About Me

I'm working as a journalist in Groningen and that's exactly what I love most: being busy with words and talking to interesting characters. Kind of the same reason why I'm on Couchsurfing! Because meeting people from all over the world is super interesting.

I went on a big 3 month trip to the USA in 2017 and that made me fall in love with travelling. Unfortunatly my job has me tied down a bit, but when I can, I'll try to hop on a plane! I also love reading/writing, kick some ass at boxing, watching movies and going out for food/drinks. I also really enjoy to take a stroll around the park/beach. Just basicly having fun doing all kinds of stuff!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting people from all over the world. And as a traveler to see the area through the eyes of an local, that's just so much fun.
