About Me

I have done a fair bit if couch-surfing and met some interesting characters. After 3 years of moving around I'm looking forward to stay put in Utrecht and to be a host for a change. At the moment I live quite small, so open to hosting to people I've met before :)

Small encounters and meeting new people. I love observing and learning about someone’s every-day life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It is a lovely way of meeting new people and experiencing places. I enjoy chats with locals over a drink. I've had the pleasure of doing a lot of couch surfing for the first time when visiting St. Petersburg, and spent my time with small-town hosts in Australia (hard to find!) . I've had quite enough of travelling for the moment but would like to stay in the loop :)

Last few years I got really in to bicycle touring and like to meet people when I find myself in the cities.
