About Me

*** Highlights for Antwerp City for November 2022 ***
(if there is special news or events, I'll write it here)
*********************************************************
I'm a creative and passionate person. Always interested to learn new things. I like to travel, preferably to the more exotic but interesting areas. Like to meet new people and discover new cultures.

Usually I only can accept guests during weekends (Friday evening - Monday early morning) , however, sometimes during the week is possible depending on my schedule.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people while traveling, and meet travelers in my home town.
Discover different cultures.
Make new connections.

Interests

I'm always interested in new technologies at one side, but also like to relax and enjoy life.

  • photography
  • dining
  • technology
  • movies
  • traveling

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't read as much as I used to, but I like the books from Dan Brown.
I listen to anything from Rythm & Blues, Classic Jazz, all the way to movie music scores, pop, rock, ...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Drink hot chocolat at 6am in the morning, at the south rim of the Grand Canyon, while watching the sun rise.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you around my home city (Antwerp), also the lesser known corners, or little gems, usually missed by a regular tourist. (Although in my experience, a lot of Couchsurfers are surprisingly well prepared :-) )
I can help you on the hunt for some good (local) food in the city, where you can find the best chocolate or beers ;-)

Please Note: if you want to come over and visit Antwerp, you may want to avoid Mondays, because most musea, some good places to eat, and other places to visit, are closed on Mondays in Antwerp City!

Some hints & tips for when you prepare your visit to Belgium or Antwerp:
- To get to Antwerp from Charleroi Airport : https://www.rome2rio.com/map/Charleroi-Airport-CRL/Antwerp
- To save on mobile data : use the google offline maps function for Belgium to download the whole Belgium before you come over
- Or install https://maps.me : offline maps, designed for travelers
- In Belgium, most shops close around 18:00, most supermarkets close at 20:00
