About Me

I was raised in a small mining town with nothing more than one good groceries store as the main attraction in the area... I quickly moved to the city to get a degree and now I am stuck in Pretoria as a civil engineer. I am not shy of organizing a trip and will jump into any adventure that comes my way. I have a great passion for the outdoors and sport and love cooking

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

What an awesome way to travel ! Its not just visiting a new country , but you actually meet new people from a "different world", share stories and experience different cultures.


The beauty of nature: hiking, photography, cycling
and a good sportgame: Rugby, cricket, squash and i will take you on with a chess game...

Music, Movies, and Books

Love any music, but particularly Monster and Men, Coldplay and Mumford and Sons.
Also like good movies like Gladiator, Forrest Gump and any Marvel Movie.
And ja... I dont do a lot of reading...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiked 5 days in the Drakensberg with a friend over 80km. As we only had a marked trail the first and last day, we had to use a map and my phone's GPS to guide us through the mist and tricky terrain.

Teach, Learn, Share

I will like to share some local South African music with you from artist which I love;
If cooking is your thing, I will also like to give you some iconic recipes you can try out if you want some South African flavor to your dinner !
