About Me


To awaken in a strange city is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world


A young traveler, looking for new cultures and insights. Interested in innovating businesses and cultural differences I see opportunities in a lot of fields. When I travel I find it important to mee locals and to experience every culture.

I love to go out to pubs, bars and clubs and talk about sports, life, love etc. I don't have a lot of experience besides that I have been an active member in the Shanghai CS community.

I find it important that people behave properly, in no matter what situation. Morals are important to me as well as respecting people for what they like. Judging people without properly knowing makes no sense.

Feel free to add me, and I'm looking forward to meet as much as CS'ers around the globe. Love the idea of hosting and staying at others people without material expectations.


Doing what you like is freedom, liking what you do is happiness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I recently joined CS. I'm planning to visit some places in China by using CS.

Joining the local meetings and activities.

I will host people in the near future when I'm back in Holland, where I have the space and opportunities to actually host people.


Not much experience, however this will change soon!


Football, going out, culture, sports, photography & filming.

Furthermore I really enjoy browsing the internet looking for the cheapest ways to travel. I have so many concepts that I could travel the next 50 years with these concepts ;)
