About Me


Travel, learn, meet new people, new places.


I've enjoyed traveling ever since I can remember. Before I graduated [2012] I traveled a lot in South America, Asia and Southern Europe. In 2014 and 2015 I made trips to the US. Now I'm more focused on working... saving some money to hopefully travel again :-). With my friends I enjoy eating, talking and watching movies together.


Traveling frees the spirit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed couches in Argentina and Brazil and got involved in the local CS communities. I've also surfed in the Netherlands a few times. I had a great experience every time and met many welcoming hosts and fellow travelers. I hosted some amazing people in Amsterdam until I moved to a place where I'm no longer able to host people. Right now just available for coffee/drink.
