About Me


Working and enjoying life in Tromsø



I am 23 years old and live in a smaller city in the middle of The Netherlands.
I have to say I am not a lot in my home country..I lived abroad for a few times in different countries and now I am back in Tromsø, Norway again to work as a tour guide.

I traveled quite a bit and loved couchsurfing and meeting other couchsurfers every time.
I finally have the opportunity to host as well so shoot me a message if you are looking for a place to stay


Live, laugh, love!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


While travelling I hope to surf and meet other couchsurfers as much as possible:)

If I am able to host, I would like to give you tips what to do and see in the country and let taste our great Dutch food like stroopwafels, pannenkoeken, drop, pindakaas, hagelslag and speculaas..YuMMMMMMMMY!

While I am in Norway we Unfortunately dont have the dutch cookies etc. But will definitely help you and give tips what not too miss in this area!


My experiences so far were amazing, hosts who showed me around, ate some local food and welcomed me at their place!

Great and easy going surfers with interesting and fun stories


Travelling, Mountainbiking, hiking, kayaking, rollerblading, zumba, going out for dinner/drinks/party/movie/theatre, meet new people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the best Northern Lights in 8 years in Northern Finland!!!

I've been to the Rocky Mountains in winter and summer and it is sooooo amazing!!! In winter it was beautiful with the snow and ice everywhere and the summer there were turqoise lakes, wildlife, great views!

I did a hike to the top from the Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, when I was on the top I saw a stand for paragliding, asked for some info and than they told me they had 1 spot left for an half an hour later...I thought about it for 10 minutes and than I just booked it and it was sooooooo amazinggg!!! Flying from the top, above the gondola to the base of the mountain, WOWWW!
