About Me

Hi, I'm Maarten. I've just moved to Brussels after living out of the city for almost 10 years. But even there, I had the opportunity to host many couchsurfers, some of which have become friends for life 🙏

Backpacking around the world. Visited over 70 countries 🌍

Summer 2015 I was studying in Seoul, South Korea, at Hanyang University. I can read the Korean alphabet and understand a little 🇰🇷

Cycled over 3300 km from Brussels to Saint-Petersburg for charity in 2018 🇷🇺

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Always looking for new experiences, new faces and new places!


Trying to have a healthy and active lifestyle, surrounded by nice people, often with a fresh beer or a glass of wine.
