About Me


Backpack the world with no money, bike the Tour de France, succesfully mastering Russian.


Hi! My name is Elzemiek and I am a university student in Groningen, where I study International Relations. I had my first experience with Couchsurfing when I traveled the UK with friends and I loved the concept! I am slightly shy, but I really enjoy hosting people from all over the world in my (tiny) house and getting to know them! For me , meeting people is a way of life. I do, however, have Asperger's Syndrome, a milt form of autism. Strangely enough, this only makes me more fascinated by the world around me :)


As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
(Proverbs 27:17)

Having Jesus in my life has opened my eyes!!


Watching and playing sports (especially football, speedskating, rollerblading and running), watching movies, travelling, learning new languages, postcrossing and going out with friends!
