About Me

I’m just a normal guy who loves adventure. I’m very impulsive and like to make quick decision. I love change and seeing new things on a daily basis. Making new friendships and share stories with people from around the world is on top of my list. Always up for a massive challenge or try things I have not done before!

- Still have a HUGE Bucket List to tick off....

- Currently on a cycling adventure where I'll be cycling from coast to coast through all the 7 continents on our planet.

- Love sports: Kite Surfing, Surfing, Scuba Diving, Fishing, Rugby, Cricket, Cycling.. and the list can go on.

PHILOSOPHY :

- No Regrets!
- If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!
- The cave that frightens you, holds your fortune
- The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I Hosted my first CouchSurfers the end of 2012 and I loved it so much they ended up staying at my place for over a month!

Since then I've been to Asia, Australia & Europe where I met some awesome couchsurfers on the way and made great friends.

Unfortunately I won't be able to host anyone in the next few years because of the cycling adventure we will take on... but I hope to meet hundreds of people on the way!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted people back home and surfed at a few people in Asia, Australia & Europe. I love the way Couchsurfing connect people that have the same interest and mindsets in life!

Every Couchsurfing experience gives you a new perspective in life, learn about other peoples cultures and make great new friends!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you any words i my home language Afrikaans.... and I'll translate it correctly.... or most of the times ;)

I love to talk discuss and explain what I and others experience in countries they travel through... We won't be talking on how beautiful the Eiffel Tower was! I like to talk about cultures, things you discovered in countries I won't now about and what the people are like! Crazy stories are the ones people remember!
