About Me

Currently traveling through South America, and always happy to meet locals or fellow travellers!


See the world


I am a curious twenty something year old who loves to travel and discover the world. I love to meet new people and new cultures, and learn from that.


If everyone would be open to all people from all cultures, religions, colors and opinions, the world would be a better place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am eager to see the world and meet people from everywhere, and couchsurfing is a great way to do so. Currently I am especially interested in surfing, because I am travelling, but after summer I am able to offer some place to sleep in Rotterdam too. Also if you want someone to show you around in Rotterdam, I’m up for it.

First time in Oslo (2010), which was a great CS potluck dinner with many other CS'ers. After hearing all their adventures I was enthousiastic to go on some couchsurf adventures too!

Now, nine years later, I have surfed and hosted (in Portugal, Sweden, Italy, Turkey and Emirates) many times more! All good experiences, and counting...


Travelling, life-stories, food(!), music, festivals, architecture, art, nature, swimming and I would really try some extreme sports sometimes.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music to dance to and sing along with, movies to laugh about, and books that make me think about something.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hard to choose, but right now I'd say going from 100 degrees celcius in a sauna to a very cold lake (5 degrees celcius) in the Swedish woods.. The feeling was amazing, it felt like I was in higher spirits!

Teach, Learn, Share

Try to learn as much of as many languages as you can, its fun and always a good conversation starter!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Architecture knowlegde (or advice)
And, even though my culinairy skills are simple, I love to cook. Dutch food is famous for being just boring and tasteless potatoes, but with a little magic, I can make a traditional Dutch dish that is actually not that bad!
