About Me

Ek pluis nog klomp dinge uit, maar weet vir seker dat ek nie tans geroep is tot ’n voltydse loopbaan nie. Ek is eindeloos nuuskierig oor byna alles.

Ik ben van vele dingen onzeker; weet echter dat ik niet tegenwoordig een voltijds baan wil. Ik ben altijd maar nieuwsgierig en leer graag van en ervaar nieuwe dingen op nieuwe locaties met nieuwe mensen.

I'm endlessly curious about absolutely everything and enjoy every new acquaintance and destination and experience. Art, cats, nature, design, philosophy, and thinking about the way we humans choose to create and maintain our societies are what define me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Ek reis soveel moontlik, maar verkies (nie net omdat dit goedkoper is nie!) om by mense te bly in plaas van ’n gastehuis of hotel. Aangesien ek nie my eie huis het nie, kan ek jou nou wel nie nooi om ’n slag by my te kom bly om dankie te sê dat ek by jou kon bly nie, maar ek kan wel op ander maniere probeer dankie sê: deur klavier te speel vir jou, te help met enigiets tegnologie- of taalverwant sovêr ek kan, skoon te maak, te organiseer, ’n fotosessie te hou, ensovoorts.

I've given up my flat and am hoping to manage working part-time in order to travel as much as possible – in my own country as well as abroad. Although I can't return a couchsurfing favour with my own couch, I can try to repay kindness in other ways – playing piano for you, helping with techno-stuff or anything language-related, cleaning, organizing, doing a photo-session, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Not sure if "amazing" is the right word, but I talked a guy out of stabbing me with a knife.

Teach, Learn, Share

Ek kan jou help om ’n bietjie Afrikaans, Engels, Nederlands of Duits te leer. Aangesien ek redelik gevorderd is met klavierspel, behoort ek jou te kan help, of jy nou ’n absolute beginner is of al redelik goed. Ek behoort met klomp tegnologiese probleempies te kan help.

Ek leer baie graag basies enigiets wat jy my kan leer! Sal veral aan my Franse, Duitse, en Setswana- en tekenvaardighede wil werk.

ENGLISH:

I can teach some Afrikaans, English, Dutch, or German to anyone who would enjoy that. I am quite advanced at the piano, so I should be able to help at any level, from absolute beginner to intermediate. If you're struggling with something technological, I might be able to help.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Ek geniet rondsit en gesels ewe veel as rondrits en dinge doen en sien en beleef, en glo ek sal goeie geselskap wees.

ENGLISH:

I enjoy sitting around, chatting as much as running/driving around, seeing and experiencing things, so I should be good company whatever you prefer!

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, Botswana, Germany, Mozambique, Namibia, Netherlands

Countries I’ve Lived In

South Africa
