About Me

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” – John A. Shedd

Thats how I started my travel. I had quite a ordinary live; I was studying and working in the weekends on a job I didn't really care for.

I went through a relatively bad time and realised that I needed to change something ... So I packed my backpack in Januari 2019 to go to Thailand and became a monk for 3 months. 😊

The plan was to find out what I wanted to do with my live and clear my head. I was initially going to backpack for 2 weeks after these 3 months ... But they became almost 5 years now 😂

Its been 5 continents and more than 50 countries, and I'm not done yet!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I just felt in love with the philosophy and got envolved right away.


Just so you know ... I LOVE BEER, and everything around it. I also like talking and listening for hours, getting to know new cultures, checking things off my bucket list and sometimes I volunteer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been a buddhist monk

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you to dance and meditate if you would like😊
I'm known for being able to fix about everything, from toasti makers to toilet flushers. So sometimes I help hosts with fixing something in their house.
