About Me


Shiatsu, environmentalise the world


I love to travel, languages, shiatsu, books, food and nature. I have traveled in Latin America, Africa, Asia, spent a year in India. I used to work for a human rights organisation, was politically active. Now I am more into alternative medicine. I am currently travelling in the US and Canada to visit intentional communities.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer a futon on the floor.


I hosted a few people and it was great!! So nice to have the world land on your living- room futon:-)
Two of the people who came to stay with me became very good friends and I ended up staying at their place, on the other side of the world. CS is quite amazing like that!
Other than that I csurfed mainly with people in Canada and the US and so far only had very good experiences.


Travel, languages, good food, shiatsu, alternative medicine, music...and lots more!
I am more and more looking into ways in which we can combine self- healing with the healing of our earth- the two are to me intrinsically linked.
