About Me

Lived in Bangkok for 7 years..had to leave for I'm back again! 😍

Trying to get my life back in Bangkok. I enjoy all things that this metropolis has to offer, but what I really love are the more local things, for instance the real authentic Thai bars here, that have a very different vibe from bars back home, local night markets, etc.

I'm very easy-going. Love to travel, meet new people, talk, go for drinks, clubbing, eat out,..whatever. I try to take things as they come: a wasted day is the one without laughs.

Look deeper.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hosted CS-ers a few times in my hometown in The Netherlands.
I've been living in Bangkok now for 3 years, renting a small apartment. No spare bedroom and a small VERY limited facilities for someone to crash. But I still love to show people around the AND nighttime.

I hosted some folks from Czech, Germany, the USA and China. I visited some CS-ers in Thailand and the US. All of these were good experiences, some of them where even fantastic, and I'll go out of my way to see those new friends again in the future.


Love to go out for drinks and eat, shop, clubs, sports and games, the movies, talk for hours...Everything can be enjoyable, if the company is good.
I'm not someone who can sit around and do nothing for a longer period of time, haha..

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies/series: Goodfellas, Big Night, Heroes, Densha Otoko, Soprano's, Departures.
Music; so much..too much

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Becoming best friends with someone in three days time. Watching a triple rainbow. Learning to dive. Rediscovering my own boundaries.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well..what do I (think I) have to offer...? I can teach you to shoot pool, have stupid discussions 'bout philosophy, make cocktails and cook almost everything. But mostly: I can show you the Thai side of Bangkok.places that most tourists/visitors will never see.
If you're staying at my place, I'll try to make your stay as pleasant and interesting as possible.
