About Me


Looking forward to my next trip


Hey there,

Please feel free to write me a request if you can give a good motivation to stay at my place! I don't live in Amsterdam!

I am a single guy, living in an appartment in a quite neighbourhood in the north of Haarlem.

I like to meet people from around the world! It is great to hear about culture and the lifes in other countries.
I like to have some dinner and drinks with my couchsurfers!
When i have time,I can show you around in the area by bike, by car or by train, anything is possible. I have some spare bikes.
Couchsurfing is a great way to explore your own city. I like to join my couchsurfers to visit a museum, a park or an event.
I like it when couchsurfers stay a few days and take the time to explore the area, so we can hang out.

Please note that I am gay, so don't expect ´guys talk´ about girls or sports. I hope you don't have a problem with that.


what you give is what you get!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am offering my couch to the couchsurfing community. depending the situation I like to show some nice places.


so far I hosted many nice couchsurfers at my place. Most couchsurfers are laidback and very friendly. Some couchsurfers cooked dinner for me, which is a big plus. With some couchsurfers I´ve had an awesome time in the nightlife. I am looking forward to more great times. I surfed a couch in Argentina one time. I visited some of my couchsurfers at their city to catch up.


I love to travel. I have travelled in many countries in the world such as Australia, New-zealand, Vietnam, India, Malaysia, Spain, Italy, and many other countries in asia and europe. During travel it is always difficult to connect the locals, so maybe couchsurfing is a good way to make friends all over the world!
I am crazy about food.
I like to go out in the weekend to restaurants, bars and festivals.

I am a volunteer at our local concert hall.

Music, Movies, and Books
