About Me

CURRENT MISSION

try to see everything and more

ABOUT ME

Hi my name is Laurent. Just 18 years old, but about to travel the world. I always have loved exploring, enjoyed seeing what's around the corner, meeting interesting people with even more interesting stories. Last year I went backpacking for two weeks in the Norwegian wilderness and have had the travel bug ever since, so now I will go to South-America for 7 months to travel, to canoe, to work in the Bolivian jungle(I love mother nature), to learn Spanish and most of all to seek adventure. And that is the main reason i prefer Couch Surfing above some cheap dorm: not only just to have free place to crash, but to learn something about the culture and ideas of the locals, which i can't find in my Lonely Planet, and to share mine with you.

(Me llamo Laurent. Yo tengo 18 años . vivo en Nijmegen en Holandia. yo no hablo Espanol, pero voy a aprender hablar espanol, porque voy a viajar en Argentinia , chile y bolivia. Yo salgo el undécimode de noviembre y vuelvo el 31e de mayo. Vuelo en cordoba, cordoba es una ciudad en Argentinia, donde yo tengo un mes un cursillo de Español)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Go into and survive in the Norwegian wilderness for two weeks, without any luxury, communication or unnecessary tools, just a backpack full of food, some rope, a tent and 24 hours of sunlight.
