About Me


Smiling, and living colourfully


I'm easygoing, full of energy. I'd love to host/meet up with new people from all over the world.
What about my tastes; I love doing all sorts of sports (climbing, hockey, running)
I like live music, I play djembé. Tried a bit of guitar, failed. Furthermore interested in good talks with friends, people, philosophy. I practice meditation and like to read loads.


Life's happening while your busy making plans!
What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sharing a good time! I don't even need a couch, a carpet is ok! Currently i'm hosting once in a while but my status is on No because i couldnt respond on the daily amount of requests (guess it is the consequence of living in amsterdam). Feel free to message me.


I'm just starting to get to know CS, but my first experience hosting worked out great. Amazing experience.


My friends, laughing - travels, (meeting) people, learning new stuff, discuss. Meditating. And all kinds of sports and music.
