About Me


Working as a tour guide in Tromsø and while I am in The Netherlands seeing my friends/family and working as a supervisor in a restaurant.



I am 23 years old and live in a smaller city in the middle of The Netherlands. Last year I lived and worked in Vancouver and I really enjoyed it! Vancouver has so much to offer, shopping, beaches, parks, good restaurants and much more!

Now I just came back from living in Tromsø, northern Norway for 5 months. I worked as a guide for fjord excursions and northern lights trips. I will be back end may/begin June until august to work for the same company but ofcourse no Northern Lights trip since we will have the midnight sun;)


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!


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


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!
