About Me


Have a lot of fun, what else! :)


We've been travelling the world for a year and a half now. We started out in Amsterdam and went all the way to Kuala Lumpur without flying, using the available public transport. We've traveled through Eastern Europe, The Caucasus, Central Asia, China, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia. From Malaysia we went home for a three months to put some affairs in order. Now, we've flown to South Africa and are in the process of buying a Toyota Hilux 4x4, which might be bringing us all the way to Uganda.


So you say it's impossible, I'm trying anyway.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When home, I host. When on the road, always willing to meet.


Movies, Books, People, Beers :-), Landscapes, Animals & Languages. Actually, nearly everything, except needle work.
