About Me

I'm a 26 y'o Dutchie with a great passion for advertising and exploiting it to discover various parts of the world :)
I'm a big fan of dogs, an occasional cake-baker, a writer but very bad in 'About Me's..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm about to leave everything I know behind to explore the other side of the world. It would be brilliant to kickstart my Sydney-adventure this way.


I've got a slight obsession with dogs. But fear not: I don't have one and I can keep it under control.
I'm a writer. Something that probably doesn't seem that way from the bits and pieces written here, but with my writing can sell anything but myself ;)
After living in London for 3,5 years I've got a well-trained liver and I'm sure Sydney will help maintain this.
I love immersive theatre; may you ever have the opportunity to go to Secret Cinema and Punch Drunk: Do it!
I used to work in a cake-shop. I don't often bake anymore, but I have the occasional dedicated session filled with sugar and foodcoloring.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read embarrassingly little for a writer. However, the book I recently enjoyed immensely is 'Us' by David Nicholls.
Favourites in movies and music shift all the time; recently I discovered Oh Wonder and it's been on repeat ever since.
Fight Club never fails to blow my mind, New Girl never fails to make me laugh and Room is the last film that left me sobbing.

All in all there's a lot that satisfies my eyes and ears though.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It doesn't make me a better person, but I loved it: bungeejumping twice on one day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can't wait to make Sydney my new home- so all top tips for settling in are welcome; I can't keep couchsurfing ;)
May you ever have plans to visit the low lands or London; I can give you all tips I have and make sure you'll know how to order your first drink in Dutch.
