About Me


To show the world that vegan food is necessary and desirable


Being a Happy Herbi (vegan) since March 2009.
I make a living with my vegan business Happy Herbi. I sell raw chocolates and energy balls. You can order them on etsy.com/shop/happyherbi.


You got to have rain to have rainbows.
Change what you can't accept, and accept what you can't change.
Your wish is your command.
Affirm the positive, visualize the positive and expect the positive, and your life will change accordingly.
Not taking action is the biggest risk.
When you need nothing you can have anything.
Expect the best, be prepared for the worst: f*ck what others think and do your own thing.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would love to show you my city, take you to the park for a vegan picknick and a swim or to my favorite pub.
I can also be a perfect vegan city guide in Amsterdam and Utrecht, which means I can show you the best vegan friendly stores and restaurants


My first couchsurfing experience was in Berlin in 2009. I have been surfing and hosting a lot since..
It's a perfect way to meet persons with similar interests and ideas..
Couchsurfing and hosting make me gain trust in people and have unique experiences. I made several friends trough couchsurfing. I love it!
