About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My travel companion, Matthijs Nuus, introduced me to the world of couchsurfing. Together, we went to Lithuania for a few days where we have met locals and other interesting people due to couchsurfing. It was a pleasant experience for me, therefore I decided to pick it up and made a profile. I want to meet people out there in the world who one usually wouldn't run into.
