About Me

This is me: Mattias(27) and looking for couchsurfer I can host. I just came back from a year-and-a-half traveling. It was for sure the best thing i ever did. I met so many hospital and friendly people that i want to do something back for them by hosting myself. I traveled by motorbike from one organic farm to another to work as a volunteer in Europe and Asia. Adventure and living outside.... But now i changed my nomadic lifestyle for a more regular life in Gent.

I'm a calm person and like to have other people around me. I hope to continue my travels vicariously through hosting couchsurfers and listen to their stories while sharing a beer. I'm creative and handy. Professionally I'm product designer but currently looking for a job as i just came home after traveling. I'm interested in ecology and sustainable living, nature, more adventure, running, baking bread, kooking, traveling, …

PS: if you're Finnish or you can help me practice my french, you get VIP treatment ;) but other people are also welcome

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people, see the non-touristic side of places, see how people live there life and share experiences. And do the same for people i host.
