About Me


I tend to make to many plans for my life, so from time to time I need to get away traveling. At least once a year the travel bug bites me again, so that I pack my backpack and head off to preferably tropical locations, so that I can put my diving skills to good use. When I am at home, I mostly work for my masters degree in Neuroscience, meet up with friends or make plans for my next trip.


Life is too short to be lived only at one spot on this beautiful planet !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfed a few different Couches and hope to host some people in the not to distant future !


I am a sports-person, doing pretty much everything from jumping out of a plane, doing any kind of ball related games, running, cycling,swimming, water polo to hiking.
Moreover I am interested in politics, the newest developments in economy and research related to neurobiology and psychology.
Last but not least I love traveling and meeting new people from all over the world. I think it was the best decision of my life to start traveling, with backpacking as the only way of doing so, although it became an (expensive) addiction.
