Join Couchsurfing to see Ido’s full profile. It’s free!
Hi everybody, my name is Ido and I'm from the Netherlands. I'm an adventurous and sociable person with a passion for travelling, sports and the outdoors. I love meeting new people and sharing travel stories.
I was born in the cheese and stroopwafel capital of the Netherlands (Gouda), but grew up in the lovely city Delft which is often called 'small Venice' because of it's charming canals :-) A few of my passions are football, sailing, skiing, food and travelling! I'm a pretty laid-back person, love to be around people and like to get to know different cultures.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
A friend told me about the concept when I was traveling in Australia. I was immediately enthusiastic and decided to sign up, best decision of my life. I strongly believe in this concept of exploring a place through locals and make friends all over the world! Happiness is the only thing that gets bigger when shared, so share your experiences and be happy!
As you can see, my private life is mainly about sports, food and activities with friends :-)
