About Me


Meeting interesting people from all over the world


My friends would probably say that I am a restless guy you can have a lot of fun with, who is honest and reliable.

At least I hope so - otherwise it might be difficult to convince them from the opposite after all these years :)


I take life as it comes and smile

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting new people
Offer my couch if possible
Participating in CS Events
Be a guide


I started CS when I moved to Brussels in 2012.

So far I have met so many different and interesting people, have hosted guests and participated in different events.

My overall experience was really great, fingers crossed I didn't have any bad experience so far.
