About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Rediscover Amsterdam.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted a lot of surfers in 2012, aim to travel a bit more myself this year.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When my friends shared their stories of hosting couchsurfers I couldn't wait to join in on the fun; unfortunately acquiring a decent apartment in Amsterdam as a student is quite hard and it took me more than two years before I could move. Now that I've settled in my new apartment, which coincidentally has an extra bedroom, I can't wait to show people around the city and introduce them to the Dutch liberal, open minded approach to life.

Interests

I love music and have been going to gigs for years now,adding festivals all over europe in the mix to see my favourite acts and discover new bands. I like to discuss music but I prefer to dance to it, while when it comes to life you could say I'm the opposite; my studies allow me to analyse life to an extent most would find tiring. Both of these passions, music and contemplating life, are enhanced by a healthy consumption of a typical dutch delicacy; cannabis. I'm into two more C's; I love to cook and I adore cats.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing Pavement play for over two and a half hours in a tiny club three years back was a pretty memorable experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a trained public speaker and have taught people in the art of Rhetoric in the past and would love to help out in this field.
