Travel, learn, meet new people, new places.
I've enjoyed traveling ever since I can remember. Before I graduated (last year) I traveled a lot in South America, Asia and Southern Europe. 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.
I´ve found that a lot of nice things can happen when you stop judging about other people´s lifestyles and ideas. Judging sort of closes your mind down. Furthermore I don´t like to plan my future too much. So: live and let live and seize the day.
I also like to think that things happen for a reason.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I surfed couches in Argentina and Brazil and got involved in the local CS communities. It was a great experience and met many welcoming hosts and fellow travelers. When I got back to the Netherlands, I hosted some amazing people until I moved to Amstelveen (town nearby Amsterdam). Right now just available for coffee/drink.
Traveling, (acro) yoga, movies, cooking & baking, salsa, tango, languages, books, psychology, anthropology, arts, sleeping....
