About Me


We are a Dina and Sven and we love to travel whenever we can. When we are not traveling we are working as a salesmanager (Dina) and a photographer (Sven). I, Dina, work my ass off trying to keep every store in my district on track. Besides spending to much hours doing that, I love to travel and to have fun each day. I love to see and explore the world. Fascinated by other cultures I want to taste every local dish :) I, Sven, work as a freelance photographer. I have my own studio where I spent most of my time. Mostly I shoot artist in need for some presspics, but I can be found on assignments wherever my camera takes me. (check my page on facebook searching for Sven Van Gestel Photography) Together we took a trip around the world where we met some amazing people and lifetime friends. All those great experiences makes us want to meet you.

We are easy going. We share the philosophy that everybody is unique in their own way and more then worthy to have a couple of beers together ;)

Mentioning your couch, we are comfy and grateful with whatever kind of accomodation there is to offer. We like to give back to community to host whenever our schedule allows us to.


Life is about moments.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We started using CS when we began our travels around the world.


We've slept on many couches all over the world and met awesome people along the way.
