About Me


I recently broke my foot in Turkey while being on my way hitchhiking to Vietnam. I decided to let it recover in Belgium, so I'm able to host again.
You see? Every bad thing always leads to something good! XD


Hi there!

I'm Mathias, produced in 1992 and my roots are originated in Belgium spoil.
I'm an open minded, positive thinking, ecological guy who's often dreamy with his head in the clouds.
Exploring new places, being open for new experiences or other prospects of life and meeting interesting people is what makes me feel alive and fills my heart with love and happiness.
I'm a little spiritual, not religious, but I strongly believe in Karma. If you're being a shitty person, you'll attract this and than it will be hard finding happiness in life. While when you try to be a good person and help each other, good things will happen to you.
My biggest interest is to see as much as possible different aspects of this wonderful world we are living in, the beauty of it, to learn and understand about different cultures, the population and the fairness of it all to enrich my mind and help me grow to become the man I want to be. Slowly getting there hehe.
Beside nature I really enjoy music, art, sports and brewing beer.
Who knows we might ever share a glass of my home brewed craft beer together.

My favourite moto in life is: Live and let live!



I try to treat people the way I would want to be treated myself.
Trying to go without too many expectations and embrace people and situations the way they occur.

Live and let live!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My idea is to travel hitchhiking and see where I end up and whoever I meet. Everybody has their own story and I'm very interested in learning yours.


I want to see as much as possible of the beauty of the world and what mother nature has to offer. And by doing that, meet as much as possible loving and amazing people, discover wonderful places and incredible parts of nature.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Honostly, I believe I'm busy doing it right now: just living

Teach, Learn, Share

"The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
People need to experience new things in order to be truly happy."
-Into the Wild-
