About Me


Finish my Master and start travelling again afterwards


Hi! I am Sophie and I live in The Hague since july 2012. Last year I travelled through South America (Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina). I wonderfull experience I would never forget :) Right now I am finishing the last year of my Master International Studies at the University of Leiden, in which I mainly focus on Latin America.
About myself.. I would say most of the time i am a very happy, open and spontanous person and I enjoy to make jokes and take life as it comes. But i can also be quite serieus at times and i can really enjoy a good discussion or a book.
I like to hang out with my friends and family, to read, to dance till the sun comes up ,to sing, relaxing in the park, study, watch movies, go to the theater and a lot more!
Would be nice to meet some travellers now that I dont have the opportunity to travel myself. Or some cool people in The Hague perhaps :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Tanzania to start! I went there last summer and this was a great experience. Especially the contact with local peaople really interested me and gave me another view on things in life. I also went to eastern europe (bosnia and serbia) a couple of weeks ago. I organised a studenttrip for a group of 40 history students of the University of Leiden. Learned a lot about their culture and history in the present past. Also had a great time going out in Belgrade. 2 years ago I went to Marocco and did a walking tour trough the high atlas mountains.

South America, 4 month backpack trip on my own. But never really have been alone. Wonderfull people, nature, language, food. Perfect experience, I want to go back soon!

Teach, Learn, Share

To teach:
- I can teach you about the dutch history
- to cycle perhaps? ;)
- show you nice places in my hometown or in any other great town in the Netherlands

I would like to learn:

- To play the guitar
- to cook your traditional food
