About Me


Settle down in Deventer; singing, dancing, working and making new friends!


Hello, we are Marieke and Sjoerd. We left the Netherlands more than 8 months ago to wander around. We've seen many beautiful places and met a lot of nice people from all over the world! Dancing is our passion and we love to share stories with people.


Be curious, work for what you really want, but the best in life are friends & family

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As we are traveling we currently don't have a couch ourselves. We participate now in trying to give our host an excellent time...! When back in Holland be sure to sleep on our Couch!


We have quite some experience now. Last may we joined a CS trip in Jordan where we met a lot of other CS'ers. We made new friends. They taught us a little Arabic and showed us the pearls of Jordan. We had so much fun together! After the trip we arranged a Dutch party, including a Dutch meal!


Other cultures, learn how people live their lives. Dancing (salsa), photography (we try to), internet, reading, sailing and diving.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Last November we dived in Sipadan (Sabah, Borneo). It was amazing!! Like being in an real aquarium; sharks, turtles and many many beautiful fishes were all over the place. We even saw a big eagle ray! If you like diving and get the chance... you must go there!!
