About Me


To live the best life I can!


RODIEN is an Animal-loving-vegetarian.
Connector. Writer. Motivator. Painter. Photographer.
Lives with 2 black dogs, 3 cats and a couple of crazy bunnies. :-)
4 birds just joined our group!
I am a believer of mother nature and the cosmos. I do not smoke. I don't take drugs. I am a social drinker.
I love to read and write and have good interesting long conversations. I love learning, as much as possible. I love to be in nature. I love to be surrounded by my animaux. I love travelling and seeing other cultures and meeting people. I love music and dancing. I love open fires and cosy nights with friends. I love cooking and eating. I love just being in the moment. Despite being a very responsible person and a bit of a control freak. :-) (Know thy self.)


My company motto:
"A better world is everyone's business"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Be open to people in General. Whether they sleep on my 'couch' or that I sleep on theirs. If it feels good - I am open to the new experience and lessons of life.


I have had many friends from over the whole world stay with me. From Japan, Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Israël, Australia etc etc. And everytime is a joyfull experience!
And I'm glad that I can always stay with my friends too all over the world - is a rich and thankful experience and feeling.


Animal welfare
Love and friendship
Healthy FOOD

Music, Movies, and Books

From Science to Spiritual to Comedy to Drama... Just what the mood wants at that moment.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Worked on a yacht for 10 weeks on the southern point of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia out of Airlie Harbour. In a wooden sailing boat - a Duncanson. Fitting 6 to 8 passengers, me and the skip! Waking up with turtles and dolphins every morning. Pure Bliss...
Also went to Paulo Coelho's Birthday party in Paris in 2009. Was pretty good. :-)
I've done so many beautiful and amazing things in life already - it's been a crazy but wonderful journey so far.
