About Me

To put into few words, I'm queer, spiritual and a dreamer at heart. I am passionate about travel, knowledge and experiencing what the world has to offer.

I am frequently travelling for work and not necessarily through Couchsurfing, but this is a great community of travellers.

I haven't been an extremely active member in the Couchsurfing community since my travel to Europe but I hope to get reconnected to this amazing community.

I work as a freelance journalist and researcher and I'm based out of The Netherlands, but travelling through Europe for now . Would love to meet people and make some friends here but also open to creative collaborations and ideas for covering arts, culture, travel and political stories.

I’m also available on Instagram @verslunivers

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I look forward to meeting people from all over the world and sharing with them. I hope to find hosts and friends around the Netherlands and the world.
Always open to artistic, creative exchanges too
I'm also looking for people to practice my French with, so that's always great for me si tu parle français !

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn about different cultures, few greetings in your language and also about different ways of living.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am very enthusiastic to learn about different cultures and I could paint you something or paint with you. I can also offer some basic lessons on yoga, or any of the languages i know!
If there are enough spices available, I could also cook you something traditional.
