About Me

Hi! I am Laura and I just finished my psychology study in Leiden and I have lived in this lovely city for about 6 years. In the coming year, I want to travel and work in other countries and also to do volunteering work in the Netherlands, in order to get admitted into the master that I want to study: forensic psychology. Before I start doing that however, I really want to live in other countries for a while, and get to know other cultures and meet new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have some couchsurf experience already in Paris and Amsterdam and I loved it. Also I met up with quite a few people in Holland and France. I love to meet new people and hear their stories and I love to travel around. In return, I'd like to host people from now on, to give back what I received and to show people around in my beautiful hometown: Leiden.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

For the celebration of New Year 2015-2016 I went to Paris with my cousin. It was a special and wonderful experience, especially after the november 2015 Paris attacks. Despite the extra security and precautions the vibe was wonderful and we had a really great time!
