About Me

Hi there and welcome on my profile!
My name is Silvy, I'm a calm and friendly food blogger living in Berchem (close to Antwerp) with my cat Kasper.
- I do NOT live in the city centre of Antwerp, it's 20min by bike to the city centre.-

I'm curious, cautious but rash at the same time, I love to try/see new things and enjoy life to the fullest but I always try to stay rational and behave carefully.
Most of the time I'm an organized and responsible person but hey.. you know what 3 glasses of wine can do to a girl.

The world needs to be discovered and I love to visit places and meet new people. I'm very interested in other cultures though I don't like to be forced to do things that I don't feel comfortable with or that are illegal. (I had a bad experience like that in Morocco.) Traveling to me is developing myself as a person, enlarging my multicultural awareness and to learn about all kinds of food and food traditions from other countries.

I'm a foodie, so I'm ALL about food. I believe food brings people together, it doesn't matter which language you speak. (And a full tummy makes everybody happy.)

Sports: I love walking and cycling in my free time but I also make time to go to the gym 3 times a week. When I have some more time I go for a swim. I hope I will have time soon to also start practicing yoga again.

I'm a cat person. My cat's name is Kasper. He is social but not intrusive and het doesn't make a lot of noise. He's the perfect child.

I'm a morning person: I get up very early and will be very active/restless that part of the day until noon. I really love getting up at 6am fo a tour with my bicycle or a long walk.

I don't smoke and I don't do drugs. My house is smoke-free.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing for me is all about getting to know new people, new cultures, new food and having fun. I love to give you advice about the city, host you, cook together but I won't have time to show you around.
