About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the World!!!

ABOUT ME

I am an outgoing, spontaneous girl and likes people who can play guitar. I like to listen to music, eat good food and drink wine. I also like to chill out with my couchsurfers and chat about different lives, countries and cultures.

PHILOSOPHY

Live like this day is your last. Enjoy every minute of it, life is too short to worry about little things. Stay cool, relax and be friendly.

Don't take life too seriously, it isn't permanent!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I was travelling I have met lots of nice people all over the world. Now I have my own house and we host people and organise meetings/dinners for other travellers. I tries to organise some dinners while travelling and organised some dinners in Chengdu, which were all very nice and much fun!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

June 2010: Met Paul in Aachen and travelled together in Thailand, we did the Open Water diving course together in Koh Tao, and had a great time. Met Anne in Bangkok, we travelled two days together and visited some nice temples. August 2010: I was surfing Xiang's couch and had a great time there. Was a very good experience, she made me really feel at home. I surfed her couch again when I came back from Shangri-la. September 2010: I surfed Jane's couch in Chengdu, organised some CS dinners (and met Tracy who offered me her couch), so when I came back from Tibet I surfed Tracy's couch. And again organised some nice dinners!! Met Ashley and surfed with her in Chengdu. October 2010: Couchsurfed in Hong Kong Met Darien in Penang Malaysia at a meeting and became friends with him. December 2010: Did some meetings in Phuket and became friends with Antonio and Shady. January 2011: Attended/organised some meetings in Chiang Mai with Shady and met Max. We travelled together for more than a month through North Thailand an Laos and he introduced me to Luca and Aga. February 2011: Surfed with Rodrigo and his housemates in Sydney. March 2011: Attended CS zone meetings in Melbourne. April 2011: Surfed with Joe in Airlie Beach, travelled with Sara and Jessica to Tasmania and surfed with Patrick in Hobart. After this a lot followed, hosted people in The Netherlands and now a bit more inactive. But will try to get involved more soon... But this is how it all started.

Interests

Sports; snowboarding, skieen, surfing, horseriding, fitness, swimming and dancing. I have been dancing Ballroom and Latin for 7 years and learned to dance Salsa. Reading a good book, watch movies, partying, shopping, cooking, like good food and I like to prepare dinner for my hosts/guests.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Psychological Thrillers and Crime. For example: Dragonfly, Taken, The Green mile. But also The Kite Runner, Seven years in Tibet, Dances with wolves. There are so many.... TV Series: Max got me totally addicted to Dexter, just all seasons are finished now :( Music: I like a lot of music, it depends on my mood. At home I like to listen to softrock, and I really like to go to festivals. So if you know a nice festival, tell me or take me there. Books: I love to read when I'm travelling but most of the time I meet so many people I forget to read, hehe. I'd love to write my own book one day and now write travelstories.
