About Me

I have been a student for a while, and I graduated from university in 2015. I then left Belgium in September 2015 to travel around Europe, Middle-East and Africa.

You can see where I am right now on http://some-go-east.be

I have been a boy scout for 19 years, I play bass guitar and was the singer of my band, and I have travelled around Europe the last couple of years.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is just an amazing way of travelling! I like meeting new people from around the world and listening to their stories about where they went and what their dreams for the future are.

I am also a big fan of the Belgian music scene: BRNS, Raketkanon, Amenra, Wallace Vanborn, Condor Gruppe, Girls in Hawaii, ...

You can find out more if you host me ;-)

A book which gave me a lot of inspiration to travel is Nick Danziger's travels: Beyond Forbidden Frontiers. It's an amazing book, situated in the 80's, about Nick Danziger's travels through Asia.

I also loved to read Haruki Murakami, Charles Burns Dan Brown, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Catcher in the Rye, A Clockwork Orange, Catch 22, The Martian, Nick Cave.. and graphic novels in general.

Teach, Learn, Share

In 2011 I went to former USSR countries and tried to learn some Russian, but I'm at an extremely basic level now. I'd really like to improve this, so Russian speakers are more than welcome :-).

I can help people out with building (small) websites, computer and other technical problems...
