About Me


I'm a student (almost finished with by studies in geology), easygoing, open-minded and most of my friends would probably tell you I can be quite lazy, although I consider that to be one big misunderstanding.
At the moment I'm spending most of my time writing my thesis, but besides that I like doing sports, meeting up with friends, reading books and watching tv-shows (which people mistakenly take for being lazy) and playing the guitar.


Really not much of a philosopher, I just try to be a decent person by being nice to others and being good to my friends/family

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have a couch available in Utrecht, in a house I share with two friends.


Haven't used couchsurfing before myself, but the two guys I'm living with are also on couchsurfing so we've had a couple of couchsurfers over at our place. The times we had couchsurfers staying with us have been good fun and it's a great way to meet new, interesting people, so I decided to sign up.


I'm interested in plenty of things (science, history, other cultures, travelling, music, etc.). Sadly, I don't spend nearly enough time reading up on the subjects that interest me, so I really don't know as much about these things as I'd like.
And off course I'm always interested in other people and their stories.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I'm almost done with my studies in geology, so ...
