About Me


See the world while acquiring Harry Potter books in all languages...


I'm a language and literature student from Belgium who loves to read (too obvious?) and who spends a lot of her time on the internet. Although I have acquired quite a big network of friends from all over the world, I tend to be fairly awkward IRL at first but once I find my comfort zone all my nerves will vanish and everything will be just fine :D From time to time I make crazy videos which I then post on YouTube as 'Nenalyzed'. I think I might be addicted to tv series. I recently learned how to knit and I love swedish crossword puzzles.


"You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are". It is not so much a philosophy but a quote I happen to like and live by. I feel that everyone should be the person they want to be. Quirks make people even more interesting and it never hurts to be a little crazy :)'Different' is the new normal.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I had to move back in with my parents for a while so I won't be able to host anyone. However, once I'll have my own place again I would love to host a bunch of people!


I've only had one Couchsurfing Experience so far and that one was pretty amazing!


I have a tendency to live on the internet. I am fascinated how connected one can feel even when you're miles apart. I have met so many awesome people online in the past 10 years. However, I feel like it is time to stop hiding behind my computer and make some proper memories! Instead of reading about all the amazing stuff people do and have done I would like to experience them myself!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Unfortunately I haven't seen or done many things yet (an unfortunate byproduct of 'living on the internet') but one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced was staying with an Australian host for a week. It was quite the culture shock!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not sure whether there is something I can teach anyone but I'm quite passionate about books, tv series and YouTube (perhaps the internet in general). I'm pretty sure there are many things I would love to learn about and I look forward to acquiring (or trying to acquire) new knowledge/skills!
