About Me


Hoping that people actually write a propper request... when they want to stay with me


How can I discribe myself..
Well a bit chaotic, talkactive, and maybe slightly ADHD.. But further on I'm normal ;) I slowed down after having my baby girl Hannah. So that's a plus. I'm a big cat lover (aminals in general!).. And like almost everybody that read my profile, I'm a CS addict and love travelling..
It started in 2004 when I went far far abroad and I did the trans-Mongolia-express.. And it started my travelbug. After that I quited my job and travelled around the world for 6 months.. But I'm still not satisfied..

I work in a microbiology lab. And I love it! I'm actually a nerd in this way.. :) so be aware! :)


A day without a smile is a day not lived.... (but then its a dutch saying weirdly translated)

For an pessimist I'm pretty optimistic

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A friend of mine gave me the link and said that it would be great for me.. Cheaper than hostels (cliche).. So I joined and I'm loving every moment! Its also way better then the hostels I ever stayed in! I love sharing stories and just having some one to talk to over dinner (I can make pasta, but if I'm travelling with my Jim than he will cook a lovely dinner!)


Since I've been a member I met a lot of interesting people!! I hosted a few! But I live far away from everything....
But now I'm really getting into the surfing!!
I'd surfed in 15 countries now! Where I met beautifull people with great couches! I hope to meet more people trough this!!


Singing, playing guitar, reading books (love pratchet at the moment), dancing. And ofcourse travelling!
