About Me


I think couch surfing is a great way to learn from different people. Also it allows you to find the local secret places when traveling. I'm not on CS for cheap traveling. So I kindly ask you to not write me a request if you only want a free place to stay.


My couch in Edinburgh: I share a flat with Italian/Brazilian Mauricio https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/mtfaoro. We both have our own room and there is a nice cosy living room. We have a conformable steady 2 person raised airbed for our guests.

YOUR REQUEST - just a few lines of text with:

1) A personal message for me! Why do you want to meet me?
2) The general (copy paste) part. Write here about your trip and you(r travel mates)

I decline non personal (copy paste) requests. Thanks (:

If you send your request more than 3 weeks in advance I respond your request with a maybe. I will then decide a 1-2 weeks in advance if I want to host you or not. I just travel a lot as well, so I have no idea what I am doing more than a couple of weeks in advance.

Average I host every 1 or 2 weeks. I mainly host during weekends from Friday evening - Monday morning. I maybe make an exception to host during the week if you hosted many people before and if you are traveling alone.


* raised small town close to Rotterdam, The Netherlands
* studied and lived in Rotterdam
* lived in Barcelona and Edinburgh
* depenable, happy, carring tall teddy bear (that's what they said haha)

Faithful, talkative (and listing), kind, open-minded, straight (but I'm a LGTB friendly fag stag), sensitive and outgoing person. Like all kinds of (Erasmus) parties, have friends around me, hug, dance, drive motor and play music instruments, enjoy to live like a student! I could be more patient (with people) sometimes.. I take things not too serious and I like to laugh a lot. I like things sorted and organised, but I won't panic if something goes wrong :P
Guess other people describe me the best, so just read my references.

So you read my profile till here? You are crazy, but thanks ;-) Write me your favourite food or drink in your request and you'll receive bonus points.

I have been sending video requests as well. I think it's an easy way to give your host a sneak preview to who you actually are.. Feel invited to send me a video couch surfing request. Let's create the future of couch surfing! You can upload a video for example here: https://uploadfiles.io/ . Just put the link in your CS Request.

Tons of lovely stories... I can only summarise a few:

* Hosting hundreds of people in Rotterdam, Barcelona and Edinburgh. And every time you host you learn a little bit more... (I AM FUKING INTELLEGENT BY THE NOW hahahaha ;-) )

* One big road and couch surfing trip, 132 days in a row. 45 different hosts, 25 cities in Belgium, France, Portugal and mailnly Spain. I raised working from home to the new level: While I was Couch surfing I maintained my regular programming job remotely.

* Once I was hosted by a lovely strong believed group of mulsim guys in Bordeaux. I asked to join them at the prayer service. I felt really welcome being there and it was an experience not to forget. Two weeks afterwards I was hosted by a girl in Lisbon. That Saturday night we went to a gay club. I felt very welcome there is well. I think it is great how couch surfing merges this stories in some kind of way.

* 3 month spring trip to Miami, Colombia (Medellin, Bogota) and I lived 1 month in Rio de Janeiro.

* Many weekend trips to towns by couch surfing gave me the local perspective.
