About Me

I am inspired by the people around me, nature, other cultures, travelling, music, good vegetarian food... I am very engage in everything I do in life. For me it is important to live in a conscious and respectful way, towards others and the environment.
I share a house in Antwerp, Belgium, with 3 other friends. I have travelled around Europe, lived in Paris, did research in Ethiopia, worked one year in Bolivia.

Life is a gift. I want to enjoy it every day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had one of my nicest travel experience while CSing! Incredible how open and heartwarming people you just met can be! I am exited to meet new people while CS.
I believe sharing is caring and that is what makes CS so beautiful.
For me, couch surfing is the perfect way of travelling.

Biking and climing. Playing the guitar.
Of course I like traveling and discovering other cultures and people.
