After 5+ years in Kenya, and some months of nomading, I landed in Phnom Penh trying to settle here in a semi-nomadic way. Eager to meet people already based in / from Cambodia, as well as travellers, whom I can show around if I have the time. I work as a freelancer, partly from home. I'm an easy going, open minded, positive and active person. Like to do sports, be in nature, beaches, but I also just need to live in a city. Vegetarian and like to cook (and eat). In general I like to live healthy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Its a great way to meet people and I love the concept of opening your house and sharing food and stories with strangers

Teach, Learn, Share
I can sometimes share a couch, one person only! My house is small and I need my privacy, so usually only 1-2 days.
I also like to hang out and show visitors my place and take them on my random activities. I live near riverside, its very lively and also a lot of backpackers, (sex) tourists, drug dealers, sex bars, (rooftop) bars, restaurants, clubs.
I know very little about tourist attractions and cannot give any advice on that.
