To see as much of the world as possible and to meet the most interesting people
I'm currently living in Utrecht where I'm doing a graduate degree in Medicine. I'm very addicted to travelling. My addiction began when I was 18 years old and I went on a world trip to Asia, Central- and South America. Since then I try (and mostly succeed) to spend every single free-day to travel. During short holidays in Europe, and whenever I have more time I'd like to other continents.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I really like the concept of Couchsurfing very much! It's a great way to meet interesting people when travelling and even while at home, and it is an amazing opportunity to learn about and understand different cultures.
I first came into contact with couchsurfing through one of my house-mates who quite often hosts people, it was always great to have foreign people in my house and it's was always lots of fun, so i made my own account, although i didn't really use it yet. My first own Couchsurfing experience was in Kaunas in Lithuania, I arrived in the middle of the night at the airport without any plans or any place to stay, by coincidence I met 2 couchsurfing girls and they offered to host me and a friend, we stayed there much longer than expected and it was really a great experience, so i'd like to do it as much as possible!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've been on a world trip through Asia, Central- and South-America for 7 months, which was the greatest time of my life. It was truly amazing to be able to live without any commitments or any plans and most of all to see the greatest places in the world and meet people of totally different cultures.
One of the best things on my world trip were a 4 day trek through the Andes in Peru towards the Machu Picchu, seeing the most perfect bounty-islands in Panama, a boat trip through the backwaters of Kerala in India, climbing a mountain in Indonesia, watching the most perfect sunset in Lombok in Indonesia and wandering around through the oases of Jericoacoara in Brasil.
