About Me


Exploring the world and being influenced by the creative people I meet along the way


I have quit a busy job during the working days but after work I balance my time as much as possible for my friends and family and the sports I like. I have opinions about everything but stay open minded through a deep and tested regime of "not taking myself seriously" but being serious about what I'm doing. I try to have as much as fun as I can have!


Try to live the max. You are responsible for your own acts! Make friends

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to travel and make use of the couchsurfing community like my travelling towards Russia in 2011 where I met some great couchsurf people and had a good time and also like to meet people in the Netherlands whenever there is a good opportunity!
