I'm a 22 year old New Zealander currently studying abroad in Amsterdam. I'm pretty new to Couchsurfing but really keen to give it a go as I've met some very cool guys who have been staying on friends couches here and have had the best experiences through it!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
While I'm not exactly the best (in fact I only really started a few months ago), I love to cook!! This may be down to the fact that it is quite new to me and the novelty is yet to wear off.. hah but yeah, more than happy to help out with dinners and whatever else needs doing during my stay
Haha so like cooking, this too is quite new to me but my one experience was incredible! I spent 2 nights in Chamonix France where I spent three full days hiking though the French Alps, a trip in itself incredible made that much amazing by the best host. I've also had some couch experiences of late with friends staying with me, most recently last week when a friend from NZ came to visit. He was having.. stomoch problems, need less to say I am happy that I slept on the couch as my bed to not fare to well..
Back home in NZ I play quite a bit of golf and love to get out tramping in the mountains (something I miss in the Netherlands), ideally I'd be out running the trails but I broken ankle and subsequent surgery's prevented that the last year. Recently got back into the guitar after a 10 year hiatus and loving it, not that good but nice to play songs I actually like as opposed to "Ode to Joy" or whatever else they were teaching back then. I also really like cycling

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I spent two months living in Uganda in early 2013. One of the best moments of that trip was while whitewater rafting down the Nile and our raft flipped at the beginning of one of the sections, I was taken down the rest of the rapid right next to one of my best mates which was a very cool experience. The whole trip was an incredible experience but that moment defenitely stands out
