About Me


Learn about the world


I love art, painting and animationfilm
I love to explore the world, like tarveling, reading books. I love to sing :)
I just try to understand myself why i do the things i do...

I also like to meet people with interesting stories about there lives or what they know, who also have love for nature and all living things, and those who make something of they're lives, constructive people.


When life gives you lemons, you paint that shit gold!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

as Host
I live near the centre of Ghent. Its 15 min walk to the centre and with the bus (busstop is just around the corner) it takes 5 min.

I like to meet some new people, show them the nice things here in ghent and also like to take them out (anywere..when/if possible)

If they like, i can cook all sorts of traditional Belgian dishes

I've hosted people from UK, Spain, Netherlands, Letvia, Australia,...

as guest
My first and also a good experience was in the south of france.
I also stayed with a hostfamily for 6 weeks in beijing and that was also a nice experience. And Croatia!! Very very lovely people
They all are very nice people i stayed with.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being in Beijing, just before the Olympics started...amzing to see all those people,...

By traveling in europe i saw its amazing how many different cultures and nature we have. I hate what ploitics can say and do, cause my experience is, that we have nice people everywhere

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm very curious about other peoples habits.
I believe if you learn about the diffrence of the other you learn more about yourself and the world. I think you learn to have more respect.
