About Me

The past 10 years, I have spent as much time traveling and living abroad as possible. In all, I have lived in The Netherlands, China, and Suriname and traveled to over 40 countries — mainly in Europe, Asia and South America. Meeting people from different countries and cultures proofed more than once an amazing experience.

To introduce myself in a few words: I'm huge (almost 2 meters), friendly and a bit goofy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is of course an excellent opportunity for budget traveling and meeting new friends from all over the world.

Above all else, the success of the CouchSurfing project is one of those things that sustains my faith in humanity.
