About Me


Travel and Graduate


I'm currently an anthropology student trying to graduate at the end of this year. The past 2 months I have been involved in research in Hong Kong for my Bachelor's thesis. Traveling is a passion however I tend to enjoy the time I'm on my way the most. Although it can be stressful sometimes in general I find it relaxing to sit back and enjoy the view rushing me by. I especially love traveling by train or bus although taking off in an airplane is one of the best rushes there is. Meeting new people is always good and interesting and I think couchsurfing is a very easy and nice way to do that.


Live life to the fullest and enjoy it as much as you can. However never forget that you are the one who decides what that entails. Oh and definitely don't forget to laugh especially about yourself.. taking yourself too serious is never fun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think I participate well although sometimes I might talk a bit too much when I get really enthusiastic about something.. at least I'm (sometimes) aware of it


I have been couchsurfing in El Salvador which was fun. Through this experience I think I encountered things I wouldn't have encountered otherwise.
