About Me

CURRENT MISSION

making new friends and seeing new places

ABOUT ME

I'm a young man who want to see other places and from a close vieuw.

I got interest in some cultures and think with couchsurfing that I will learn more about them.

I like a good drink. I like a good laugh, going out, nice company and good food. Storytelling about what I have seen and listening to stories of others Also, I like to do some things I normally wouldn't do.

Btw, Spanish speaking couchsurfers are highly welcome here as I need to practice my Spanish a bit. However, big chance I don't try to practice it.

PHILOSOPHY

everything is relative

tomorrow is an other day

live, and let live

Once in a lifetime take a chance at the right time the glory to see Rise up for the time of your life Now the time has come for you to be free (DragonForce)

There's a million ways to see the things in life a million ways to be the fool (I want out - Helloween)

Music, Movies & Books

books: fantasy (example: Tolkien)

music: rock (Bon Jovi, Blind Guardian, Sonata Arctica ... and many more) but I stand open for a lot of different music. everything I do, blame it on the love for rock'n roll. Dutch songs, country, jazz ... I have a big taste of music.

movies: I'm not a fan of thrillers and horror

One Amazing Thing I've Done

working is amazing for me ... and my colleagues, we like to look at working people.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn the language of the places I go to, of the language of my hosts if that is a different one.

I can share some Belgium/Dutch/Flemisch/Netherland music if my memory works good

and maybe I can teach a few words Dutch to my hosts and guests.

Countries I've Visited

Canada, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of
