About Me

*Always read my messages, sometimes I just forget to respond (sorry, I don’t travel with a simcard usually)
Im joining couchsurfing because of they cultural exchange. So no money exchange. (Not interested in paid tours etc)

My name is Gerbrand. Born in Leeuwarden (The Netherlands) but inspired by the world.

I'm an easy-going, open-minded and curious person. I love traveling, meeting new people around the world and discovering other cultures/modern art.
All to expend my horizon.

I really like to combine my trips with meeting up fellow couchsurfers/locals and staying in hostels. I really can feel home everywhere and I love to have good conversations about people, places and inspiring things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on Couchsurfing to learn more about other cultures, improve my English skills and see more of the world.


I enjoy travelling (obviously), walking the streets of a new city, street art, cooking a great dinner and of course a beer or two on the weekend.
I just graduated and I'm working for a Digital Marketing Agency in Groningen and Amsterdam.

I can teach you more about the Dutch culture, share my happiness and curiosity for art and travel pictures ( I'm interested in a lot of things acutally.
