About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to travel to the end of the world, or die trying

ABOUT ME

I am the practical type, if it's broken, fix it!
In 2010/2011 I took a leapyear to travel, those travels have made a big impact on me.
I now study mechanical engineering in Delft and try to make time to fix my bike sometimes. My friends may define me as a hippie in disguise. I'd say I just want to engineer .....(drumrolls)......''worldpeace''.

PHILOSOPHY

If you don't know it, try it!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to spread joy and peace all over, and i can make a mean chilli. I live in Delft in a studentflat(which I share with 5 sparkling people), the lovely old city is a peculliar background to the booming collegelife... if you come over, a tour is mandatory!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The first time I went overseas by myself I spent my first night couchsurfing, it was like I had crashed into the friends I never knew I had. I've been cavesurfing, dumpsterdiving, worked at a nonprofit bikerepairs shop, played golf. The best thing was always.....pampampamm......cooking together with my host!! Couchsurf and use your board for chopping.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

sappa village(vietnam), rice fields.... the road up there is dangerous and cold, but when you get there you wouldn't care about your bus crashing into the valley, because you've seen all that... In slovakia the vysoké tatry mountains had me blacking out.

Teach, Learn, Share

My mom is a macrobiotic and instead of watching TV we would watch my mother cook, she taught us well since she doesn't have to cook when we come over. I am the youngest of seven so it goes without saying that I know how much sharing makes a difference. All of us wen't in different directions, you learn that you can do anything. I would like to teach everyone how to do everything.
