About Me


Explore Learn Love While Travelling Around the World


I am a "memorable moments" collector,easy-going, very sociable and flexible. Travelling is my greatest passion for which I am willing to step outside my comfort zone. So is teaching and working with young students.


When I'm old and grey I wanna look back and be able to say: "It's been a good ride!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


All my experiences with couchsurfing, whether I hosted myself or had the privilege to be hosted by other CS have been wonderful so far. It has definitely enriched my life and I could not imagine travelling without doing it anymore.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2008 I took a year and a half trip around the world to North, Central and South America, Easter Islad, New Zealand and Australia and parts of Asia. On the way I met many incredible people, especially CSers, I saw places that truly blew me away, such as: The Iguazu Falls, the blue glaciers in Patagonia, the pristine and raw beauty of the US and Australia, enfin, too many to mention.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach sombody how to drive a car, cook and the Dutch language.
I would like to drive a bus, fly an airplane and play the guitar.
I share my house, bread and wine.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A decent place to stay, city walks, bike rides etc. Some CSers I even joined on their trips through the country and abroad.
