About Me

I grew up in a city called Haarlem, near Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. I am currently living together with my girlfriend in Maastricht. We both study Japanese and communication. We'd be glad to offer a place to sleep for 1 or 2 people travelling through Europe or the Netherlands. When i have time, i'd love to show people around and maybe drink a beer or something.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am always interested in meeting people from other countries. I enjoy learning new things, talking about differences and similarities between cultures and showing people around in the Netherlands.
