About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Grow

ABOUT ME

Just read what others wrote about me.

PHILOSOPHY

All I experienced, made me the man I am! What's next?

I'm growing as a person, but not as fast as I would like. One day I hope to become a wise man.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted several times and on my way to Santiago I was a guest for a few nights and I loved it!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've enjoyed good guests! You're welcome!
In April 2010 I visited the Eindhoven-meeting. In March 2011 I went to the first Bossche meeting ('s-Hertogenbosch).
In 2012 I was on my bike to Santiago de Compostela. On the way I surfed a few couches. I met great people who made the journey unforgetable. Santiago was the result, not the goal!

Interests

Eating and drinking with friends, football (unfortunately I can't play anymore), table-football (I have one in my livingroom!), history, geografy, NLP, fairy tales and legends, storytelling, running (impossible too), learning, travelling, dancing, reading, listening to music, making mozaiks, philosophy, tai chi, sauna, boardgames, acting, filming, masques and carnaval.

Music, Movies & Books

My favorite movie is "Le fabuleux destin d'Amelie Poulain", but it's more known as "Amelie". Other favorites are the movies "Rumba" and "La Fée" (with Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon), "Baraka", "Kilometro 0" and "Lola rennt/Run Lola run". Also movies from Monty Python as "Life of Brian". Others I like are "Pippi Langstrump", "Ronja Rövardotter", "Aaltra", "Volver", "Los amantes del circulo polar", "Koyaanisqatsi", "Powaqqatsi", "I served the king of England", "EdTV", "Bigh fish", "The game", "Slumdog millionaire", "I heart Huckabees", "Der Himmel über Berlin", "Johan Primero" and "A fish called Wanda". On television I really am a big fan of "My name is Earl" and "South Park". Also I like the documentaries of Morgan Spurlock, such as "Supersize me" and "The best movie ever sold".

I love music. Just not one style. It's very diverse. I will give some names. Manu Chao, Yann Tiersen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Krang, Faithless, dEUS, Zita Swoon, Snow Patrol, André Manuel, Bran Van 3000, Kinobe, Junkie XL, DAAU, Gotan Project, Michael Nyman, Ennio Morricone, Paco de Lucia, Stromae, Bebe, Lhasa, Los Amigos Invisibles de Venezuela and many, many more.

I read a lot, fiction and non-fiction. History, (auto-)biograficals and news-magazines. The fiction I enjoy is from Roald Dahl, Jonas Jonasson, Tony Ross, Astrid Lindgren, Max Frisch and Preussler. My favorite books are "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho and "Le livre de saphir" by Gilbert Sinoué. Some Dutch autors I like are Jules Deelder and Jan Terlouw. Beside all this I love fairytales and interesting stories.
Right now I love the books of Berthold Gunster. It changes my views. Rob Wijnberg has great philosophical comments on various subjects, which I love to read. Another book I enjoy is written by Bouke de Boer, about NLP.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've enjoyed real love. And again!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach many things. I'm interested in so much. And I'm used to it, I'm a teacher (children from 4- to 12-years old) and NLP-mastercoach.

I want to learn as much as possible. Especially about life, love , NLP and Spanish language.

I want to share with everybody who wants to share too.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Many, many stories. Coaching, humor, being!
