About Me


Planning my next trip to the Caribbean!


Originally from Holland I have been living in London for over 7 years and still loving it. I have traveled quite a lot all over the world and have also been lucky enough to have lived in Brazil, Cuba, Spain and South Africa.


Carpe diem! Life is too short so I try to enjoy it to the fullest.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My first couch surfing experience was in Sicily last year where I met lots of amazing people in only a couple of days. Would like to couch surf and meet more interesting people on my next trips and have also hosted a few times which was a great experience. Am usually fairly busy but happy to meet up with couch surfers in London where possible.


I met some amazing people through couch surfing when I ended up traveling to Sicily by myself as my friend couldn't make it at the last minute. I surfed for the first time when I went to Trinidad with a friend which was an amazing experience. Have hosted a few times as well.
