just moved to Ghent, looking to meet new people over here!
have finished my masters degree in modern history at the university of Leuven (Belgium) and now doing an extra year in Conflict and Development Studies.
I'm always open to meeting new people. I love travelling (whenever my money allows it), cooking for family and friends, reading....
This winter (december 19th 2011 till januari 11th 2012)I'm travelling to South-Africa with my best friend (also a couchsurfer). We'll be backpacking throughout the country, from JOhannesburg to Cape Town. We might look for some couches to crash on....
Next spring I'll probably go to Tunesia or the Philippines, not quite sure yet.
Dream like you'll live forever, and live like you'll die today (I think it was James Dean who said this).
Life is what happens while you're busy making plans.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
kayaking in Sweden was amazing. We slept on little islands every night, cooked our meals on a fire, and kayaked all day long. It was so quiet and beautiful, even if the wind and the rain made it hard sometimes, it was all worth it. When i came back I really suffered from a culture shock: I found everything noisy and found it really hard to be back home...
