About Me

First of all I would like to say that CS is not to help you find a free place to stay. It's not meant to help you travel cheaply!

It's about experiencing local life, discovering local cuisine, sharing, caring, making new friends, ... So if you are just looking to travel cheaply and a free couch, please skip my profile!

But if you're into making friends, meeting local people, sharing local life, tasting local food, etc you're very welcome! Every person who enters my life is considered a friend meaning I expect you also to behave like one too. I can show you around to the nicest places, let you discover the local food in some nice restaurants if you're into that or just cook some nice Belgian home food and have a delicious local beer. Without forgetting the typical Belgian sweets like chocolate & waffels of course! If you need a map, i can provide you one if I'm not able to join you into the city because of work for example. My recommendation is 1-2 days for Brussels. Other very nice cities are definitely Bruges, Gent, Antwerpen, Namur, Dinant and the coast if the weather is nice!

So be welcome my friends... Welcome to Belgium !

ABOUT ME

I'm a globetrotter and Couchsurfing is the best initiative ever! I hosted more than 350 people so far (unfortunately not all of them leave references), both here & in Croatia & I surfed a lot as well. All such great experiences! Meeting new people, discover the local life, sharing nice conversations about their country & culture, enjoy new places... That's the best part about traveling! So if you'd like to visit Brussels or Belgium, don't hesitate to contact me :)

In 2013 I did an amazing world trip, meeting fantastic people all over the planet through CS and it gave me even more passion to host my fellow travelers who happen to pass through little old Belgium for some chocolate & beer...

It learned me one thing about people... There are no strangers. Only good friends who didn't had the chance to meet each other in person yet!
