now almost every experience was amazing, most people who are in couchsurfing have a good attitude of life! It feels they are like family!
I join/organize regulary couchsurfing meetings: hikes, food'n pub meetings, new member meetings, parties with different subjects... My mission? Bringing people together from different cultures! If people need advise about couchsurfing, as a CS ambassador I am always available.
In my life I helped a lot of people and sometimes it turned against me with really bad consequences, gossip and stuff..., but I am happy to be in couchsurfing now, in that way I can help people on different levels!
Sports: fitness, cycling, swimming , hiking
Discovering other cultures and history, nice cities and beautiful nature
I am petrolhead...
- pub crawls
Music, Movies, and Books
Top Gear, Wheeler dealers, Fifth Gear,
Highlander (the series),
Saving Private Ryan
Everything what is not too loud with some rhythm... so music! :D
Still about 3000 comics to read...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Giving two begging gipsy kids in Poland some warm food, it was 10 times more then I would give money. They where very happy and hiding for their parents when they ate it... I was almost crying.
Teach, Learn, Share
For 12 years I was a teacher in high school and I still teach/train adults => besides basic computer training I am also training adults to prepare them for the job market and adults who wanna learn something because of interest reasons.
One important thing I learned: people who don't wanna change their mind in any way are dumb people. So if you want to evolve, try to open your mind for new things around you, how hard it sometimes is...
What I Can Share with Hosts
Sharing Couchsurfing experiences, mostly strong stories, really strong stories ;)
Meeting people from other countries and cultures, it makes you humble and it is helping you seeing the world from another perspective.
