About Me

I am a happy Dutch vegan and live with my Iraqi husband and our 4 cats in Istanbul (Turkey). I have a green advertising agency and make paintings of animals. I am easy going and curious. I love animals and art. My dream is to find a peaceful and green place on earth where I feel at home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am looking for a place to stay for 2 or 3 days in Costa Rica from April 16th til April 29th 2016.
