About Me

Positive minded Belgian teacher working in Kinhsasa. Curious and open to new experiences and always exploring. Passionate about traveling, cooking, dancing (kizomba) and photography.

Crazy about Africa. I travel as much within the continent as I can and I'm very into nature and wildlife. I love safari and photographing animals.

I'm a social person and during my free time I hang out with friends, I cook, dance, play tennis,run, go to the pool and listen to music. Nowadays that's mostly afro and kizomba.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I want to make people feel at home and do the best I can to give them a wonderful experience.


It has been wonderful so far, I have made great friends and met very unique people.
