About Me


Carpe Diem !!! Life is too short to worry


Well what should I tell you here,

My name is Danny Gooris, and I live close to Brussels, the capital of Belgium, which is known for it best of the world chocolates and beers ;-))

I'm 43 years young, working as a EMEA Manager for Academic section for an American Multinational who's a worldwide leader in software, database and java programming.

My friends would describe me as a friendly guy, who likes to socialize (that why I want to try Couch Surfing), who has his hart at the right place, who knows to put things in perspective, who always tries to see the good things in life, who wants to discover, who likes adventures.

I have respect for everyone regardless religion, nationality, gender, believes etc... and I expect to be treated the same ;-))

I'm always in for fun !!! Love to travel, to meet new people, enjoy a glass of wine or the Belgian Beers ;-)), like to go the movies, like to walk, sports (soccer, jogging, tennis, squash, cycling).

If you want to know more about me, don't hesitate to contact me.


Carpe Diem. I just enjoy day by day !!! Life is really too short to stand still.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, as I would like to use some couches around the world, it's only normal I'm open my couches for other couchsurfers around the world ;-) I've got a seperate room with bed, I've also got a futon, and a couch to crash on. All the rest of the house can be shared... like kitchen, bathroom, terras etc...

I live 500 away from the trainstation, that brings you in less then 11minutes to the Central Station of Brussels ;-))

If I'm around and got time, I'm willing to guide you around...if not, I'l definately can hand out some tips !!!


In Hawaii in 2010, tried it out for the first time, with 3 different hosts for 10 days, and all 3 where a gigantic success !!! I can only recommend it to everyone out there, who's looking for great holidays, with a local touch, culture, people and kitchen...it beats any 5* hotel !!! Personal experience with locals is just TOP.

Recently in 2014, I was pleased to stay with my CS host in Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte during the World Cup, experiences I will never forget.

CS is the way to travel !!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe, everyone can learn from each other every day...even the smallest things, can turn out to be more important that you might have expected.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Oohh that's rather difficult to say, but for work I have been traveling extensively across the world, combined with my holiday's, I do have a pretty good experience when it comes to traveling.

I can share with you all you need to know about Belgium ;-)) I'll try to be a good host, tell you where to go and where NOT to go if you don't like the touristic places ;-))

Further, I will share my smile, humor, one of the free bedrooms, and my fridge ;-)
