About Me

Heya:) I am Hester, 25 years and born in The Netherlands. Currently I am living in Amsterdam and finishing my masters in Sport an Performance psychology. After the summer holidays I plan on starting my own business as a freelancer to provide personal development workshops in schools. Before starting this great adventure I am traveling through East Europe to see the beautiful nature, hike, read books, meet new people and and have a good time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on couch surfing because I love to experience the real Eastern-Europe. Off course I want to visit the big cities, but I would also love to see the country sides and experience how summer days are spent around here. Since I am traveling alone, couchsurfing is a great way to meet locals and share a bottle of wine while we reflect on the beautiful day:)


I love being outdoors. Hiking is one of my favorite summer activities. I am really looking forward to explore the nature of Czech and surrounding countries. Apart from that I love to do collaborate cooking, reading books, and dancing to African music.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently I am reading a lot of books that are linked to performance psychology. My favorite is Mindset by Carol Dweck. My favorite type of music is AfroBeat/AfroJam. I love going crazy and losing all my energy while responding to the beat of the drums.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share my great vegetarian recipes, dance moves and my views on how to live a happy life. But most importantly we can always share a bottle of red delicious wine:)
