Join Couchsurfing to see Marloes’s full profile. It’s free!
I like: meeting people, watching people while drinking a big cup of tea or hot chocolate, reading, listening to music, being in nature, being in nature and listening to music, learning languages, singing, making a campfire, exploring a new city, walking in the snow, (ice)skating, eating Swedish cinnamonroles (kanelbullar!), trying to bake those 'kanelbullar', writing stories and poetry, reading (about) children's literature, Stockholm, eating vegetables and fruits, petting cats and wandering around, long train/busrides while listening to music wondering about everything and watching other people live their life.

-> With your feet on the ground (down-to-earth) you won't reach far...Don't forget to dream! Though being awake at night is great too! So don't forget daydreaming!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm looking for a place to sleep in places where I travel and I often like couchsurfing much better than staying in a hostel. It's such a different experience of a place. I love meeting new people from different countries and cultures.
I Couchsurfed in Sweden, Germany, Iceland and Ireland; those were all great experiences!
I had some people surfing my couch in my hometown Groningen, which were just positive experiences as well.
In random order:
Nature, literature, singing, walking, poetry, music, reading, children's books, Sweden, languages, writing, cities, children, skating, my cat Lappis
Music, Movies, and Books
Favourite book: Jag saknar dig, jag saknar dig! by Peter Pohl Wonderful book with one of the best combinations of words and thoughts I've read. Other books I love: books by Astrid Lindgren (the Lionheart Brothers! Ronja the Robber's daughter!), Joke van Leeuwen (dutch author/illustrator), Per Nilsson (another great Swedish writer of books for young adults), Jonas Hassen Khemiri, (travel) literature by the Dutch author Cees Nooteboom.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
