About Me

Hi! I'm Martin and i'm from Namur, in Belgium. I'm teaching Geography in college and high school. At the moment I am living in Kinshasa, DRC. I am teaching in an international college in the center.

I like doing sports (cycling, hiking, swimming), being outside and learning new things. Every year, I am doing a bikepacking adventure in Europe. My next cycling goal is Tanzania in July 2024.

I'm open-minded, friendly and knowledgeable. Looking to have good meetings and sharings during my trips. Besides, i like to welcome foreigners and cooking to them a delicious meal from my country.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

A great opportunity to share stories, food, drinks and to discover new places with locals. It's funnier because all isn't always planned.
