About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying my life!

ABOUT ME

Oi!! I love soccer, music, going out, good restaurants, traveling, enjoying a nice summer evening outside in Gent with friends (if you come you will know why).

PHILOSOPHY

Don't live to work, work to live!

voor de Belgen; "Leef niet om te werken maar werkt om te leven." (stond geschreven in het Nederlands op een tegeltje op de trappen van Selaron in Rio de Janeiro, think about it)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I just tell people about CS, that they really should check it out and that they don't have to be afraid. It's the perfect way to meet new people and learn more about their culture.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I did quiet a lot of CS during my travels in South America. I also received a lot of people, from all over the world, in my apartment in Gent. Embrace the world! :)

Interests

Travels, soccer, altinho, rock climbing, surfing, music, good food, (Belgian) beer,...

Music, Movies & Books

I love electronic music (techno, house, minimal, everything with a decent beat and bass line) I can really enjoy a nice reggae band, especially when it's on a beautiful beach. Here in Brazil I like the samba "beats", pagode, etc.. I also like salsa. The only genre I still have to get used to is Dubstep.. lol

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Going to South America :) See the waterfalls in Foz de Iguacu, climbing "os Dos Irmãos" in Rio de Janeiro, getting astonished by the ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru, walking on the Salares de Uyuni in Bolivia, skydiving in Argentina, snorkling in Bonito, climbing volcanoes in Ecuador, celebrating Carnaval in Colombia and Brasil and so much more...
