About Me


Enjoy our freedom, meet people and learn a lot


We are a married couple, together for a long time now! We live in the Netherlands but are happy when we are on the move. We like to travel and to meet other people, to learn, to share, to add some knowledge to our life.

We like the quiet places, not the tourist attractions. We love to make a fire at the beach, watch the stars, have contact... and more.....


Be happy and gratefull!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think we participate by traveling to other countries and learn more about sharing the things we "own". Back in the Netherlands we are open for others, even without the couchsurfing website.


I never had a real experiance with surfing a couch. We met a few members from the couchsurfing in Nelson NZ, they were great and we had a nice meeting where al the things were shared........ opend the beer and talked with interesting people.
While I hitch-hiked trough europe I had some unexpected couches to sleep on. I've met some great "troubadours" in Geneve, they took me and my brother to all the bars and let us sleep in their house. Since our travels in Australia we met a lot of couchsurfers, people we stayed with and hosted us. It was a great time with all of them. Thank you so much!
