About Me

It is a great way to meet people and help in finding a better or affordable place. Love the interaction with foreign people who want to know more about our country.

I am now planning to travel so I cannot host anymore.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Bath (with warm water), toilet, kitchen, living room and porch are shared.

Just help me to keep the house clean, do the dishes and I can cook anything you have when I am not occupied.

Support my car with some fuel and I can drop you off where you want. A short ride uses SRD 25 fuel and to other places maybe SRD 100. Taxi will charge SRD 80 or more.

If you have the main ingredients I can cook Indian, Chinese, Thai and Indonesian dishes. No beef please. I am a Hindu.

For a buck you can use the washing machine to wash your used clothes. This is to cover energy charges, laundry detergant and fabric softener.

If you want some luxury and more privacy, but cannot afford a hotel, I have other options on airbnb (for example https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/25813682?location=paramaribo&guests=1&adults=1&s=67ZCvLCQ

Teach, Learn, Share

All the stories you need to know about our cultural diverse country, share travelling experiences from around the globe, learn and provide travelling tips and tricks.

Help keep the organic waste seperate so I can use it in my garden.

What I Can Share with Hosts

The strange stories, the diverseness of Suriname and difficulties and good times guests experienced at my home.

1. I understand that couchsurfing is mainly a activity where hosts provide a place to stay for guests. Per my own experience it is more than enough to provide a USD7500 room for free.

2. You do not have to spend your valuable time by entertaining me or showing me around. That is the job of a paid guide.

3. Please also do not worry about providing me food. A traveller should get or cook his own food.

This is why I joined couchsurfing.
