About Me


Surviving Down-Under


I'm a stubborn man who likes his travels, who is adventurous and a good partner to have a drink or two with. Once engaged in conversation I might have troubles shutting up.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment mostly trying to get a couch or a ride here and there.


Sports (mostly football and tennis)
The experiences of a travel can be subject of discussion for hours.
Sustainable tourism (what went wrong, where did it go wrong and how the **** did that happen?)
Movies and music (festivals)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once I was with a very good friend driving a car in Costa Rica, but at a waterfall I lost the carkeys (and we were a good two hours from civilization), we found a person who didn't speak a word of English (and we weren't good with Spanish to say the least) but we managed to get back to town by the means of a two and a half horseback-ride in the dark and some monk overseer who drove us the remaining hour.

El Cuidad Perdida in Colombia, an amazing five day track through the mountains. The roughness of the track and the determination of all people participating on this track from hell still wakes me up sometimes.

El Mirador Basin in Guatemala, probably the biggest Mayan site in the world, an easy and relatively boring two day walk brings you to the area which leaves you paralyzed. All the 'mountains' and 'hills' you've been walking through and over might be long lost temples and the ones that are excavated and restored leave quite the impression.

Yes, I'm trying to show off, but those things were just amazing :)
