About Me


Hi there,
I'm a calm but cheerful person, taking my responsabilities at work and in my family, but at the same time enjoying the most of all aspects of life. And that's a lot: going to the movies/concerts/theatre, going to have a drink in a bar, going dancing at a party, yoga, swimming, jogging, ... But travelling and meeting people from other cultures is my biggest hobby by far, and therefore couchsurfing is not only the perfect way to meet local people while travelling, but also to meet all these people while staying at home. And although there are so many great places in the world, I'm really fond about Ghent, where I live now already 12 years, so it's my pleasure to show my guests the beauty of this city.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By going regularly to couchsurfmeetings and organizing housemeetings myself, and by hosting and surfing now and then. So glad to have met already so many great people through the couchsurfcommunity!
