About Me


Rock 'nd Rolla in Shanghai @ Spring Festival


Well, what pops in my mind would be, Ask them!
No, they will maybe say that I travel to much, that I´m always looking for new friends (like if they're not good enough) and probably that they miss the party and fun in the group. But please, if you want to be sure, ask them: 0031-6086... ;)


Travelling is the only thing you buy, which makes you richer

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, just started. See if CS works for me. If yes, I will offer people my couch when I get home in May!


Meet already a lot of people through CS in Shanghai. The meetups are very useful! Met a girl on CS who showed me around in Hong Kong, and got a couch in Shenzhen. So far, no complaints :)


As in passion: travelling, seeing the world, experiencing new things every single day.
As in interests: sports, football, dj, all kind of music (but electronic for party along), going to theatres, stand up comedy, hiking in the mountains, extreme sports (rafting, abseiling, ATB, etc.)
As in doing while travelling: meeting people, seeing other cultures.

I'm not really a museumtype, though museums about war I find very interesting.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music almost everything, but electronic when I'm partying / books, I stick to the travel books and humourous novels / love watching movies (with Shawshank Redemption and Les Intouchables as personal favorites)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelling with just local transport from Zanzibar - Mombasa, Kenya was just amazing. Got stuck on fishing boat halfway and without food/water in the middle of the sea, coz we run out of gasoline. No fun at all, but a good ol' story after all.

Climbing Huayna Potosi. What a climb, up to 6km altitude. When we finally got at te top, there was zero view. 10 minutes strawl down for 3 hours, while being exhausted.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I can tell you lots of stories about being robbed, getting into bad situations and getting threatened in Capetown's KFC. And of course about fun travelstuff! :)
