...Saying hello to freedom, adventure, new places and cultures to explore, and to what life really has to offer apart from the western world.

PHILOSOPHY

Live your life to the MAX, explore, seek adventure and enhance your experiences!
And ofcourse respect the people, cultures and religions you come across.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Spreading the couchsurf word, surfing, hosting and occasionally organizing a couch surf event.
I believe couchsurfing is a blessing to everyone who has the will and is open to new experiences with interesting people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted people in The Netherlands, hosted people while living in Lusaka, couchsurfed throughout Africa in every country I have been to, organized a CS event in Lusaka and met up with a lot of interesting people.

From sleeping on the ground, drinking from coconuts, and eating self made octopus soup on Mafia Island to 4 days of partying with a Mozambican pop star without letting me pay for anything! From having your own room and bathroom to sharing a house with a Tanzanian family of 9 people and sharing a bed with your host......

This is couchsurfing for me!
